Milnerton bridge

Claudine Rahl, Table View

Should the Milnerton wooden bridge be repaired at R30 million? The answer should have been a resounding “No!” as soon as the price tag reached R100 000.

Such a large amount cannot be justified. More so when less than 20 percent of the original bridge will remain.

The new bridge won’t provide any practical function when there is a road with sidewalks already.Neither will it draw tourists; Cape Town already draws tourists automatically.There are countless real needs desperate for any help, yet they are overlooked based on indifference or continuously denied based on colour or species.

To continue with this project will be proof of lack of judgement.
