Plenty of water leak that are not fixed. Plenty of street light that are on during day time, and other that are not working for months! Regards, Simon.

Die noodsaaklike dienste word agterwee gelaat maar daar word onnodige geld spandeer op minder noodsaaklike aspekte. bv. water en sanitasie, om maar enkeles te noem.

I have lived in Tshwane for nearly 16 years and service delivery is becoming worse and worse every year - exponential growth in non service delivery.
Tshwane have started billing a "beautification charge" (which is in effect a doubling up on the waste removal charge) some years ago (2016 i think) however the garden rubbish removal / transfer site at the Rooihuiskraal Historical Terrain and Animal Farm is not being maintained and kept clean. In summer, especially after a rainy day, one can smell the rotting plant material in the surrounding suburbs . This is a health hazard. In 2019/2020 summer Tshwane experienced a significant fly infestation. I have heard rumors that waste sights are not being sprayed by insecticide due to lack of funding.
The side walks are not being kept clean and free of weeds , The Councillors of the specific wards (Ward 48 specifically) have been contacted numerous times to address this. The trees on the side walks are not being pruned and trimmed on a regular basis. This is not only a unsightly, but also becomes a safety issue. Burglars and thugs would often hide in these over grown areas. The trees' ,on side walks, over grown branches are handing so low that one have to drive on the wrong side of the road (especially with SUV's) to avoid hitting the branches A specific example of this is Barbet Road in Rooihuiskraal.
Tshwane apparently reached an agreement with Afriforum to do away with this charge from 2018 I think. Afriforum boasted about this on the facebook pages. Still this appear on our bills every month.
Power & Water
Centurion areas never experienced power outages (not Eskom related) every now and then an area in Centurion is without power, either a power cable is faulty or a substation would trip. The Councillors for these areas are doing a great job in communicating progress in resolving issues, but this is not good enough. Included in our monthly payment is security of supply, if you have as a municipality have installed poor infrastructure or its not maintained properly, then give us a discount. Alternatively allow residents to install PV panels to power to the grid.
I think most people in Tshwane understand that there is a backlog in maintenance and other matters that Tshwane management have to deal with.
STOP BILLING RESIDENTS FOR STUFF THAT YOU DONT DO. THAT IS CALLED FRAUD.
There are a few things that I have seen major improvement on, but others like traffic control and the upkeep of certain roads do not take priority.... I live in Roodeplaat Area, and the Moloto road with all the traffic it takes is still the worst part of my day.
You risk your life driving on it. Taxi's do just what they want, speeding and overtaking on the left in the emergency lane, and the Putco busses that try to either run over you or push you off the road. Speed limit of 80 on that road does not mean a thing!
I also want to thank Tshwane for cleaning up and looking like a Capital city again. The CBD doesn't look like the eyesore it used to be.
