Removal of Excessive Billboards in Bedfordview



Goal: Unlimited

Date: Ongoing

4 People

We, the undersigned residents of Ekurhuleni, demand of the MMC for City Planning to urgently investigate and remove excessive Billboards.

Our roads and freeways have become littered with a profusion of colossal Hoardings and Billboards which distract and threaten the safety of motorists and are detrimental to the environment of the neighbourhood by reason of size and intensity. Moreover, a landmark architectural feature of Bedfordview, the Suspension Bridge between Riley Road and Boeing Road East, is partially obliterated by one of these hoardings.

These Billboards appear at frequent and crucial intersections on the busiest section of highway in the country; the Gilloolies Interchange. They are on our bridges, creating visual clutter and creating dangerous distraction from highway information at critical junctures. We urgently request that the Gauteng Roads Authority be consulted and these billboards be removed.

Those billboards are dangerous and not structurally sound. They pose a danger as those bridges were not designed to carry the loads the steel structures impose on them.
Remove it

We do not need or want these billboards in our suburb.
