George Municipality says Darling Street has been closed to traffic

Road users entering Caledon Street from Darling Street have been ignoring the direction from the flag person.  This is a serious safety concern, and as such the contractor has closed Darling Street. 

"'Residents Only' signage has been put up to indicate this to all road users," described George Municipality spokesperson, Chantel Edwards-Klose.

"The road reserve used by residents for gaining access to their properties will be kept open. 

"We urge all residents and road users to please be aware of the direction of traffic at all times and to allow the flag personnel to direct the flow of traffic."
