Damage on the Dip

During the recent flooding Port Elizabeth endured the road at the 3rd Avenue Dip was damaged which led to its closure.  This in turn led to major traffic disruptions on the William Moffet Expressway, specially during morning traffic.  The  Damselfly uses the Dip to get to both her work and the Kidz's school and her regular 20 minute drive took her over an hour with the road closure.  On Sunday I took a walk down to the low water bridge to have a look at the damage.  From the looks of it the contractors were well on their way with the repair job and surprisingly yesterday (Tuesday) it was reopened.  What an awesome job done by the municipality to get done so quickly.  In the picture you can also see that the Baakens River is still running very strong as well.
