Dear Editor,

I am convinced the National Works Agency (NWA), as overseers of the road construction, are bereft of thinkers.

To solve the problem of motorists crossing two lanes on exiting the Total Service Station in Manor Park to go north, they have decided to construct a median. But, instead of stopping just above that particular exit, they, by excavation, are intending to go beyond the northernmost exit. It, therefore, means all traffic exiting Manor Park will have to go down to the Olivier Road intersection and make a U-turn to proceed north.

Our original suggestion was, on exiting the northernmost access point at Upper Manor Park, one would have sufficient space to merge into the right lane in order to use the filter and go about our business.

Making a U-turn at the light won't be a seamless procedure for most vehicles, and could involve some reversing. What will this result in? I think total chaos!
Such ridiculous planning looks like performances better suited in a big circus and will not enhance smooth traffic flow in the area.
