The Triangle Industrial CID held its 25th joint operation on the 23 March 2017. A total amount of 29 fines were issued and two structures were demolished on the public open space leading from Uranium Street. A further 12 “Stop and Search” were done and 9 verbal warnings were given for illegal railway crossing.

An article was placed in the Tyger Burger on the 28 September 2016.

In October 2016 there was an increase of robberies on the public open space leading from Uranium Street.
From the 1 November 2016 a security officer was deployed at the gate and turnstile with the CID’s trailer.
To date no further robberies were reported on the public open space.

Vehicles and taxis are still speeding and driving towards oncoming traffic in Brug Street in peak hour towards the intersection of Peter Barlow Road. Please see underlying photograph that has been brought to the attention of Traffic Services.

It would kindly be appreciated if the companies could inform their employees about the danger of overtaking on a barrier line as you are not only putting your own life at risk, but also the lives of other road users and pedestrians.
