Bridge over troubled waters

It is encouraging how the Gauteng public, and particularly the civil engineering community, have come together to lament the collapse of the temporary structure at the Grayston interchange that killed two people. It was also pleasing to note the cooperation between the City of Johannesburg, Gautrain, Metrobus, Putco and Uber to help relieve the traffic congestion around the interchange.
