Wedding blues

NORTHAM – Wedding planners took it upon themselves to close down Leeukoppie Road for a wedding celebration which took place on Saturday 5 November.

When concerned community members and DA-leaders asked the wedding planners to show their road closure permit, the planners couldn’t oblige, saying they have permission from the Northam Municipality as well as the Northam SAPS.

According to DA-leaders, no such permit was issued, and no one at the Police Station could be identified as the person who gave the wedding planners permission.

Closing the road without an approved traffic management plan and approved temporary road closure application is illegal, and may result in a fine being imposed.
