I know Willow Quarries advertise in this magazine. Let’s see if this letter is published. It will say a lot about the publication and the integrity of its editor.

Every day I drive past the quarry in Lynnwood Road, I am almost in an accident. The road at the entrance is covered with loose stones, potholes and debris and swerving out of the way is your only option.

Unfortunately there is always a truck on the other side of the road wanting to turn into that road and swerving could result in a deadly head-on collision.

Your only alternative is to go through the potholes and possibly write off your car wheels.

This has happened a number of times to me where I narrowly avoided an accident and on two occasions damaged my car wheel. I just had to repair my wheel for R2 900.

Another problem is the trucks leaving the quarry and the stones falling from the trucks. In the past three years I have had to replace three windscreens due to falling stones.

Will anything ever be done to force Willow Quarries to take responsibility for the damages they cause? I have tried to get them to pay up, but they know it will be impossible for me to prove that they are the responsible party and therefore they don’t care.

Something will probably only be done if someone died at that intersection. I sincerely hope it’s not me or one of my family.

I think this behaviour is scandalous. Never mind the environmental issues that have been reported on many times in the past. Willow Quarries are single-handedly destroying our Bronberg and still they continue unabated.

I would like to ask people who have suffered damages due to the actions of Willow Quarries to contact me by e-mail so that we can develop a plan to bring them to book. Write to Marthinus at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
