Slime green sludge overtaking the Kings Beach ponds. Ou's digging up our beach road for new buses. Developers got their grimey paws back out again on La Roche. Eish.
You might have noticed that the KB ponds look like something outta Alien at the moment. Green slime has taken over most of the surface. Turns out that during the recent rains a sewerage pipe burst and ended up pouring some nice yummy EColi into the ponds. Fail. So the algae has had a field day. The guys are onto it thankfully - it's being treated, and you'll see 2 poor ou's who obviously drew the short straws tasked with wading through it each day slowly pulling the slime out.
There's also plenty digging going on along the beach road. The buses that were bought for the 2010 Soccer World Cup - that we never used (and for which we wasted gazzilions on that stupid bus lane circus along Govan MBeki), well - the municipality have finally decided we may as well use em. Sheesh, good one guys, only taken you over 2 years to figure that out, shot! So, the new buses mean that some of the bus stops have to be revamped to be able to accommodate em. With 200 new buses on the road might mean you can even hook one to the beach. Save your petrol cash for Barney's beers instead.
You may have wondered what was going on at the corner of Standfontein and La Roche when you pass by on your way down to the beach. Turns out the developers are gonna be putting up 25 new townhouses there. Hmm, planes flying overhead, and one of the busier intersections in PE, gonna be a nice quiet spot to stay. Not. But hey, close to the beach!
