New feature debut in “PotholeFixGP” App

The “potholeFixGP” App has recently undergone some exciting updates, with the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport introducing a new feature to report faulty traffic signals to enhance the user experience of public members and officers alike.
Launched in 2022 and with over 7418 potholes reported, “PotholeFixGP” is an easy-to-use app that is available from Google PlayStore and Apple App stores. It currently boasts over 8300 (Android) and over 950 (IoS) downloads.

The App was launched in 2022 as part of the Department’s #SmartMobility Campaign and forms part of the Department’s commitment to leveraging new technologies to assist with the monitoring of and maintaining traffic signals, potholes, and other road defects that require urgent attention.

MEC for roads and transport Diale-Tlabela stated that following the App’s success, the Department has now introduced an additional feature that enables motorists to report faulty traffic signals on roads throughout the province.

“The added function is intended to enhance the user experience of the people of Gauteng.”

“The APP can provide a status update of the traffic signal and potholes ranging from reported, assigned to complete. It further allows for checking and verifying whether a reported traffic signal/pothole is on a municipal, provincial, or a national (SANRAL) road”, said the MEC

MEC Diale-Tlabela added that the department was encouraged by the rising numbers of downloads.

“The information was important as it provides the Department with insight into maintenance challenges on province’s roads and assists with better planning on resource deployment,” MEC Tlabela concludes.

“PotholeFixGP” serves to build relationships with motorists/road users, so they become the eyes and ears of the Department in keeping road infrastructure conditions conducive for a safe and pleasant driving experience.

The Department urges Gauteng residents to download the app and report road maintenance issues that need.
