The pictures below are glaring examples of what a wasteful failure the netting has been ........
|Nets being re-erected on 2018.01.17 with what's left of the|
previous ones in the foreground
|Five days later on 2018.01.22 what's left of of the nets at the|
same place as the above scene after a gale

exposed in the same place
Sand being removed from the road in January 2017:
It was then dumped in the nearby Witsands carpark making double work because it had to be removed from there. The ironical part of the second picture is that some of the newly erect nets next to the road (February 2018) are beside naturally grown Port Jackson, which the council has so far flatly refused to plant to stabilize the Witsands dunes at a fraction of the cost of nets and earth moving equipment.
|Cape Argus story - not one of the nets shown still exist|
a Consumer Watchdog who is
also a Cape Town ratepayer.
Worse still ; blowing millions; money wasting again; the proof
