DAM(N)!: A massive pool of water in the middle of a street in Alrode South.
ALRODE, Alberton’s economic hub, is suffering from lack of maintenance and care.
The industrial area is in dire need of some tender loving care, as the roads are not only falling apart, but flooding, and many parts seem to be used (like many places nowadays) as a rubbish dump.

WHAT A DUMP: A piece of ground just off a sidewalk in Alrode, where large amounts of rubbish are strewn about. WATER WATER EVERYWHERE: Water fills the pothole-ridden roads in Alrode. DOWN THE DRAIN: One would never know we are experiencing severe water shortages when one sees at hoses and taps running and wasting water for long periods of time. IT JUST KEEPS FLOWING: Water runs down the streets of Alrode. DANGER: Massive potholes cover large portions of the streets in Alrode and, with the water that is being wasted, these holes fill up, making them more difficult to spot, causing a greater danger for vehicles and pedestrians.
