Service delivery should be logged through the available City of Johannesburg services platforms. If you are a paying BNCF member, we can keep track of these faults through reference numbers and follow up with our 102 Ward councilor for escalations. There are many ways to log a fault, but here are the tried-and-tested ways that have prov-
en to be most effective:
Joburg Water – Email firstname.lastname@example.org with location of the fault (street address or street intersections) and include nature of fault if applicable (e.g. sewer or fresh water etc.). Twitter: @JHBWater
Pikitup – Call 0860JOBURG – Option 4 (for clearing up illegal dumping or requests for new bins etc.). Twitter: @CleanerJoburg
City Parks – Call 0860JOBURG – Option 0 (for grass cutting in parks, fixing signs etc.). Twitter: @JoburgParksZoo
Joburg Roads Agency – Email email@example.com with location of the fault and nature of fault, e.g.. potholes, street signs knocked over etc. Be sure to include a picture, as plain text emails may automatically go to their spam folder. Twitter: @MyJRA
In each of these cases, you will be given a reference number. If logging via email, you should receive an email response with a reference number. We have experienced good turn-around times for City Power and JRA for fixing potholes. For leaking pipes that adjoin a road, JW is quick to dig up part of the road and fix the leak; however, due to slow internal City processes, it takes a long time for JRA to return to the site to re-tar the road. BNCF keeps track of these cases and escalates constantly with the ward councilor. Sometimes, these cases may take months to resolve.
