Street Women Are More Dependable

Women are fast becoming the choice of road works production, despite tough, dirty conditions and long hours standing amongst traffic and heavy machinery. According to a spokesperson for the Municipality, whilst the re-habillitation of Windhoek's streets are going full steam ahead, the presence of women being employed as 'flaggers' to control and regulate traffic flow at the area's of construction are becoming more visible, and are often seen standing waving their flags, to form a buffer between busy traffic intersections and the roadwork activities around them.
