MakhuraTimesLive reports that Gauteng Premier David Makhura has condemned the series of delays in the inquiry into the collapse of the Grayston bridge in Sandton, northern Johannesburg.  

Two people were killed and 19 injured when the bridge over the M1 freeway and Grayston interchange collapsed on 14 October 2015.  The inquiry into the cause of the collapse was set up by the Department of Labour.  The first sitting inquiry was on 7 July last year and many subsequent hearings have been postponed several times.  The next hearing will be held in July 2018.  Makhura said it was "completely unacceptable" that, two years after the collapse, there were still no answers and accountability had not been assigned.  Affected families had complained bitterly about the delay, he indicated.
