The ANC Welcomes the R11bn for Montrose Mega City Project

PV Mogotsi

The ANC is committed to building a cohesive, sustainable and caring community with closer access to work, social amenities, including sports and recreation facilities.

We therefore applaud the Gauteng Government for committing R11 billions on developing the Montrose mega city project in Rand West municipality in Randfontein. This project will include social housing, bonded houses, RDP walk-ups and military veterans' houses, as well as schools, clinics, churches, commercial developments, urban agriculture, and the revitalisation of the railway line to ensure that people are able to travel unhindered..

More than 10000 housing are units are expected to be built upon completion of this project. The ANC Provincial Government also intends to revitalising the Rand West municipality's economy which suffered losses when mines and businesses closed down services, partly by procuring the material to build the Montrose project from business people within the area, thus contributing to creating job opportunities for the locals. This, the ANC believes, will create for the people of Montrose their own new city with all government amenities and would no longer have to travel to Randfontein for government services.

I thank you
