R440 million invested in road construction

CL Theko

The ANC is committed in accelerating and expanding investment in public infrastructure. We therefore welcomes the Gauteng Provincial Government's investment of R440 million on a road construction project on the K54 in Mamelodi, Tshwane east. This project includes constructing a northbound dual carriageway, two bridges over the railway line, cycle and pedestrian paths as well as taxi bays. Furthermore, the project will also involve the resurfacing of the section leading to the N4 freeway, application of road markings and the installation of traffic signals.

Upon completion, the road will serve as an important link between Mamelodi and the N4 freeway, and act as an alternative to Moloto Road. It will also improve road safety in the township as the Tsamaya road is one of the busiest arterial routes in the township. The ANC believes that the project will see the main contractor, sub-contracting work to local Small, Medium and Micro-sized Enterprises. The township communities would be beneficiaries through the various employment, training and sub-contracting opportunities, particularly for women, youth and people with disabilities.

I thank you
