City to spend over R4 million upgrading gravel roads
About R4 million has been set aside by eThekwini Municipality for the construction of 3.6 kilometres of road in the eNgonyameni area in uMlazi.

The announcement was made by eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda, who visited the area on 7 November as part of the Public Participation Programme (Masakhane). A sod-turning event was also held as the Mayor officially handed over the project to the community and contractors.

The roads that comprise the 3.6 kilometre stretch of low volume gravel road that will be upgraded include TRK 84913, TRK 84914and TRK 121998.

Mayor Kaunda said rural areas often experienced a backlog in terms of service delivery but emphasised that through the District Development Model, all that will change. “The model sees all three spheres of government working collectively towards one goal,” he said.
He said the construction and tarring of the road was expected to be completed in December. “This project aims to develop the area. It will also serve as a link for local residents to access neighbouring wards and other areas of uMlazi,” Mayor Kaunda said.

He added that the construction will boost the local economy as road networks help immensely in terms of the economy and job creation. Responding to concerns from residents regarding potholes on the main road of Ngonyamani, Mayor Kaunda said talks between the City and the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Transport were at an advanced stage.

“We want all the roads that fall under the Department of Transport to be given to the Municipality to maintain.” Masandisa Mtukushe said she was very hopeful after the visit by Mayor Kaunda. “We can see that the road construction has commenced, and we are happy about that.”
