Roads and ablution facilities for ward 15
​Workers busy at a road construction site in Empola.
THE City has intensified its effort to develop infrastructure and better the lives of the people living in rural areas. The approval of several development projects for ward 15 and neighbouring areas attests to this.

The tarring of two roads in Empola is currently underway. This project commenced in November last year and is expected to be completed in August. Ward 15 Councillor Sifiso Ngcobo said the roads will be completed with pavements, road markings and installation of storm water drainage pipes.

Tarring of roads will improve safety and ease the traffic flow in the area. He said the projects has created 42 short term employment. “Seven ablution facilities complete with taps, showers, toilets and sinks for washing clothes have also been installedin different parts of theinformal settlement of iTshelimnyama.

There is also a 450 metres sidewalk that has been constructed near an early childhood development centre and primary school to reduce accidents as many children use the road,” he said. Councillor Ngcobo said about R150 000 has been approved to fence the reservoir dam that is supplying KwaNdengezi, Tshelimnyama and Emansenseni areas with water. “There was a great concern among residents about children who were using the area around the dam as a playground. Residents wanted to make sure that the children are safe and there will be no damages to the dam as this may cause disruptions to water supply in the future,” he said.
