The Kaalfontein and Mayibuye gravel roads upgrade are aligned to the City’s priorities in ensuring the advancement of pro-poor development that provides redress through the provision of services.

Makhuba said,”These roads would ensure access services and improved mobility and the construction of the Kaalfontein pedestrian bridge would form part of the City’s priority pedestrian bridge development programme that would enable the safe movement of residents in flood conditions.”
