Voortrekker Road Corridor in South Africa
An allocation of approximately US $12.23m has been made in the current financial year for the Voortrekker Road Corridor reconstruction project in Cape Town, South Africa.
The funds for the construction of the Voortrekker road corridor in South Africa come from the city development grant. The construction project aims to create employment opportunities for residents in the area. Furthermore, the affordable houses will cater to workers such as nurses and teachers.
Other projects in the development grants include the water and sanitation Northern region sludge facility, plattekloof substation, rapid transport control center, Bellville wastewater treatment works facility, and the Belhar/Pentech housing scheme.
The eight metropolitan municipalities in the region will benefit from the development grant incentive to aid in the improvement of buildings and also help in job creation.
According to Johan van der Merwe, a member of the city’s mayoral committee for energy, environment, and spatial planning, the projects will be through partnerships. There will also be an improvement in the relationship between small and medium businesses due to the partnerships made.
