The Executive Mayor, Geoffrey Makhubo accompanied by Members of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Transport, Cllr Nonhlanhla Makhuba and Development Planning Cllr. Lawrence Khoza, were at an oversight tour of Rea Vaya Phase 1C (a) route in Wynberg. The oversight tour forms part of the October Transport Month activities as well as part of the Executive Mayor’s monitoring and evaluation responsibilities.
The Rea Vaya Phase 1C (a), is a new route that will connect Phase 1A and 1B from the Joburg CBD to Alexandra and Sandton. The route is currently under construction and it is due for completion in 2021.
“The stopping of service delivery projects by the Business Forums will not be tolerated as it delays the completion of projects and the provision of much-needed service to the people of our city. Business Forums should follow proper channels to raise their grievances regarding any City-led projects”, warned Makhubo.
This project will also see the construction of new BRT lanes and an underground station with associated structures, and bulk earthworks.
