Joburg gets R30bn for infrastructure
Johannesburg – The City of Johannesburg has budgeted R30bn for infrastructure development for the next three years, Mayor Parks Tau said on Thursday.
This would form part of an ambitious public transportation development programme dubbed “freedom corridors”, he said in his state of the city address at Wits.
“Over the decade, we will introduce transport corridors connecting strategic nodes through an affordable and accessible mass public transit that includes both bus and passenger rail,” said Tau.
He said mixed income housing, schools, offices and community facilities would be erected along the corridors.
This would eradicate previous settlement patterns, as well as slow down the uncontrolled spread of squatter camps around the city.
“Johannesburg will lead in South Africa and in Africa to link transport development with high density housing and create viable, sustainable and integrated communities,” said Tau.
New mall planned for Joburg CBD
Johannesburg – The big hole being dug in Newtown is the start of a R1.2bn retail and office development incorporating some of Johannesburg’s most historic buildings, it was reported on Monday.
The hole was one of the biggest dug in the inner city since the construction of the Carlton Centre, The Star reported.
It was that big to accommodate the underground parking which would be part of the new, 30,000sq m Newtown Junction, which was being built among heritage buildings, including the historic potato shed.
The project coincided with the revamp and extension of the Market Theatre precinct and was expected to draw in additional 5 000 people and 2 500 cars to the central business district.
The Star reported that the centre would be linked to the upgraded theatre precinct, so theatregoers would be able to walk over the railway lines on refurbished original pedestrian bridges to dine and shop after shows.
There will be major investment into infrastructure in the country which will change rural communities to give them access to technology that cities have. Changes will happen quickly and in turn will change education in our country.”
Please Pray For:
- Continuation of Investments into South Africa
- Godly Managment of these Projects
- Discernment of God in the heart of believers
Let us then raise the standard in Prayer
Isa. 59:19; ’ When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” NKJV
