City’s R91 million Imizamo Yethu redevelopment programme completed<p>​</p><span><p>The rebuilding and redevelopment of Imizamo Yethu has been under way for a number of years following a fire in 2017. With a cost of approximately R91 million, the City's redevelopment project could help to mitigate the impact of fires in the area due to enhanced access for emergency services and fire breaks. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>'It is pleasing to see this project completed. I am satisfied with what I have seen here today. Bulk earthworks for the formal housing project have been completed and the retaining walls constructed. The stormwater, water and sewer network construction has been done. A greenbelt walkway has been constructed over the bulk water network to protect the infrastructure and the roads and road surfaces have also been completed. Access for vehicular circulation in and around the greater area has been improved. In addition, the improved access has also enabled the City to enhance basic delivery of services to the area.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure></span><p>'This project, as are all City projects, is dependent on the support and cooperation of the community.
