City of Joburg conducts IDP feedback sessions in Region E Print E-mail
03 November 2017

The City of Johannesburg has been conducting a series of Integrated Development Plan (IDP) engagement and feedback sessions in Region E to give progress report on the developments and other matters raised by community on service delivery.

These sessions were led by Cllr Nico de Jager, the Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Environment and Infrastructure Services in the City of Johannesburg.

The engagement session gave the community an opportunity to engage with the City's leadership on service delivery issues and get the feedback on infrastructure developments, repairs and maintenance. The IDP feedback sessions took place in areas like Alexandra, Sandringham, Sandton and Eastbank.

Regional Director of Region E Liziwe Makoro gave a progress report on the infrastructure developments and service delivery. She said R20 million has been budgeted over three years for resurfacing of the roads: Nancy Ndamase Street, Siyaphumla Street and Oliver Tambo Street in Klipfontein View (Ward 32).

The City of Johannesburg has also fixed more 120 000 potholes over the past year, upgrading 51 informal settlements and increasing Pikitup cleaning services in the informal settlements.

The City is also introducing the third phase of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system to make it easier for many residents of the areas such as Orange Grove, Highland North, Norwood, Balfour Park, Alexandra, Bramley and Kew in Region E to connect to economic opportunities.

The Rea Vaya stations are being built along Louis Botha Avenue between Hillbrow, Alexandra and Sandton. The BRT expansion will contribute significantly to the movement of the residents of the Region E who work and live in the City of Johannesburg.

The construction of Orchard Clinic in Ward 74 will resume this month to complete a new state-of-the-art clinic that is being built as part of the Louis Botha Corridors of Freedom Development in Orange Grove with the intention of providing improved access and better quality service.

She said the R45 million health centre which will have 18 consultation rooms in a bid to improve the delivery of comprehensive primary health care in the area. The new clinic is to be built in line with the National Health Core Standards requirements and will also accommodate the Environmental Health Services. It is set to be completed earlier next year.

Residents also raised concerns about the visibility of JMPD in the wards 72, 73, 74 and 81 and the increasing number of the informal settlements in areas like Kew, Lombardy West and Bramley.

MMC De Jager said: "The City has committed to doing all it can to increase crime prevention efforts, with a focus on increased visible policing, in order to create a safe city for residents. The City has recruited 1 500 JMPD additional officers recently who will be deployed to the streets of Johannesburg. It's part of the City's promise earlier in the year to increase police visibility, especially at crime hotspots."
