Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality Welcomes the Upgrade of the Main Road P8/3 from Gravel to Blacktop between km 17.560 and km 24.221, this is the Road that Passes by the Municipality Offices

Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality Mayor Cllr Sindisiwe Msomi mentioned that this has increasingly manifested itself through road failure, more potholes, increased vehicle operating costs, longer journey times, higher transaction and logistic costs, reduced productivity, reduced global competitiveness and high levels of public discontent.

This road P8/3 linking the community with the town of Creighton, community members say the road is dangerous because it is narrow and has potholes.

“It is within this context that as the municipality working together with department of transport will continue to streamline, consolidate, and elevate the management of strategic partnerships and inter-governmental relations to improve co-ordination and collaboration between the province, municipality and other social partners,” she said.

This will support integrated planning and ensure a more efficient delivery of services. Notwithstanding transport infrastructure financing and other challenges, the need to maintain the primary road network and keep it at appropriate levels will continue to be one of the most important strategic focus areas especially when the municipality is faced with significant maintenance backlogs, Mayor Msomi said.
