THE newly opened multimillion-rand kwaMachi access roads will make it easier for the community to go to about their business.
The R60 million projects were opened by Umziwabantu Mayor Dixie Nciki and senior Department of Transport officials on Monday.

The seven-kilomere D911 and five-kilometre D912 road connects to the P327 and P59 up to the N2 that goes to Port Shepstone.

“A collaboration between the national Department of Transport, Sanral, local traditional leaders and provincial government made the realisation of the access road possible.
“The road will help community members of kwaMachi to connect simply to other villages of Harding,” said Nciki.

During construction young people from the village were trained in construction skills and how to start their own business.

Thapelo Cherane said: “I was unemployed before the start of the project, now I own a small business.”

Thembinkosi Sikhahlane was taught about construction.

Ward councillor Sithembiso Dlamini said 40 young people from the village benefited from the skills development programme during construction of the roads.
