THE rail line and reserve through Hillcrest is a precious open space used by walkers with their dogs, and cyclists, and is one of the few open spaces left in the busy “city of Hillcrest”.

Maintenance of the reserve is of vital importance and is done by Chris Harburn of Giba Gorge, who sponsors this project and the Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association (KHBA) provides the manpower and the tools. Hard at work maintaining the reserve is Vukani Cele and Vusi Mkhize. They also remove invasive alien plants and pick up litter to ensure the line remains pristine. They receive loads of compliments from cyclists and walkers.

The train that runs to Inchanga every last Sunday of the month is frequented by tourists and the work being done on the rail reserve can only enhance their travel experience.

Marge Mitchell of KHBA said the association is grateful to Harburn for his support and interest.

“Without his sponsorship, the project would not be a success.”
