R15m for electricity

2010-09-15 23:11

Johannesburg - The Rustenburg municipality, in North West, will use R15m to electrify 1 000 houses at the Freedom Park informal settlement, spokesperson Butler Matlapeng said on Wednesday.

He said project site was handed over to the contractor on Wednesday.

"The project comprises the first 1 000 houses to be electrified at a cost not less R12m. The R3.8m is for the erection of the electricity supply power station, the first in Freedom Park."

He said the project would start on September 20, when the first 15 locals would be employed for the construction of the electricity supply power station.

An unconfirmed number of locals would be employed later for trench-digging once the house connections started.

The project was expected to be complete by April.

"The remaining 1 000 houses that could not be electrified due to budgetary constraints will be catered for in the next financial year, starting in June," he said.
