‘Plain, ‘Litsha to benefit via new budget

2018-06-14 06:01

This is how the City of Cape Town’s Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) will spend the bulk of its capital budget over the next three financial years.

This will be on the provision of new housing opportunities, on new roads to relieve traffic congestion, and on infrastructure for the roll-out of the MyCiTi bus service to Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha­.

The TDA’s budget for the next financial year, starting on Monday 1 July, amounts to R5.34bn.

Of this, around R1.77bn is budgeted for projects related to housing developments, roads and public transport infrastructure.

“Most of the capital projects are located within the city’s urban inner core.

“This is in line with the City’s revised Municipal Spatial Development Framework which focuses on inward growth and investment­.

“Thus, the City will keep on investing in maintaining and upgrading existing infrastructure, while at the same time prioritising public investment in an urban inner core as stipulated by the Built Environment Performance Plan,” says Mayco member for transport and urban development, Brett Herron.

The TDA will spend R2.1bn on the development of new housing opportunities over the next three financial years, with R590m being budgeted for 2018/19 alone. The 2018/19 budget is allocated to 36 housing developments which are either in the planning phase, already underway, or in the process of being finalised.

These housing projects are situated in Nyanga, Atlantis, Heideveld, Fisantekraal, Grassy Park, Somerset West, Scottsdene, Hangberg, Durbanville, Bardale, Belhar, Delft, Gugulethu, Manenberg, Strand, Blue Downs, Dido Valley, Macassar, Harare, Imizamo Yethu, Valhalla Park, Masiphumelele, Brown’s Farms, Beacon Valley, Salt River, Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, Langa, Vrygrond, Retreat, Ottery and Philippi, among others. The bulk of the housing opportunities will be developed on well-located land close to public transport, jobs, government services and public amenities.

To fund the acquisition of additional well-located land parcels for future housing projects, the TDA has budgeted R155m for the acquisition of land in the next financial year.

The TDA is committed to improving and expanding transport options to residents, Herron says.

“We recently signed an agreement with the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa and the Western Cape Provincial Government to train and jointly fund a dedicated enforcement unit to focus on the safety and security of Metrorail commuters and infrastructure­.

“About 17% of commuters rely on minibus taxis. Thus, we are investing in new minibus taxi facilities in Dunoon and Masiphumelele, and we are refurbishing others with covered walkways and ablution facilities,” Herron says.

“For those using private vehicles, we are well aware of the congestion on our roads, the frustration this causes, its impact on our city’s productivity and residents’ quality of life.”

As far as congestion relief is concerned, the TDA has allocated R481m over the next three financial years for the construction of new road infrastructure in congestion hotspots.

“Coupled with these infrastructure projects, we need residents to work with us by making use of public transport as far as possible, and for private business to implement flexible working hours so that we can divert traffic away from our road network during the peak hour periods,” Herron says.

Commuters will experience some financial relief, as on-street parking bay tariffs are set to stay the same for the next financial year. In addition, R816m is budgeted for the required infrastructure for the roll-out of Phase 2A of the MyCiTi service between Mitchell’s Plain, Khayelitsha, Claremont and Wynberg. This money will be spent over the next three financial years on the upgrade of Stock Road in Philippi and Jan Smuts Drive (M17) in Plumstead, and on the construction of new bus depots. Once fully rolled out and implemented, Phase 2A will serve more than 1.4 million commuters from the Metro South-east.
