Municipality to present GO!Durban plans to community

2017-03-21 06:02

THE eThekwini Municipality is to hold a community meeting to present the plans and progress for GO!Durban, the city’s new integrated rapid public transport network.
The meeting will be held in Ward 22 on Saturday, March 18 from 10 am to 12 pm at the Shembe Community Hall in 18th Avenue, Clernaville.

The ward councillor and officials of the eThekwini Transport Authority will host the engagement in this ward, which is affected by the construction of the dedicated bus lane on the first route of GO!Durban, which runs from Bridge City in KwaMashu to the Pinetown CBD.

Another meeting to present the plans and progress for GO!Durban will be held in Ward 54 on Sunday, March 19 from 10am to noon in the Inanda Newtown C hall, at C795 Umshado Road, Section C.

The new GO!Durban public transport network will provide a safer, more efficient and affordable public transport system for all the people of the city, linking areas and places that have in the past been difficult to access through divisive urban planning.
“We urge residents, business owners, workers and stakeholders in this ward to attend the meeting to find out more about GO!Durban and how it will ultimately benefit us all,” said eThekwini Municipality Mayor Zandile Gumede.
“It is also important that stakeholders learn about empowerment opportunities that are available in terms of contracts, employment and skills’ development that are being provided.
“This engagement is one way in which we can keep citizens updated on the work we are doing. People attending will be able to question, raise concerns and resolve issues, where possible, with our officials from the project, who will be in attendance. 

“We invite our citizens to work with us as we move forward. This is one of the most significant infrastructural projects to be undertaken by the city and it goes a long way to help make our city one of Africa’s most caring and liveable cities,” she said. — Supplied.
