ProposalDescription: 

The applicant (Umshwathi Local Municipality) proposes to extend the existing Gwala Road to a type 7A local road. The proposed extension route (namely Road A and Road B) transverses three watercourses therefore, the applicant proposes to construct box culvert structures at each stream crossing point to allow for the natural flow of water within the watercourse. Road A: is 700m in length and the start point is off OL001925 while Road B: is 850m in length and ends at D1620.

Expanded_Motivation: 

There is no formal crossing at the water crossing point and therefore the community does not have access to public transport in the area as a result of in-improved roads by the local municipality. The proposed activity of extending the existing road as well the constructing adequate structures at various crossing points lays the foundation for further development opportunities, thus leading to the socio-economic development of the community. Development in this area is of high priority, and the proposed construction activities can be considered the first step towards uplifting the community.The proposed development project will provide infrastructure as well as the environmental sustainability by rehabilitating the area which has been infested by alien invasive plant species, while providing access for the community. The community will have access to public transport and schools. No dwellings will be relocated as the existing track does not transverse any properties or infringe on the rights of the residents.
