ProposalDescription: 

Basic Assessment And Water Use Authorisation Process: Proposed Upgrade Of Road P75-2 Within Umdoni And uMzumbe Local Municipalities, KwaZulu-Natal. The proposed road upgrade and realignment will consist of upgrading 15 kilometres of road P75-2 to Type 3 road standards. The start will be at the iFafa River crossing and will travel in a south westerly direction and will end at the Mtwalume River crossing. Storm water management will be included in the road upgrade. The causeway at the iFafa River Crossing will be removed and a new vehicular bridge will be built just to the north, a road realignment will be associated with this bridge

Expanded_Motivation: 

The core mandate for the Ugu District Municipality is to provide access to basic infrastructure and services. One of the challenges that the municipality is facing is addressing roads infrastructure especially in rural areas. The upgrading of road P75-2 will assist in meeting this challenge. Upgrading of roads within the Ugu District Municipality will also show progress in reaching the National Development Plan: 2030 based on creating jobs, expanding infrastructure and transforming urban and rural spaces. The IDP highlights that a road in poor condition also impacts negatively on journey speed and road safety, decreasing the accessibility or desirability of the region for business. Upgrading the road P75-2 will assist with remediating this negative aspect for at least a portion of a route within the area. The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) is a national strategy aimed at eradicating poverty, while creating jobs and providing opportunities to the previously disadvantaged communities through the provision of temporary employment opportunities. The upgrading activities of road P75-2 will provide temporary employment to individuals within close proximity of the route.
