The Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) has allocated a budget of R99 million to the improvement of roads infrastructure in Region B as part of the seven regions resurfacing programme.
The City of Johannesburg began the roll-out of its R365-million work to upgrade the Soweto Freeway, M1 and M2 highways to improve mobility on the municipal roads on 6 August 2015.
The JRA spent over R65 million in the construction of the Naledi-Protea Bridge in Soweto, Region D linking Modutlwa and Motingtinyane Streets in Naledi with Mdlalose Street in Protea North. The new bridge will ease mobility between the two communities.
The Johannesburg Roads Agency is embarking on an 8 month rehabilitation project for Emmarentia Dam at a cost of R25 million. The dam is located on the Westdene spruit which is a tributary of the Juskei River and is a popular recreational venue for the residents of Joburg.
