WA 10 Sewer System Upgrade Project in Ward 38 not budgeted for

November 4, 2015

Residents in Brackenhurst and Brackendowns in Ward 38 are at risk of contracting diseases due to constant sewerage overflows in the area. The WA 10 Sewer System Upgrade Project has been halted for the last two years because the Ekurhuleni Metro claims that this project, which is meant to be one of Ward 38’s priority projects, was not budgeted for. It is unacceptable that the health of community members and children are put at risk because the metro fails to budget for high priority projects. The DA will therefore be petitioning the Ekurhuleni Metro to include the project in the 2015-2016 adjustment budget and implement the sewerage system upgrades as a matter of urgency.
