Proposed Boksburg North provincial road: DA to submit questions about affected residents

According to Janet Semple MPL, DA Political Head for Boksburg East Constituency, the project will alleviate traffic congestion on the existing roads, accelerate the development of the aerotropolis and the Tambo-Springs Logistics hub, and unlock economic opportunities in Ekurhuleni.

However, in reply to DA questions in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, the MEC confirmed that the 36 houses situated in 14th and 15th Avenue Boksburg North were acquired for the purpose of building this road of which the construction is intended to start in the 2018/2019 financial year.

“The DA is concerned about what will happen to the residents of the 36 houses who have been residing there for over a decade,” said Semple.

She said the DA will subsequently table questions in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature to ascertain the following:

  • What will happen to the people who have been residing in these houses for many years?
  • Is there an identified place to house these people, if the answer is yes, could you indicate the place and if the answer is no, why not?
  • What steps will the department take with regards to people who have illegally occupied these 33 houses?

“The DA will continue engaging with the MEC on this matter and ensuring that proper legal actions are followed with regards to evicting these people who occupied these houses for many years.”
