The NMT infrastructure included the upgrade of stormwater infrastructure (as deemed necessary), the upgrading of the electrical requirements and the construction of 3 m wide universal access sidewalks on both sides of the above-mentioned streets to achieve optimal functionality and a ‘fit for purpose’ status. The project formed part of the Tembisa Urban Renewal Programme (TURP) in the City of Ekurhuleni (CoE). The project was funded through the Neighbourhood Development Partnership Grant (NDPG) guided by the Urban Network Strategy (Integration Zones) driven and funded by National Treasury under the NDPG.
