LEPHALALE — The Limpopo Provincial Department of Public Works and Lephalale Municipality held hands on Thursday 2 May to officially open the access road to Lerupurupung.
This access road is part of tar road projects that have been under construction in the past two financial years.
According to the Mayor of Lephalale Municipality, Jack Maeko, his municipality is working to ensure the progressive mission of Limpopo Department of Transport gets achieved; hence they build quality access roads in villages.
“Lephalale Local Municipality is currently one of the fastest growing municipalities in the country and governs a town that has the potential to become the future hub of power generation in South Africa.
“The municipality is working hand in hand with several stakeholders to build proper infrastructure in line with the vibrant city which the democratic government of South Africa is building in Lephalale, at the heart of the Waterberg coalfield,” said Maeko.
The access road is called Khomotso Moruane Drive and is named after the late Gospel artist who died in a car accident in December 2014.
Maeko thanked the community which he says has been patient as they have had frustrations due to a gravel road, which has been misery to the commuters’ travelling.
The Khomotso Moruane Drive is a 3,2 km access road which enters Lerupurung from Ga Seleka Road, and construction costs amount R21 million.
