    Southdowns intersection reopened

    Fri, Oct 2, 2020

    On 30 September 2020, the Head Administrator, Mr Mpho Nawa, officially reopened the intersection in John Vorster Drive that borders Southdowns Shopping Centre, Southdowns College and Southdowns Estate. The road had been closed to repair a sinkhole at the intersection of John Vorster Drive and Karee Street.


    The general manager of Southdowns Estate, Ms Daleen Hennig, said that she was thrilled by the road being reopened. “Residents are going to be so happy that they will be able to use the road again, and it will ease the peak-hour traffic,” she added.


    Although the initial budget was R10 million, the sinkhole was repaired at a cost of R7 million and the work was completed on time in spite of the COVID-19 lockdown regulations. Mr Nawa thanked the team for their hard work and efficiency, and expressed his gratitude to the residents of Southdowns Estate for their patience.


    The operations manager of Southdowns Shopping Centre, Mr Frank Hetzel, said that they were grateful to the City for the prompt response to repair the sinkhole. He also said that reopening the road is good for trade, because the shopping complex contributes to Tshwane’s development and economy.
