Metro invites gated roads proposals

Gated public roads in the spotlight.

Ekurhuleni residents and business people have the opportunity to submit proposals for the establishment of safe gated communities that do not infringe on the public’s freedom of movement.

Community members have until November 25 to submit proposals, as part of the metro’s response to a flood of requests for restricting access to public roads.

It has also been noted that some roads in the metro are illegally closed, in some cases using extreme measures that also deny entry to emergency services and the police.

Proposals for gated communities should consider:

• Methods that can be implemented without infringing on the public’s right to freedom of movement while equally ensuring the safety and security of residents.

• Different ways of promoting mobility, integration, social inclusiveness and township functionality.

• Reducing unnecessarily long travelling distances caused by road closures.

Proposals and presentations should be made in writing and emailed to [email protected] and [email protected] or hand-delivered to any customer care centre in Ekurhuleni.

A public participation event addressing the issue will take place on Thursday from 9am to 3.30pm at the Germiston City Hall in President Street in the CBD.
