Over a number of years the community of ward 1 Emaxesibeni has been crossing the river from Lower to Upper Brooksneck with no road that cuts across to get to the other side.  “Finally the community of ward 1 sees the dawn of a well-structured paved bridge after tragic experiences of deaths of community members who were swept into the river trying to cross over” says councillor Hem of ward 1. The bridge amounts to R3 466 121.55 with an investment of R219 245.00 in labour, creating a total of 21 jobs to the residing community of ward 1.
