First new Joburg highway in the works since the 1970s
Gauteng finance MEC Barbara Creecy has announced the start of the process to develop the new PWV 15, East-West Highway. The first since the 1970s.
The highway will help avoid congestion at the Gillooly's interchange.
Creecy delivered the Gauteng budget for 2018-19 on Tuesday. The department of roads and transport will receive R16.2bn of the R31.8bn budget that has been set aside for infrastructure over the medium term.
MEC at Roads And Transport Gauteng, Ismail Vadi says the development makes economic sense.
It is a priority for us. Of course the PW 14 is also important as any other proposed freeway development in our total network plan. This one I think makes economic sense.Ismail Vadi, MEC at Roads And Transport Gauteng
702 Traffic reporter Aki Anastasiou thinks the highway will not make a difference.
There is lots of PWV highways that have been proposed, many of them don't come to fruition. I don't think this one is going to make a huge difference, I think they should rather be focusing on the PWV 14 and the 13 which run the other way which will take a lot pressure off the Gillooly's interchange.Aki Anastasiou, 702 Traffic reporter
