IVORY PARK PROJECTS TO BUILD A VIBRANT INTEGRATED COMMUNITY

The City of Johannesburg Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Development Planning, Councillor Eunice Mgcina, along with Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) CEO, Mr. Themba Mathibe, conducted an oversight visit to two capital infrastructure projects in Ivory Park, Region A.

The transformation of Ivory Park into a vibrant integrated community is central to the principles of the City of Johannesburg’s Growth and Development Strategy (GDS) to facilitate social mobility and settlement restructuring.

The Greater Ivory Park region is regarded as one of the most densely populated areas within the region. The City’s development objective is to transform the area to ensure its socio-economic integration, consolidation and long-term sustainability.

As the infrastructure arm of the City of Johannesburg, the Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) has been spearheading the implementation of various projects as part of the Ivory Park Urban Development Framework (UDF).

The oversight visit took place on Thursday, 04 July, to check on progress on capital development underway. These projects are the upgrading of the Kopanong Sport Complex, and the construction of the new state-of-the-art Hikhensile Clinic.

WORKS CONTINUE ON KOPANONG SPORTS COMPLEX

The Kopanong Sports Complex is set to undergo a remarkable transformation, encompassing a multitude of enhancements aimed at enriching the lives of residents and visitors alike.

This transformative initiative promises to breathe new life into the area and also underscores the JDA’s commitment to fostering equitable, sustainable, and resilient communities.

Once completed, Kopanong Sports Complex will feature state-of-the-art rugby and soccer fields, tennis, basketball, and netball courts, modern amenities such as grandstands, a guardhouse, and drinking fountains, a clubhouse and multisport building and extensive landscaping, fencing, and street art installations.

HIKHENSILE CLINIC COMMENCES FOLLOWING ENGAGEMENT WITH SMMEs

The new Hikhensile Clinic is being implemented to meet the City of Johannesburg’s Health Department’s quality standards. It will be able to accommodate larger volumes of patients and provide a wider range of services.

The implementation of the facility is on track following the MMC’s and CEO’s engagement with the local SMMEs and labours within the community during the oversight. The engagement sought to identify issues that could lead to potential delays and implement solutions to ensure the project stays on schedule.

The clinic’s construction, which the JDA is undertaking on behalf of the city’s Health Department, will be implemented in two phases. Phase 1 will include the construction of a single-story structure featuring six consultation rooms, a counselling room, a vital room, a doctor’s room, and a social worker room, as well as external works, parking, paving, and all necessary electrical and mechanical works.

“It is our objective to monitor the project’s progress, address concerns, and gather feedback throughout the construction process to ensure the completion of the project,” stated MMC Mgcina.

The Kopanong Sports Complex and Hikhensile Clinic projects will supplement the various developments that the JDA has been implementing in the region, including the Kaalfontein Multipurpose Centre and the Ivory Park Swimming Pool Complex.
