Provincial Planning and Treasury has approved expenditure totalling R70 million by the Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC) in Walmer Township.

ECDC has been handed the task of implementing province’s Integrated Infrastructure Programme.

R50 million has been allocated to Walmer for electricity “to improve on the capacity of the transformers that keep overloading due to illegal connections”.

An additional R20 million has been approved for stormwater in Walmer Township “to formalise and segment the storm drains traversing Walmer in order to avoid flooding of the area and the airport”.

A total of R150 million has also been approved for Makana, with R50 million for the second year of a water supply intervention and R100 million over at least two years for an intervention in the sewerage system. - MetroMinutes.
