Cape Town - KwaDukuza Mayor, Ricardo Mthembu on Friday is set to conduct the opening of the Ballito Taxi Rank facility which is aimed to stimulate economic mobility in the central business hub.

The R 4.2 million project guarantees public transport stability in the central business hub, Ballito.

“Ballito remains one of our major contributors to the growth of our local economy therefore, this development is of commemorative value for commuters as Ballito amongst other local economic nodes inherited a poor spatial planning legacy from the government of the past”, said Mthembu in a statement.

“We recognize that efficient public transport is the backbone of any thriving economy. “Ballito is one of the economic key entry points to KwaDukuza from Durban which a number of public transport users from eThekwini municipality utilize for social and economic reasons.”
