THE GERMISTON LAKE PRECINCT
The Germiston Lake Precinct is located in the east of Ekurhuleni and is approximately 1572ha in extent. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the mining belt and as such was established directly in response to gold mining activity.
The precinct is anchored by a large and attractive lake system with recreational parks surrounding it, as well as the country club to the west. Surrounding the lake as a core area, are the Rand Airport (south), the country club’s golf course (west), industry such as refineries (north) and residential area with a stadium to the east.
Beyond these areas, the nearby highways act as distinct barriers to the site, such as the N3 and N17 highways to the south and west, while the railway lines in the north and east also serve to physically separate Germiston from adjacent areas.
