Snake Road Officially Reopened

The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport in conjunction with the City of Ekurhuleni officially reopened Snake Road on Monday, 5 October 2020.

Snake Road has been closed since November 2019 after a sinkhole formed. Gauteng Road and Transport Acting Deputy Director-General Victor Phala said COVID-19 delayed the completion of the project as it was planned to be completed within five months.

The City’s MMC for Infrastructure Services, Cllr Masele Madihlaba, applauded the good work done by the teams from the City and province. “As the City, we are very excited to finally see the completion of this project and this road opening will surely ease the traffic congestion in Benoni CBD,” MMC Madihlaba said.

MEC for Roads and Transport Jacob Mamabolo emphasised the importance of roads and movement of goods to the economy.

“Without road and transport infrastructure we won’t have the economy to talk about, and we will continue working hand in hand with the City of Ekurhuleni to ensure that we continue to build roads to nourish the economy of Gauteng.”
