The colourful and joyful sod-turning ceremony for the new bridge at the Zinniaville railway crossing in Rustenburg confirmed once again that indeed it is the fastest growing city in South Africa. The day was marked by ululation, melodious chorale music and gratitudes by speaker after speaker and community members, expressing their joy about the new bridge in that specific railway crossing spot as many car and train accidents happened there, thus precious lives being lost in the process.
