The Rustenburg Local Municipality has in the past few days been experiencing challenges in the removal of refuse in some of its areas within its wards, particularly in the CBD and sub-urban areas.

To mitigate and deal with this challenge effectively, the municipality has embarked on the program of effective refuse removal, including demarcation of refuse removal sites, from the 10th October 2016, as per the attached detailed notices here below, namely;

1.  Demarcation of refuse removal sites


Please be advised that an urgent water supply interruption is scheduled for tomorrow tentatively from 6am till 4pm to repair this long outstanding leak on the 315mm pipeline supplying water to the following areas; Azalea Park,  Safari x8,  Cashan x12, 13, 19, 20 Water Fall East and Safari x8.



There are number of trenches which were left open around the CBD area. Such open trenches are a serious concern for both the municipality and the community. Rustenburg Local Municipality has effectively from the previous week embarked on a programme to close those trenches, and the programme shall continue for the next 3 weeks.

New state of the art bridge for Rustenburg

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.
