Virginia beach project begins

photoDA Councillor, Dean Macpherson conducted an oversight tour of the Virginia beach culvert project which has begun.

The project is the second phase of the Virginia circle detention pond which will see excess flood water move more easily under the Virginia airport and out to sea. Previously the existing culvert on the beach would become blocked with sea sand, resulting in costly floods. R12 million is being spent to extend the culvert 50 meters to sea which will also create a pier.

Councillor Macpherson has welcomed the infrastructure development after lobbying for the project for three years. Ultimately his vision is to see the entire Virginia beach area re-developed with restaurants, parking and play areas for children. Plans have already been submitted with a completed EIA with the councillors approval. Such a development is key for Durban North and will allow residents to once again freely use the beach as well as being an attraction for tourists. We also cannot overlook the job creation component that will encompass this project. When he took office in 2009, he promised residents that infrastructure development and job creation would be a strong focus of his. “I am proud to see this happening in projects such as this in Durban North,” said Macpherson.
