K56 to change community lifestyle- 09 May 2012
THE proposed K56 road has sparked anger among the Fourways community who fear the road will jeopardise the area’s wetlands and destroy the R800 million horse industry.
As reported in the Review, week ending 20 April, the K56, would link Fourways to Midrand cutting through wetlands and 40 properties.
With debates on e-tolling rife, roads have taken centre stage in the news and the proposed K56 road is being opposed on every front by community members.
Chairman of the Glenferness Residents Association, Chris de Villiers said the community members had responded to the road with, “shock, anger and despair” and were concerned the road would destruct their homes, livelihoods, jobs and a school.
“As residents we will have no benefits from the road whatsoever. The developments that are promoting this road in Dainfern, Crowthorne and Waterfall will be the only ones that benefit the developments on either side.”
