R2.3bn allocated to transport dept
Creecy says the funds marked for the Transport Department will go into upgrading William Nicol Drive.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Finance MEC Barbara Creecy says R2.3 billion has been allocated to the Roads and Transport Department but it seems e-tolls are here to stay.
Creecy's 2016/2017 budget speech was well received in the provincial legislature today with the overall budget increasing by six percent.
She says the funds marked for the Transport Department will go into upgrading William Nicol Drive heading into Diepsloot as well as the N4 to Mamelodi in Pretoria.
Creecy however says e-tolls are not part of the budget.
