The Mlungisi-Sutterheim Bridge: Uniting Communities, Inspiring Change

Residents and members of the media are invited to a Sod-Turning Ceremony at the construction site for the Eastern Cape's latest bridge on 27 January.


On 27 January 2010, construction will begin on a R15 million bridge and access road that will give residents of the Mlungisi township easy access to the area's economic centre: Stutterheim.

The bridge, which is funded by the National Treasury's Neighbourhood Development Partnership Grant and implemented by the Amathole District development agency Aspire and the Amahlathi Municipality, will halve the distance of residents' journey to Stutterheim. For generations, residents of the Mlungisi township have had to travel four kilometres on treacherous roads or walk two kilometres through a steep, slippery valley to reach Stutterheim. .

Further phases of the Mlungisi project will establish a commercial community park.

The development was initially suggested by the community. It is implemented by the Amathole District development agency, Aspire, and funded by National Treasury.
The project forms part of Aspire's Small Town Regeneration Model, which aims to encourage local economies along four main development corridors.
