From ensuring clean suburbs to improving infrastructure, Steyn City’s positive impact extends well beyond its gates.

Steyn City supports the Fourways community-at-large

One of Steyn City’s goals is to benefit not only our residents, but those who live beyond our gates, too. That’s why we are always eager to support our adjacent communities – and our collaboration with Better Fourways gives us a chance to do just that.

Better Fourways was launched with an eye to encouraging community members to play an active role in cleaning up and, ultimately, revitalising their suburb. We’re doing our bit by taking part in clean up campaigns around the Fourways area; plus, from April, we have made a monthly contribution to bolster the organisation’s efforts. It’s an honour to be involved in an initiative of this nature, and we can’t wait to see the difference we make.

Through Better Fourways, we are also partnering with Turfnet to tidy up the centre island between the Indaba Hotel and our estate along Winnie Mandela Drive. Turfnet is sponsoring a tractor while our team adds extra support, relieving much of the burden for brushcutters and labourers.

No more flashing robots

In another exciting move, Steyn City is part of a new collaboration of private entities wishing to put an end to dysfunctional traffic lights. The brainchild of Ward 94 councillor David Foley, the initiative has not yet been finally concluded as David is still awaiting council approval, although all partners have reached an agreement around their roles. By allowing traffic lights along Winnie Mandela Drive, and in time, Cedar Road, to be connected to the uninterrupted power supply of businesses in the vicinity, they’ll be making the area safer for motorists and pedestrians alike, while also putting an end to snarled up traffic jams that take up valuable time and cause significant frustration for those that commute. This has been a major problem during loadshedding, causing significant interruption to the smooth flow of traffic.

K46 nearing completion

We’re also continuing to support the development of infrastructure in the area. Our contribution to the upgrade of key arterial routes has facilitated the final phase extension of the R511 to the N14 with the Rose Interchange, and the final stretch from Diepsloot Mall to the highway, to be significantly progressed. These upgrades will greatly improve connections between Johannesburg, Centurion and Pretoria, in turn boosting our strategic position while making the commute between these key areas far smoother.
