Construction at the Conradie Better Living Model Project officially commences this month, according to provincial transport and public works minister Bonginkosi Madikizela.

“This critical redress will be achieved by enabling and making available well-located state-owned land for affordable, integrated residentially-led development by the private sector,” he said in a statement.
