MEC Motlhabane expresses satisfaction with the construction of Kgomotso Registering authority

North West motorists living on the borders of the Province and Northern Cape are expected to receive vehicle registering services sooner than the time frame scheduled upon appointment of the contractor for the construction of the Kgomotso Registering Authority.

This follows a mammoth progress registered on the first phase of the construction at the registering authority site which is estimated at 70 percent completion already.

On his site visit, Community Safety and Transport Management MEC, Dr Mpho Motlhabane said the progress is overwhelmingly impressive as he committed to putting more pressure on the department for the second phase of the project to begin in earnest too.

"The progress registered here is remarkable. We need contractors who are service delivery orientated like the one who’s responsible for this project. The quicker you complete this project the sooner our people start to get services on their Province. Most of our people this side ends up registering their vehicles in Northern Cape because of lack of services.

With this eminent completion, motorists will now enjoy government services at their door step and this is service delivery at its best,” said Motlhabane.

The R2,6 million construction project has created 11 permanently contracted job opportunities for the duration of the project. All of whom are recruited from Kgomotso village in the Greater Taung Local Municipality.

Over 40 unemployed people benefited from this project, particularly the women and young people who got temporary jobs on sub-contracting basis.

The Registering Authority is expected to benefit communities from more than 20 villages surrounding the Kgomotso village with an estimate of more than 5000 vehicle population.

“We will ensure the effective and efficient renewal of motor vehicle licenses, registration of new vehicles, de-registration of stolen and recovered vehicles or vehicles permanently unfit for use as well as notifications of vehicle changes in respect of vehicle particulars and re-registering of stolen and recovered vehicles,” said Motlhabane.

According to the MEC, the phase two of the project will include the construction of the testing ground for the vehicle testing station and the satellite office for Taung Law Enforcement Station.
