UUIP’s tireless efforts in cleaning, greening, and maintenance

At the beginning of June, uMhlanga experienced a significant storm that caused various damages across our beautiful coastline and promenade. Since then, the uMhlanga Urban Improvement Precinct (UUIP) has been working tirelessly with contractors and municipal departments to restore and enhance our public spaces just in time for the June holidays. Here’s a detailed update on our cleaning, greening, and maintenance efforts for this month.

Storm Damage Update

We are pleased to report that most of the storm damage repairs are either in progress or have been completed. Our dedicated team has been working around the clock to ensure that all affected areas are addressed promptly. The trees obstructing the boardwalk have been cut, and the boardwalk has been repaired, ensuring safe and enjoyable access for all visitors and residents who frequent this scenic route. The clearing of all storm debris is expected to be finalised this week, as Parks is currently focused on major work in the Tongaat area. Additionally, many signs were damaged during the storm, and we are actively replacing these signs as stock becomes available to ensure clear and safe navigation for all.


General Cleaning, Greening, and Maintenance Updates

Our landscaping efforts have been extensive. All landscaping has been attended to and meets our high standards. Grass areas, including those in Hawaan and Durban View, have been cut and maintained to perfection. Both beaches are open and clean, with our Parks and UIP teams working hand in hand to clear the beaches of wood debris. This debris is being repurposed for dune rehabilitation, contributing to the preservation and enhancement of our natural environment.

“Our collaboration with various contractors and municipal departments has been instrumental in returning uMhlanga to its pristine state post-storm. The combined efforts have significantly expedited the restoration process, ensuring that our community can enjoy the beauty of our beaches and promenade once again,” said Dewet Geldenhuys, Precinct Manager of the uMhlanga UIP.

Our commitment to maintaining the beauty and functionality of uMhlanga is unwavering. As we prepare for the June holidays, we are focused on ensuring that our beaches, promenade, and green spaces are in pristine condition for all to enjoy.
