NU 2 Swimming pool plans underway

NU 2 Swimming pool plans underway

Looking back in history, the NU2 swimming pool was once a safe haven for the youth of Mdantsane in the early 70’s until late 80’s when it was closed.

The swimming pool activities that were held in Mdantsane produced well-trained swimmers and professional lifeguards however since its closure in late 80’s it has become a home for criminal activities and antisocial behaviour.

 For years, the Mdantsane community has made public appeals for the revival of the swimming pool but efforts made by the Metro to rehabilitate the facility were met with procurement and service provider challenges.

The City’s plans for the coming financial year is that the pool to be completed without interruptions. Moving forward with the plans, the plans on Friday 20 April, a sod turning ceremony was held at the NU 2 swimming pool to mark the start of its reconstruction.

Addressing the NU2 community last week during the ceremony, Executive Mayor Xola Pakati said, "Buffalo City will bring back the pride and joy of this community and the young people will have an opportunity to acquire swimming skills and have a safe place for enjoyment.”

Pakati said the project has a total budget of R12 million and will be undertaken in two phases.

 The first phase will focus on getting the existing swimming pool functional, it will be completed by December 2018 and R3 million will be spent for this phase."

 "The second phase will include the development of other structures such as additional swimming pools and ablution facilities, R9 million has been budgeted for this phase and it is estimated to complete in June 2019," said Pakati.

He added that the City also plans to upgrade the sports precinct that comprises of the Orlando Stadium and Sisa Dukashe Stadium.

 Sky High Consulting Engineers is the appointed contractor for the development and design of the facility.

Quinton Winandt representative from Sky High Consulting Engineers said that the scope of work will include the demolishing of slabs, pump house and entrance, repair and retiling of the existing swimming pool, construction of parking area and the construction of two kiddies’ pools and walkways.

Future expansions will include constructing a gymnasium at the facility and heating of the Olympic size swimming pool.

69-year-old Johnny Fulani was delighted to hear that their beloved structure which has been in a state of ruin for years is coming back to life.

 "I am so happy today, finally our children will get to experience what we experienced back in the 1960's when the swimming pool was first built," said Fulani.
