In 2010/11, the JDA intends to implement four township developments: Orlando East Station in Soweto; Kliptown in Soweto; Stretford Station in Orange Farm; and Diepsloot in Region A, on the northern perimeter of the city.
Orlando East Station
Orlando East Station is a new project that is being implemented by the JDA for a number of important reasons: it is a significant site from a heritage perspective; its location close to Orlando Stadium; its location on the Rea Vaya BRT route; and its proximity to Vilakazi Street and the Orlando Ekhaya projects.
The Greater Kliptown Development Project (GKDP) was established in November 2001 under the ambit of Blue IQ. The JDA was appointed the implementing agent.
Stretford Station is in Orange Farm, on the Johannesburg-Vereeniging boundary, approximately 40km south of the Johannesburg CBD. It falls in Region G and because of its strategic position as a transport node, should be further developed.
According to the Diepsloot Urban Development Framework, the area is characterised by high levels of multiple deprivation. The Region A Spatial Development Framework for 2007/08 estimated that 74 percent of its housing units were informal structures.
