Rosslyn: The R50 billion project throwing Tshwane into the spotlight

For Rosslyn, the wheels are officially in motion to turn this area north of Tshwane into the “automotive capital of South Africa”.

As reported by Business Tech, a whopping R50 billion is set to be ploughed into the region through the Automotive Industry Development Centre (AIDC).
Will Rosslyn cost the taxpayer any money?

In fact, an overwhelming amount of the investment is coming from the private sector. Government and taxpayer money will only be used for road infrastructure and other public services.

The first phase of the project will see the Rosslyn Hub begin its development. The region is already home to four motoring and engineering sites – Tata, BMW, Nissan and Iveco – but this new development is looking to build an entire metropolis.
What is being built at Rosslyn Hub?

  • 1,200 houses
  • 250 rental apartments
  • Schools and a university campus
  • Shopping centres
  • Industrial parks
  • Motor retail areas
  • Health clinics

Can Tshwane become South Africa’s automotive capital?

The Hub’s ambitions are lofty, to say the least. After yesterday’s ceremonial ground-breaking event, it seems that government want to see local vehicle manufacturing figures rise up to 1.2 million a year by 2020.

Located just off the R566, the development will also include a mall and residential areas to help stimulate growth. The town is getting a makeover of biblical proportions, as Gauteng prepares to accelerate its local economy.
