Lanseria to be site of new airport city development

Gauteng Premier David Makhura has highlighted the importance of Lanseria International Airport, and planned projects around it, for the development of the north-west quarter of the province. He was delivering the keynote address at the official opening of the new Control Tower and Fire Station complex at the airport on Tuesday. "Lanseria, in our vision, is a new economic node, in the north-west of our province," he affirmed. Apart from the about R1-billion being invested in the airport itself, by its shareholders (Lanseria is a private-sector airport), another R9-billion is planned to be invested in developments around it, largely by other private sector investors.
