Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works Robin Carlisle delivered his budget speech for 2014 on Wednesday which stands at over R5 billion. 

The speech focused on several issues including increase in educational infrastructure, employment opportunities and the Go George set to be rolled out soon.  MEC Carlisle said the public works is set to change the face of the province with spending set to double. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Siphesihle Dube said the budget will be used to provide more schools, put some very key properties in the city and to relocate some services offered by the Provincial government to more strategic and appropriate locations.

Regarding the Safely Home Campaign MEC Carlisle said the fight against road deaths continues to be plagued by a failing criminal justice system that fails to impose consequences for culpable homicide convictions.

Dube said death rate has been reduced by 28% in five years which is unprecedented in the world for such a short time and this amount has resulted in over 2 000 lives that have been saved.
