The Green Paper on Local Government, released during October, descriptionbes alternative models for our metropolitan areas, viz : The single government or 'megacity' model; The two-tier model, ie the present form in our three major metropolitan areas However, the megacity has in recent months been strongly advocated by prominent leaders, especially in Gauteng. The way in which local authorities are structured, their size and also their jurisdictional boundaries are of major significance for the delivery of water, sanitation, roads and stormwater services. Thus the mega city debate is of prime concern to civil engineers. It is reasonably easy to identify which of our services are better delivered at metropolitan level and which at a more local level.
