Eskom's Ntombekhaya Mafumbatha says the project will expand and strengthen the province's electricity infrastructure. 

"The consumers, the benefits that they will see is the reliability of supply because it will then give an opportunity for the network to be flexible. 

"When there is a challenge in terms of one line, we are able to provide electricity via another line. Consumers will then experience very minimal challenges in terms of supply interruptions."
