Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality covers an extensive area from Germiston in the west to Springs and Nigel in the east. The former administrations of the nine towns in the former East Rand - Alberton, Benoni, Boksburg, Brakpan, Edenvale/Lethabong, Germiston, Kempton Park/Tembisa, Nigel and Springs - were amalgamated into the metropolitan municipality, along with the Khayalami Metropolitan Council and the Eastern Gauteng Services Council. It is one of the most densely populated areas in the country, and province. Economy in the region is larger and more diverse than that of many small countries in Africa. It accounts for nearly a quarter of the Gauteng economy, which in turn contributes over a third of the national Gross Domestic Product. Many of the factories for production of goods and commodities are located in Ekurhuleni, often referred to as "Africa's Workshop". A network of roads, airports, rail lines, telephones, electricity grids and telecommunications are found in Ekurhuleni that rivals that of Europe and America. It can be regarded as the transportation hub of the country. It is home to the OR Tambo International Airport; South Africa's largest railway hub; a number of South Africa's modern freeways and expressways; the Maputo corridor development; direct rail, road and air links connecting Ekurhuleni to Durban; the Blue IQ projects, with linkages to the City Deep Container terminal; the planned Gautrain rapid rail link to Johannesburg and Tshwane; and the OR Tambo International Airport Industrial Development Zone (IDZ).
