Springs is a city on the East Rand in the Gauteng province of South Africa. It lies 50 km (31 mi) east of Johannesburg and 72 km (45 mi) southeast from Pretoria. The name of the city derives from the large number of springs in the area; it has an estimated population of more than 375,000, in 2004 and is situated at 1628 m (5,340 ft) a.s.l. It is part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, which includes much of the East Rand.
Springs was divided during the Apartheid era into the middle- and upper-income white suburbs around the city centre, the Indian area of Bakerton east of the CBD, while blacks were relocated to KwaThema, southwest of the CBD.
