Minister Mbalula to visit N2WC Road Project

Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula will tomorrow visit SANRAL’s multi-billion-rand N2 Wild Coast Road Project to assess progress in the implementation of one of the national government’s key Strategic Integrated Projects (SIP-3) which will serve as a critical catalyst for economic growth at a national, provincial and regional level.

The Minister will also hand over two recently completed rural access roads to the communities of Sigidi and Makhwantini in the Alfred Nzo District Municipality of the Eastern Cape province.

In recognition of the training and development opportunities associated with the building of the rural roads, the Minister will hand over certificates to the SMMEs who were trained and capacitated to participate in these projects.

These activities form part of the national October Transport Month programme and, in addition to enabling Minister Mbalula to see first-hand the achievements on the N2 Wild Coast Road Project, will also help to inform local communities and the country at large as to the progress and challenges facing the Project.
