SANRAL has awarded projects for resurfacing National Road R572, section 2, from Monte Christo (km 0.0) to Rooigrond (km 24.0) and from Rooigrond (km 24.0) to Tom Burke (km 47.95) in the Limpopo province. The awards were made under contract numbers R.572-020-2019/1 and R.572-020-2019/2, respectively.
The high-level scope of the project includes the mobilisation period and site establishment, traffic accommodation, the required pre-treatment of existing road-edge break repairs, constructing edge beams, base and surface patches, repairing bridge joints, constructing seals and applying road markings.
The tender amount for R572, Section 2, from Monte Christo (km 0.0) to Rooigrond (km 24.0) is approximately R82 million and from Rooigrond (km 24.0) to Tom Burke (km 47.95) is about R83 million.
The projects aim to improve the ride quality and reduce travel time. The projects would make the road safer, comfortable and easier to travel on. The job creation activities would be undertaken through employing SMMEs, casual labour and PLOs, thus enhancing the economic benefit for the community. The projects already have an established PLC.
The Project Manager is Ms Nozipho Ngomane, who can be contacted on 012 426 6200 or NgomaneN@nra.co.za. The contractor is Roadspan Surfaces (Pty) Ltd, and the consultant is Royal Mndawe Holdings (Pty) Ltd.
SANRAL’s Northern Region Manager, Mr Hlahla, indicated the project would assist in preserving the existing pavement and travellers would benefit from reduced travel times and improved ride quality. He noted that the project would subcontract a minimum of 30% of the work to targeted enterprises, as defined in the Contract Data. This would benefit local SMMEs and have a positive impact on the local economy.
