SANRAL not only builds roads but businesses too

SANRAL aims to always use SMMEs to help them grow their business and transfer skills to help the business flourish after their contracts with the road agencies end.

One such SMME is Vukuzenzele Trading Corporation which specialises in Routine Road Maintenance (RRM) projects.

“Our primary responsibility is to maintain and repair roads. The standard of roads that SANRAL aspires to is very high and so as subcontractors, we need to ensure we continuously deliver according to specifications”


At the outset, Vukuzenzele did not own any equipment but now, thanks to SANRAL, the business has its own, which has helped to reduce the cost of hiring equipment dramatically.

SANRAL’s Coaching Guiding and Mentoring (CGM) system of implementation made it possible for Vukuzenzele to access skilled people to assist with executing project work effectively whilst also ensuring that the overall objectives are met.

“The CGM system allows for the subcontractor to work under the guidance of a main contractor in all of its activities including admin related tasks. You are groomed to be in control of your business”

Johnny Mofokeng, owner of Vukuzenzele, commends SANRAL for the outstanding work it is doing on South Africa’s roads and thanked the agency for the opportunity to be part of projects that are enhancing road safety and improving the lives of communities and people.
