Construction of ring road at a standstill

- | 2 months ago

POLOKWANE – The process is currently marred by a number of complexities.

In November, Siphiwe Mxhosa, Head of Stakeholder Relations at the South African National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral), announced that the project would resume at the end of the month. Sanral Regional Manager, Progress Hlahla told Review a statement would be issued in this regard following a meeting that was to have been held yesterday (Wednesday), on the complexities of how to proceed with the funding available.

“The business rescue plan is not proceeding as well as envisaged and it affects the progress of projects. In Limpopo, we also have the Musina ringroad project to finalise.

” Construction on the ringroad project ended last March with the construction company, Basil Read, entering into voluntary business rescue in June. Discussions between stakeholders are ongoing, but construction of the N1 Polokwane ringroad will not continue full-scale at the end of February, as was originally planned.

Its business rescue plan was accepted in September.
