The Garden Route District Municipality reports today that the construction and repairs to Madiba Drive are progressing swiftly after pipe laying was completed on 13 April 2022. The second layer of bedding, a cradle constructed from boxed wet soilcrete, which allows for weathered edges at collars, began on 28 April 2022 and was completed on 6 May 2022.  A 200mm by-pass pipe was removed and water is now flowing through the newly laid 1.8m diameter pipe.

According to Lungisa Qendu, Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) Senior Engineering Technician, the project has now reached 75% of its completion (excluding the headwalls and gabions).  “Headwalls and gabions are outside the roadway and will be constructed at a later stage because the priority for us is to open the road to the public,” said Qendu. “

The GRDM is working hard to maintain and repair roads damaged by floods. Please drive carefully whenever approaching construction sites. Let us work together to ensure that our roads are safe.
