Chota Motala: stolen beams to be replaced

2012-05-11 00:00

STEEL beams specially made for the Chota Motala interchange, which were stolen, would be replaced and construction was continuing, site manager Bradley Naidoo said yesterday.

He said the theft of the custom-made heavy steel beams had delayed the bridge works.

However, rep[lacement beams had been ordered.

Naidoo said steel believed to be worth millions of rand was stolen from the site in recent months, while thieves had also turned to stealing temporary road signs from the construction site.

“Over 60 road signs have gone missing. It’s becoming a problem,” he said, adding that a single sign could cost up to R3 000.

Naidoo said the construction site security team and police were investigating.
