Almond Road sewer reticulation project

2017-05-31 06:05

MANY questions have been raised regrading the conclusion of the Almond Road and surrounds sewer reticulation project that was left incomplete some three years ago when the then contractor, was unable to fulfil in expectations.

Circumstances necessitated the project’s re-evaluation and the start of a new tender process to the point where we are able to confirm that the tended has now been awarded to reputable WK Construction.

Starting from Monday, May 29, the contractor will photograph the area in their attempts to map, peg lines and inform residents in line with expected progress and necessary access to properties.

The labour intensive project will over a period of 12 months, seek to install six kilometres of 160 mm piping to facilitate a water-borne sewer system, thus replacing the current septic pit system that has been in use since the arrival of Noah at the Almond Road reservoir.

The following streets will at one point or another be effected: Almond, Hunyani, Good Hope, Santo Alberto, Postlooper, Top, San Luiz, Knoll and Bonaventura.

Residents are requested to observe caution and patience during the construction progress that will include increased human activity, construction equipment and disruption of sidewalks (the contract includes contingency towards reinstatement of sidewalks upon conclusion).

While the contractor will endeavour to inform residents well in advance and in writing when access to property would be required, ad-hoc access could be required if and when surveying exercises are necessary.

Co-operation in the interest of timely completion would be appreciated.
