THE planned multi-million Rand upgrade for the Tsitsikamma section of the Garden Route National Park, is well on track.

The project began in 2016 as part of a +R19 million project to upgrade infrastructure in the Storms River Rest Camp and includes the development around the Big Tree. To date 80% of the work is complete, including a temporary road constructed in 2015 to allow visitors to access the park.

The office building to house client services and reception staff is completed and operational, while the entrance gate to the Tsitsi-kamma section of the Garden Route Natio-nal Park (GRNP) is set to be completed in 2018. SANParks is in the process of appointing a concession holder to complete the construction work at the gate, after a hired company could not complete the task due to unforeseen circumstances.

The renovation of the park gate aims to introduce a streamlined structure and system for visitors entering the main gate. Noise le-vels around the site have remained normal and parking space has not been affected by the construction work. No heavy machinery is used and all work is on the existing footprint.
