2017-09-06 06:00

WITH a number of local roads currently in a dreadful state, the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro’s roads and transport directorate celebrated the launch of two roads, namely Tromp Street in Missionvale and Chatty Link Road in Chatty, on August 28.

Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor Councillor Athol Trollip was there to open both revamped roads officially.

The day’s events started in Missionvale, where the municipality surfaced a gravel road in Tromp and Seibritz Roads.

This R10 million roads project included full surfacing with kerbing and the channelling of storm water. Tromp Road is 720m long, while Seibritz Road is 610m long.

The Chatty Link Road is a new road, linked to the Bloemendal Arterial Road and Stanford Road. It provides safe pedestrian walkways for the people in these areas.

“This is another important illustration that this administration is committed to ensuring that the residents of Nelson Mandela Bay receive quality service delivery,” Trollip said. The road is 1.48km long.

A total of 17 emerging contractors and local labour were sourced for the two projects.

“The construction of these two roads will go a long way in improving the conditions of the lives of the respective communities. Now that we have these roads, it will also be easy for emergency vehicles like ambulances, police and fire vehicles to access these areas quickly.”

He said the project was part of the metro’s “commitment to the creation of safer and caring communities”.
