Phase 4 houses coming soon

2018-01-30 06:00

The engineering services have been completed for a housing project in Masiphumelele, where the construction of over 200 houses is expected to start towards the end of March.

Brett Herron, Mayco member for transport and urban development, says the bulk earthworks, stormwater reticulation and works, tarred roads, kerbing, water reticulation network and sewerage network were completed in December.

The civil works for the Masiphumelele Phase 4 housing project started in 2016 (“Work set to begin on Masiphumelele housing”, People’s Post, 11 October 2016).

The first stage of the City of Cape Town’s housing project, earmarked for qualifying applicants living in Masiphumelele backyards and the informal settlement situated in the wetlands, will see the construction of 227 fully serviced sites on which subsidised units will be built at a later stage.

A total of 71 serviced sites are being created on erf 1912 off Ntantala Road, along with 156 serviced sites on erf 5131 in the wetlands.

The housing project will be constructed between the existing formal area and the sports fields.

Around R50m has been allocated to the project.

Sidewalks and electrical reticulation, as well as street lighting, will be constructed with the top structures, Herron says.

“Pending a successful procurement process, site establishment and top structure construction are expected to commence around the end of March,” Herron explains.

“A contractor needs to be appointed by the City of Cape Town’s Bid Adjudication Committee.

“The technical evaluation has been completed and a report recommending their appointment will be submitted to this committee once funding has been signed of,” says Herron.

“Once the appointment of the contractor is approved, a 21-day appeal period must be granted to unsuccessful bidders. If no appeals are lodged, both parties can accept the contract and site handover can take place shortly afterwards.”
