A road repair project in Tafelsig has been completed.

The Kilimanjaro Street project started on Tuesday 27 February and was completed last week.

“The section [of Kilimanjaro Street] between Andes Street and AZ Berman Drive was upgraded. We removed the existing road layers by milling them out and replacing the old road layers with a stronger bitumen-treated base layer with a 40mm asphalt layer on top,” says Mayco member (South), Eddie Andrews.

The City-funded upgrade cost in excess of R700 000 and is part of routine maintenance, motivated by the existing road conditions.

“The roadworks commenced on Tuesday 27 February and were completed on Friday 2 March. No road closures were applicable and traffic was accommodated by means of signs and flagmen. Outstanding road marking will be completed, weather permitting,” says Andrews.
