Lakeside Extensions 1 and 3: Roads and stormwater management system

Lakeside Extensions 1 and 3: Roads and stormwater management system

Project description

The works involved the planning and implementation for the provision and upgrading of stormwater management and road infrastructure, relocation of sewer and water pipes, and installation and management of streetlights.

Project objective

  • Improve stormwater and access in the township
  • Improve standard of living and attract business in the township
  • Create employment
  • Promote urbanisation to enable Provincial Department of Housing to provide title deeds to owners once the condition of the township is approved

This project is part of the ‘’urbanisation’’ of the township and the improved surroundings will have a positive impact on the property values. The constructed roads also reduced the severe effects of flooding and, most importantly, have improved mobility of the community.

The sidewalks improved the safety of pedestrians and non-motorised transport users and the upgraded roads will improve the mobility of SAPS and EMS vehicles within the community, allowing them to service the community more efficiently.

Employment created

  • A total of 138 local labourers were appointed on this project for all phases
  • A total of 69 local businesses were appointed throughout the project

Training

Local labourers received construction related technical training from a CETA-accredited service provider.
