Gauteng road works resume

2010-07-12 12:08

Johannesburg - The Gauteng highway improvement project will resume now that the 2010 FIFA World Cup is over, the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) said on Monday.

The agency expected the bulk of the roadworks to be completed by the end of the year, it said in a statement.

Lanes made available during the World Cup to allow for free-flowing traffic may need to be closed again to complete these improvements.

"It should, however, be noted that in certain areas the work still needs to be completed, for example, to add the final top layer of the road, to do quality tests and to apply final road markings."

Sanral urged road users to be careful in construction areas and adhere to road signs.

    Aag yussis, back to the old, dragging-on roadworks and more congested roads. That after a almost blissful month of flowing traffic!

    Well done sanral. This I beleive will be the most notable legacy to the SWC. Way overdue but finally here! PS, As per official records & standards, South Africa has the second best National road network (Not municipal...) in the world, second only to Germany due to signage. Well done SANRAL & Well done South Africa!

    Bad news indeed... I have a better idea, lets just stop developing altogether, I mean really who needs developement right? Matter of fact, lets rip up the existing roads & infrastructure & lets return Sandton back to the old grazinfg field for sheeps & goats as it was 100years back. Who needs developement right? Think you guys should call the presidential hotline about this immediately. Or maybe burn a few tires.

    Just hope the roadworks can be completed hastily (we now know it can be done!!!!!!). At least some of the main roads were a pleasure to drive on e.g. R21 from Pta to OR Tambo, Gilooly's much better now and N12 towards Soweto also improved.Keep going and let's stay proud of SA!!!!!!!
