Mines pledge to assist RAL with provincial road infrastructure delivery projects

Provincial road infrastructure delivery agency Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL) has identified four opportunities for potential future strategic partnerships, which are valued at an estimated R1.12-billion, based on a preliminary technical assessment. This follows the RAL’s stakeholder engagement and fundraising session with the local business and mining sector in the Sekhukhune district municipality on February 16. The fundraising, the RAL stated on Monday, was aimed at addressing a 1 173 km backlog in road words in the Sekhukhune district, with the total road network in Sekhukhune currently sitting at 2 654 km.   The targeted roads for strategic private sector partnerships are roads D4220 at the evaluated cost of R600-million; the steel bridge at intersection of the D2219 and the R555, at an estimated cost of R81-million; D737, at an estimated cost of R40-million; and D4180, at a cost of about R400-million.
