Vadi announces completion of R48m road project
11 Jun 2018 - by
Gauteng MEC for Roads and Transport, Ismail Vadi, officially opened the rehabilitated R51 road between Vereeniging and Balfour today.
The R48-million construction project, completed three months ahead of schedule, is expected to improve safety and expand the lifespan of the road by a further 20 years.
According to Vadi, the road has degraded over the years due to increased use by heavy trucks from surrounding areas which left it with limited load bearing capacity.
