The City’s Transport and Urban Development Authority, in collaboration with the Richmond Park Development Company, recently completed a project in Bothasig where Plattekloof Road was upgraded into a dual carriageway to alleviate traffic congestion. Initially estimated at R100 million, the costs for the two-year project were reduced to R80 million through good project planning. Read more below:
The dualling project, which took two years to complete, commenced in April 2016 and was completed by the end of May 2018.
The City initially budgeted approximately R100 million for the project, however, it was completed under budget with a R20 million savings due to the unused contingency budget set aside for unforeseen complications, which brought the project cost down to approximately R80 million.
The project was implemented in line with the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan which puts the customer at the centre of service delivery and prioritises the implementation of projects targeted at addressing traffic congestion.
The project to turn Plattekloof Road into a dual carriageway was also implemented as part of the conditions of approval for the new Richmond Business Park development situated between the N7 freeway and De Grendel.
