Malibongwe Drive roadworks completed

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Roadworks along Malibongwe Drive (R512) in Fourways/Randburg, Johannesburg, have been completed.

The roadworks took place between 22 July and 5 August 2018 following consultations with affected stakeholders, business and communities in the area.

“The roadworks necessitated the closure of R512’s northbound section with traffic accommodated on the southbound carriageway at Epsom Ave to River Road intersection. The 700 metre stretch in the northbound section between Epsom Avenue and Boundary Road was completely closed off to traffic,” Gauteng Department for Roads and Transport spokesperson Melitah Madiba said.

Madiba said the department conducted a milling-off exercise of the existing surface and replaced it with new asphalt to improve the route’s ability to carry traffic at adequate speeds, while also enhancing road safety over the long-term.

The department is also undertaking a number of provincial road maintenance projects to ensure extension of the networks’ lifespan, reducing travel times and improving overall road safety. –
