#GARDENROUTEDAM: The raising of the Garden Route Dam is on track

 

#GARDENROUTEDAM: The raising of the Garden Route Dam is on track for practical completion by 12 December 2019.

The raising of the spillway is 75% completed with the spillway wall footings done and the drainage channel cast. The high-pressure grouting is also almost complete, with one final hole remaining to be grouted at the last site inspection visit.  All grout tests have passed so far. The process of construction of the new spillway walls has commenced, with the fixing of the wall steel and the grouting in of the anchor bars into the existing spillway retaining walls.  

Heavy construction vehicles are currently still operating on both the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF) / Nelson Mandela University (NMU) and George sides of the dam wall, this includes the harvesting of lumber in the DEFF area.  The required signage is in place to warn the public that the area is a construction site and only authorised persons are permitted to access this area wearing the correct safety clothing. 

The Municipality sincerely thanks the majority of its residents for adhering to the restrictions as this allows construction to continue without undue interruption and additional safety, financial and program risks. Regrettably there are still a number of cyclists/residents who continue to ignore the warning signage at extreme risk to their own lives.
  
All enquiries must please be referred to Gvanniekerk@george.gov.za  for feedback and comment.
