Emergency Repairs to Sewer Main Pipeline – Ngcakani Rd, Thembalethu: 14 February @14:52

A Contractor working for George Municipality is currently busy exposing existing services in the vicinity of the intersection of Ngcakani Road with Mbafala Street, to do repairs to a sewer main pipeline that collapsed under Ngcakani Road.

A deep excavation to get to the pipeline is planned for Thursday, 15 February 2024 and the intention is to replace the pipeline in half road widths, to ensure that traffic flow won’t get affected too much. Due to the complex nature of the work, it’s anticipated to be completed by Friday, 23 February 2024.

We’re also aware of the rain forecast for the next two days, which might have a negative impact on the planned work but we hope to still do the work. Should the weather not permit us to perform the work, we’ll start on Monday, 19 February 2024.

We request the patience and cooperation of both motorists and pedestrians during the period of work and ask that they be vigilant around the deep excavation and construction machinery and adhere to guidance signage.
