SWART RIVER DAM:
REHABILITATION OF ACCESS ROAD
DESCRIPTION:Repairs to slip failures will be done where severe erosion and flooding caused wash-aways and failure of the roadway.
Work includes rehabilitating a portion of the existing gravel road, upgrading stormwater infrastructure, construction of gabion walls and construction of a reinforced concrete slab at a stream-crossing.
Mid-July 2023 to November 2023
No Municipal services will be affected however access to pedestrians, runners and cyclists is not permissible.
07h00 – 17h00, Mondays – Fridays
IMPACT – PLEASE TAKE NOTE
The construction area will be FULLY CLOSED to the public.
No pedestrians/runners/cyclists may access the area throughout the duration of the construction period.
Cyclists and pedestrians are to take extreme caution as large earth-moving machinery will be active on the surrounding roads driving to and from site as well and an increase in traffic volumes on the surrounding municipal streets is unavoidable over this period.
Adherence to flag persons, temporary road signage is required at all times.
ACCESS TO SITE:
Access to the site will be strictly controlled. No member of the public will be allowed access to the construction area, in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
