Ga-Seleka road upgrades, South Africa

September 30, 2016
In 2014, Exxaro appointed Aurecon to undertake a prefeasibility study for two roads that would not only improve the accessibility of communities from 14 villages in Limpopo to major provincial roads and business hubs, but also drastically improve their lives in the way of, among other benefits, skills development and job creation. The prefeasibility study included an environmental screening, road design options and costing, as well as engagement with affected communities to determine potential benefits through labour-intensive construction methods and local economic development opportunities. The first road, named the Northern Link, will run from Rietfontein for 33.5 km to Letlora while the second road, named the Southern Link, will run from Kiti for 14.1 km to Abbotspoort. Two years later Exxaro’s vision has begun to take shape through an unprecedented joint venture between public and private sectors. Exxaro has subsequently embarked on a journey with Roads Agency Limpopo, the Lephalale Local Municipality and Aurecon to design and construct the two roads.
