Gugulethu sidewalk construction temporarily suspended<div>The project has suffered a few setbacks, including delays as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions on construction during the hard lockdown in 2020. </div><div><br></div><div>In December 2019, the contract was terminated due to community related unrest and stoppages; and, unfortunately, a few days ago, the current contractor informed the City that it cannot continue the work.</div><div><br></div><div>The work undertaken in Umthetho Street, previously known as NY155, and a portion of Albert Luthuli Street, previously known as NY146, was initially scheduled for completion in early April 2022. At this point in time the construction work is approximately 80% complete along Umthetho Street and approximately 75% complete along Albert Luthuli Street.
