Montague Drive road reinstatements in progress<p>​</p><span><p>​​​​​​<span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:"century gothic", sans-serif;">The first of the <a href=""><span style="color:windowtext;">12 consecutive collapses on Montague Drive in Milnerton</span></a> occurred in August 2023 at multiple points in the 50-year-old 900mm fibre cement bulk sewer pipeline, which runs underground at a depth of five metres.<strong> </strong>The City then appointed a contractor to assist with emergency repairs to the sewer, which were completed in January 2024. Road reinstatement was the last phase needed to call the project to a close.</span><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:903px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>​​​​​​<span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:"century gothic", sans-serif;">There were numerous delays, among which the need for a specialist road contractor. This was a joint intervention between Road Infrastructure Management Services (RIMS) and Water and Sanitation.</span></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:916px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p style="text-align:justify;">The City aims to ensure that the road is reinstated to RIMS standards and specifications, with works totalling about 780m<sup>2</sup>. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p>'I am pleased that reinstatements have finally started and also earlier than anticipated following the tireless efforts from our team to see the project to its completion. The City budgeted approximately R2,5 million for the reinstatement phase of this major/multiple repair.  We share the frustration of the residents and business owners and thank them for their patience during this process. Every effort is being made to open at least one lane in the southbound carriageway as soon as possible. City teams will monitor the progress of the road reinstatements very closely until the work has been completed,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation, Councillor Zahid Badroodien.<br></p><p><br></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:"century gothic", sans-serif;">End</span></strong><br></p>2024-06-02T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#a3ac5825-3464-4e1b-a58b-75c8b257d806;L0|#0a3ac5825-3464-4e1b-a58b-75c8b257d806|water & sanitation;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#36a1168d-a508-46b6-bc80-b2e9f2f35a0b;L0|#036a1168d-a508-46b6-bc80-b2e9f2f35a0b|Community and Society10
