Resurfacing of Japhta K Masemola Road in Makhaza<span><p>The work on Japhta K Masemola Road, between Baden Powell Drive and Cekeca Road in Makhaza will include the resurfacing of the existing road layer and repainting of road markings.</p><p>Road users are advised to anticipate some traffic congestion between Baden Powell Drive and the Nyanda/Fukutha intersection due to the temporary half-width road closure that will happen as the City works on one lane at a time. The lane closure will be implemented for approximately three weeks.</p><p>Road users are advised to use alternative routes while construction work is under way. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:900px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>'Bahlali, siphinde sabuya eMakhaza, residents, we are back in Makhaza, and this time we are working on the section between Baden Powell Drive and Cekeca Road. Through this project, we have provided temporary work opportunities to 10 members of the community and we hope that this experience will help them gain additional work experience and future opportunities. The poor state of the road in this area is a direct result of ongoing illegal building over stormwater infrastructure and we request that residents refrain from doing so, and co-operate with our officials who need to access storm water drains and channels in order to construct diversions in the future. Blocked and built over stormwater infrastructure causes water to pool on the road surface, and deteriorate the road quality over time. Fixing roads subjected to standing water as a result of illegal blockages is made difficult, due to meaningful road repairs only being made possible when the road surface is dry for prolonged periods.</p><p>'We ask that road users exercise caution while these roadworks are under way. Please drive slower, pay attention to road signs, be vigilant in and around the work site, look out for uneven road surfaces and be mindful of construction workers. Once this resurfacing is done, we will all benefit from safer and smoother road conditions in Makhaza,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.</p><p> </p><p><strong>End</strong></p>2024-04-01T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513;L0|#0f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513|roads;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#3e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755;L0|#03e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755|maintenance10
