Since we are all aware of the M17 gate closure due to the proposed road construction, we are pleased to inform you that the newly constructed ring road is now complete and ready for use.
The project was completed on the 18th of March 2022, which is three weeks earlier than the scheduled period of 7 April 2022. The newly constructed road is approximetely 2km, entailing a new pavement structure (road layerworks) of modified in situ material, imported G1 material, 40mm continuous graded asphalt layer (commonly know as tar), 4 km concrete kerbs, kerbs inlets and road signs.
The project was successfully completed without any disruptions from the stakeholders. Four local sub-contractors were appointed for numerous trades of the project, and they have positively contributed to the success of the project.
Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University would like to thank all staff and students for being patient with the renovation process, and not using the road while it was still in construction.
