Makana Municipality is a hive of activity, with road construction projects taking place simultaneously in Joza and in the CBD. Makana LM is happy that this important work is underway and would like to appeal to residents to be patient while work is being done on these roads. Construction on the Ncame Street project is coming along nicely with most of the old tar road already removed. Makana Municipality conducted a sod-turning ceremony to mark the start of the upgrade of Ncame Street in Joza on 12 April 2021.
The project will also focus on upgrading the storm water system to divert the run-off.
Two (2) traffic circles will be constructed on the Ncame and Nompondo Street intersection as well as on the Ncame and Sani street intersection, for traffic calming as well as ease of traffic flow.
The upgrade of Ncame Street will also include the erection of road signs, road markings and sidewalks which will be constructed on the western side of the street. At the conclusion of the project the road will be fully paved to give motorists and pedestrians a pleasant experience. The project is expected to be completed in 72 weeks from the commencement date. The total budget for the project is R18 332 367.78.
Four streets in the CBD area will also receive a much-needed makeover. These are:
On Thursday, 13 May 2021 Makana Municipality conducted yet another sod-turning ceremony to mark the start of the rehabilitation of the above mentioned streets. This project will make a huge difference to the road network in and around our CBD area. We appeal to residents to be patient, because some roads will need to be closed off to allow work to continue. The CBD upgrade will cost R17, 8million and it is expected to be finished in 6 months from the commencement date.
Once work on these roads is completed, driving around Makhanda will look and feel much better for motorists.
The Contractors will at all times ensure that road users are timeously warned of any developments on all the streets mentioned above.
