Gauteng govt sets near-term road building commitments

The Gauteng provincial government has identified 18 high-capacity roads, or arterial roads, that could serve as a lever to support the province’s plans around special economic zone (SEZ) development.
Transport MEC Jacob Mamabolo, during the budget tabling for the province on June 18, said roads infrastructure is at the core of SEZs.
To this end, the transport department of Gauteng has introduced the Transport Infrastructure House as the virtual in-house capacity to ensure effective and efficient delivery of roads infrastructure.
“We are leveraging the use of drones to monitor construction. We will be unveiling this programme formally and demonstrating its results in July,” Mamabolo said. He added that Gauteng’s transport department was working with 12 private property developers to support their multibillion-rand projects to propel the economy.
The provincial government will, in two weeks’ time, start with visits to and roadshows of the 18 arterial roads to share information about future plans.
Mamabolo said government would be rolling out the single integrated automated smart project templates that seek to transform and turn around the project management environment.
“We seek to ensure that our service providers and stakeholders and the officials move in one step, sing and read from the same hymn book on project management discipline. We seek to have a single source of the truth on project management. This will help us improve the project procurement environment and just like in car manufacturing, ensure that we build a proper linear pipeline. The Transport Infrastructure House remains seized with this matter,” Mamabolo said. Read More
