LEADING road construction company AG Thomas has been awarded a tender to fix the roads, which are in a bad state in Nhlangano Town.

These are the short stretch roads, which connect to some of the main roads leading to the town centre. The project, which will be for three months will cost approximately E3 million.

According to Nhlangano Mayor Deon Anderson, work is expected to start sometime this month.

He said the project was initially supposed to start a few months ago but it has been delayed by other technicalities some of which were to do with COVID-19.

“It is now a sure case that the project will take off. We have addressed the obstacles and everything is now in place.

In fact, we will execute a site handover as all the paperwork and other requirements have been completed. AG Thomas will be on site anytime this week. Once the company is on site, that would mean the beginning of work,” said Anderson.

The mayor added that the company would need support from everyone in order for the project to succeed without any hindrances. He said alternative routes are to be used while work continues.

“We are to be directed, which direction to take while work is progressing. We are aware of the inconvenience but this is just going to be something for the time being.

We expect the same cooperation from motorists and all other road users for a project of this nature. For the company to do its work properly, it is going to need all the support it deserves,” said Anderson.

He hinted that the town council was considering addressing the potholes in some of the roads within the town.

He said depending on the availability of funds, all the roads whose surfaces are potholed would be fixed. “We are aware how some of the roads have been damaged and we are fixing them.

However it all depends on how much we have in our coffers,” said Anderson.
