Overview and Location of Works
This project consists of the re-alignment of the signalized intersection of St. Georges and First Avenue in Bloemfontein.
The new layout of the intersection also requires the widening of the existing bridge structure. The existing structure spans over the existing storm water channel.
A maintenance ramp leading into the storm water channel will also be affected. Numerous high volume services are present on site and will be affected during the construction process.
These roadworks form part of the Executive Mayor’s plans since coming into office in 2011 to rehabilitate roads in the area of Mangaung.
