The Eastern Region of the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (Sanral), which includes KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State, has a new Regional Manager, Dumisani Nkabinde.

Nkabinde is among three accomplished professionals with extensive experience in the engineering and transport sectors who have been appointed to senior leadership positions within Sanral. Randall Cable will be responsible for the Western Region and Progress Hlahla will lead the Agency’s Northern Region. Their appointments took effect beginning of April.

Nkabinde is a professional engineer with more than 14 years’ experience in the civil and construction sectors. He joined SANRAL in 2007 as a project manager based in Pietermaritzburg and has, subsequently, been responsible for key projects in the region which covers the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State.

“We are also committed to the comprehensive transformation of the construction and engineering sectors through the greater participation of black- and women-owned companies in major projects,” said CEO of Sanral, Skhumbuzo Macozoma.

CEO of SANRAL, Skhumbuzo Macozoma, said the new appointments will strengthen Sanral’s senior management team at a time when the organisation has embarked on a new stage of its journey to manage and maintain the country’s primary road network.

Macozoma said SANRAL is proud that all three senior appointments were made from within the ranks of the agency which demonstrates the success of its internal transformation and leadership development programmes.

Nkabinde has a BSc-degree in Civil Engineering from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, an MBA and a Master’s degree from Stellenbosch. He served on the executive of the World Road Association and is currently part of an international committee to rewrite global standards for road and bridge construction.
