Emergency patching on Mandela Highway starts today
THE National Works Agency (NWA) will today be doing emergency patching along the Mandela Highway between the Twickenham Park roundabout and the Ferry Police Station.
Approximately 700 square metres of patching, using asphaltic concrete, will be carried out along both the eastern and western sides of the highway, the NWA said. "Potholes will be patched to provide ease of movement for motorists," it said.
The patching, which is expected to cost taxpayers $1.7 million, should be completed within five days, according to the NWA.
Motorists who use the highway have been warned to expect minor delays while patching is in progress, and were advised to obey the posted warning signs as well as the instructions of flag persons.
