CONTRACT C921: THE UPGRADING OR DR1050 (ANNANDALE ROAD) KM 0.00 TO KM 7.33 IN THE STELLENBOSCH AREA
Baseline Civil Contractors has been awarded the above-mentioned contract to upgrade Annandale Road from Km 0.00 at the R310 (Baden Powel Drive), across the R44, to Km 7.33 at the entrance gate to Rust & Vrede, Bilton Wines, Haskell Vineyards and Jacanya . The project has already started, and we are currently busy with establishment of our site offices and laboratory, setting out of the new road reserve and erection of new fences.
The construction of the road between the R310 (km 0.00) and the R44 (km 5.44) will commence later this week or early next week and will be constructed in phases until Nov 2018. The intension is to have 2-way traffic accommodation on this section for the majority of the time. However, temporary stop/go closures will have to be implemented from time to time (especially at the start) to enable us to construct the temporary widenings needed for the 2-way traffic accommodation. This section also includes the construction of a new bridge over the Eerste River. The old bridge will only be demolished when the new bridge and approaches have been completed.
Work on the section between the R44 and Km 7.33 is scheduled to begin this week and the section will be constructed in 2 halves until Nov 2017. This section will be constructed with a stop/go closure for the full duration.
Access will be maintained to all properties at all times. Before working in front of existing accesses or while constructing new accesses the relevant landowner or tenant will be contacted to agree alternative arrangements.
