The reconstruction project for Nicol Road cost R5 million, a substantial investment to improve the road’s infrastructure and overall usability. Motorists can now look forward to smoother journeys with minimal traffic congestion during peak hours. Additionally, the reconstruction has resulted in a much-needed sidewalk expansion, providing pedestrians with safer and more convenient access.

The scope of work involved in the project was comprehensive. It included the installation of dump rock, 19mm stone, and new stormwater pipes. The reconstruction of manholes was carried out to ensure proper drainage, and gabions were thoughtfully installed on the sides of the road, adding both functionality and aesthetic value to the area.

Beyond the road’s restoration and the positive impact on traffic and pedestrians, the reconstruction of Nicol Road has also contributed to the local economy. The project created 11 job opportunities for the community, providing employment and economic stimulation during a time when it is especially crucial.
