Dilapidated municipal storm water systems bring to naught the repairs to national roads

9 December 2022

The dilapidated state of municipal storm water systems is bringing to naught expensive repair work to national roads.

Rainwater damming up in towns on main routes is eroding the roads and causing the road surface to crumble. Thus, causing millions of rand in damage.

Some examples of this are Wolmaransstad and Potchefstroom in the North West, through which the N12 runs and is frequently under water due to blocked storm water pipes.

SANRAL recently repaired the road after the FF Plus asked the Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula, to step in. R45 million was spent on repairing the road between Wolmaransstad, Klerksdorp and Potchefstroom.
