Rehabilitation of Main Road 240 (R399) between Vredenburg and Paternoster.

About the Project


We were appointed on 8 October 2018 by the Road Network Management Branch, Department of Transport and Public Works, Western Cape Government to rebuild MR240 between Vredenburg and Paternoster.

The contract commenced on 10 January 2019 and was completed on 16 May 2020. Three 24-hour stop-and-go sections were in place on the 13km of road enabling us to build the road in half widths. The new design realigned the road horizontally and vertically. Rock was present in one of the deeper cuttings and had to be blasted with dynamite.
