Upgrade of Pendela Road, Folweni – 2010
This R6M Project involved the upgrade of an existing gravel road to black-top standards. Challenges faced included formalizing a river crossing and finding effective means of managing storm water run-off from the new carriageway in this densely populated community as well as protecting deep cuts designed to overcome steep gradients. There were also existing water, electrical and Telkom infrastructure that had to be re-located which required intensive consultation with the relevant service departments. MAP AFRICA Consulting Engineers were the appointed Civil Engineers on this project and were responsible for all quality control aspects relative to these disciplines.
Upgrade of Isipingo, Reunion, Rossburg and Duffs Road Stations – 2009
This R200M Project involved the construction of a new concourse area over the existing railway lines at Isipingo, Reunion, Rossburgh and Duffs Road Stations. A requirement by the user (Metrorail) was that train operations should not be affected by the construction process. We opted for post-tensioned decks and in some instances clear spans exceeded 16m between columns. Lines were only shut down when concrete was to be poured, otherwise building operations continued overhead whilst train operations continued below. The project commenced in August 2008 and was completed and handed-over to the Client on programme and within budget in December 2009. MAP AFRICA Consulting Engineers were the appointed Structural and Civil Engineers on this project and were responsible for all quality control aspects relative to these disciplines.
