Johannesburg - The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport has completed its two rehabilitation and maintenance projects in the Sedibeng District Municipality, the department said on Monday.

The Sebe and D904 project which are both in the southern corridor cost roughly R55 million, in line with the provincial government's adherence to improve and provide road infrastructure that will make it easier to access economic opportunities and improvement of lives, the department said in a statement.

"The D904 road project, which runs between De Deur and Evaton, was undertaken at a cost of R32 million. The works included maintaining and rehabilitating a two-lane single carriageway between the R82 and Evaton," spokesperson Melitah Madiba said.

The project also covered the cleaning of existing storm-water pipes, the installation of a sub-surface drainage system, the installation of road signs and markings and the construction of a pedestrian concrete lined V-drain.

"Sebe Road in Evaton was rehabilitated at a cost of R25 million. The road links Sebokeng Zones 3, 6 and 7, Residensia, Evaton Proper and Ironside towards Midvaal and Johannesburg," said Madiba.

The extent of work included the construction of seven-metre wide surfaced roads and the upgrading of two intersections between the Union and Station Roads, pedestrian sidewalks and storm-water pipes with kerb inlets as well as the installation of road signs and markings.

"The upgrades are envisioned to provide road users with improved mobility, increased roadway capacity, reduced travel times, easy access to business and residential areas as well as improving general road safety," Madiba said.
