Northern Cape’s road construction project to commence

07 August 2015

Construction of the access road leading to Square Kilometer Array (SKA) in Carnarvon in the Northern Cape has begun and is being managed by the NMC Construction Group, a multidisciplinary construction firm.

Works include design and construction of 80 kms of road. This will be part of infrastructure build-up for the SKA site.

The road will be upgraded to a bituminous surfaced road after construction traffic from the earlier phases of the project left the gravel road severely deteriorated.

Aside from this project, NMC Civils has also been appointed to work on the Tarkastad project which includes special maintenance of the R61, section 3 road from Cradock to Tarkastad.

The Tarkastad project will help strengthen the footprint of the company in the region as it starts immediately after NMC Construction Group completes road maintenance on the Colchester road covering 48 km of N2 and N10 from Colchester to Paterson and Grahamstown.
