RAL, Northam partner to upgrade road in Waterberg district

21 August 2017

Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL) and platinum producer Northam Platinum have signed a R60-million strategic partnership to upgrade the P20 road that links Sataria to the road artery that goes to Koedoeskop, in the Waterberg district.

Under the terms of the agreement, RAL will contribute R37.5-million to the project and Northam Platinum will cover the difference.

RAL CEO Maselaganye Matji and Northam CEO Paul Dunnesigned the agreement at the platinum mining company’s headquarters, in Midrand, this week.

“The process of appointing contractors will follow,” Matji said.

Upgrading the gravel road will be a boon for communities, as there are two schools along that road and children commute by bus.
