SANRAL bags CSSA awards for excellence in concrete use

12 June 2015

The partially-opened Umgeni Road Interchange in Durban is already a winner – not only with motorists but also the Concrete Society of Southern Africa (CSSA)

which this week chose it as the winner of the prestigious Fulton Award in the category for civil engineering structures over R100 million in value.

The Stafford’s Post Interchange on the N2 highway between Kokstad and Harding on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast received a commendation for a civil engineering structure up to R100 million in value. This interchange is due to be completed by July 2015.

Other SANRAL projects that were entered were:
•Isando Pedestrian Bridge;
•Upgrading of three historic arch bridges over the Orange River;
•Warrenton Bridge;
•Model Kloof Pedestrian Bridge and Walkway;
•Construction of three bridges over National Road 8 at Thaba Nchu; and
•Sundays River Bridge,

The Fulton Awards began as a tribute to the late Dr Sandy Fulton for his outstanding contribution to the understanding of concrete, its development, and improvement.

The award is made symbolically to the structure and is presented to the entire team responsible for its construction, including the owner/developer, all professionals, and the contractors.

Logashri Sewnarain, SANRAL Eastern Region Manager, said: “The accolades are testimony to the fact that we can hold our own in civil engineering excellence when competing in the national and international arenas and such recognition is much appreciated by everybody involved in the projects.”
