Mid-2015 Limpopo’s Public Works and Infrastructure Department announced that R1.2 billion had been earmarked for road refurbishment and maintenance to be rolled out over the next three years. Included in this roll-out was maintenance to a section of the Moletjie Road Project in Polokwane that was to be upgraded from gravel to paving. Technicrete’s Bond Brick and kerbs were selected for this project.
Makapani Modipa, CEO of MacP Construction said “There was no established pavement on this section of Moletjie Road, it was a gravel walkway that needed to be upgraded to a paved surface. Included along this stretch of walkway a 1.3 km bus stop had to be accommodated in the construction.”
“We chose the Technicrete Bond Brick and kerb products due to their durability, this was a key factor for the bus stop development in particular, due to the weight and regularity of the bus traffic. The good pricing and Technicrete’s reputation for reliable servicing made them a natural choice for the Moletjie Road project “said Modipa.
“The project consisted of a combination of 50mm Bond Bricks together with Fig 8B Kerbs, 60mm and 80mm Double Zig Zag Grey pavers and Fig 3`s Kerbs”.
“The Bond Brick is a traditional paver that offers economy and durability and is very well suited for commercial and domestic surfaces. It has been a preferred choice not only with local municipalities, but by private commercial developments as well” said Hendrik Steenkamp, Sales Consultant for Technicrete ISG in Polokwane.
“Our pre-cast concrete kerbs are an ideal edge restraint in the construction of roads, kerb and gutter systems. We also can now offer our Figure C900 mountable kerb which can be utilised in traffic calming measures.”
“We were pleased to have joined forces on this R2 million project with MacP Construction. Where heavy traffic is experienced, our Bond Brick paving blocks are perfect because of their well established reputation for longevity and quality while still offering a really good finish aesthetically. We aim to ensure that all stock is supplied as per client requirements, and this was the case on the Moletjie Road Project” concluded Steenkamp.
The vast ranges of technologies and products, specifically suited for infrastructure maintenance and development, are the core offering from Technicrete ISG, and its sister companies Rocla and Ocon Brick.
