Gauteng to unveil multi-million reconstructed Tolwane Bridge in Mabopane

Gauteng MEC for Roads and Transport, Ismail Vadi, will on Wednesday, 18 July 2018, unveil the reconstructed Tolwane Bridge in Mabopane, Tshwane.

Bridge Number 5610, washed away following heavy floods in 2014, has been restored at a cost of R34 million. As an interim measure, a temporary bridge was constructed to enable communities to travel in and out of the area.

Situated on Moiletswana Road and Lebanon Road, the bridge serves as an important link between local communities as it crosses over the Tolwane River.

As a result of significant damages to the bridge, local motorists and public transport operators had to detour when travelling to neighbouring communities.

The temporary bridge has now been replaced by an expanded bridge across the river as well as an upgraded single carriageway surfaced road. The reconstruction also entailed upgrades to the storm-water drainage system.

The event will take place as follows:

Date: Mandela Day, (Wednesday) 18 July 2018

Venue: Mabopane, Block U - Tshwane

Time: 10h00 � 12h30
