Highway operator Bakwena Platinum Corridor concessionaire plans to rolled out an investment worth US$ 10 million in plaza construction in South Africa. The upgrades involves upgrades of the zambesi, Pumulani, Stormvoel, Doornpoort, Brits and Marikana plazas.
The upgrades are being implemented in response to increased traffic volumes along the corridor and are expected to increase plaza capacity through the addition of new lanes.
According to Bakwena CEO Graeme Blewitt they expect minimal disruption at the individual plazas during and after construction. They also hope to maintain or improve the existing flow of traffic. Construction had already started and is expected to be complete by December 2017.
Zambesi plaza will be the first beneficiary from this upgrade , with two extra lanes being built at the on-and offramps. The extrawide lane on the onramp to the freeway was initially closed to accommodate the upgrade while the one on the offramp would be closed from March 17.
