The project has been allocated R160m in the 2018/19 period, and R524m over the next three years, as noted in the Ekurhuleni 2017/18 Budget Highlights. Established in 1957, Tembisa is a major informal settlement to the north of Kempton Park on the East Rand in Gauteng.

Junithan Moodley, operations director of the Motheo Construction Group’s civils division, explains that the next step is to appoint sub-contractors in terms of relevant small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs), as well to provide the DBSA with a detailed quality plan for the works, including the construction methodology to be adopted.

“Our detailed programme for the scope of work will emphasise the critical path and completion date, which is an estimated 12 months for the entire package,” Moodley outlines. Site handover and mobilisation are currently underway.
