Roads

We have a long and successful history in roads provision, adding value for our client base that stretches throughout South Africa.

Projects undertaken include large upgrade and rehabilitation projects for the South African National Roads Agency and major metropolitan authorities, new major urban arterial roads, new roads required to serve urban developments for large developers, urban and rural road upgrades and internal gravel roads for large agricultural estates.

Services provided range from route selection, layouts and designs for new roads, plus detailed visual assessments, testing, and pavement designs for rehabilitation and upgrade projects. Coupled with technical skills, the team also has specific experience in environmentally friendly re-use of scarce resources, including the in-situ stabilisation of existing pavement materials, recycling of reclaimed asphalt into new asphalt mixes, and utilisation of warm-mix asphalt.
