Harambee construction forges ahead

Recent rainfalls across Ekurhuleni, and the rest of Gauteng will not hamper construction of the Harambee bus rapid transit (BRT) system.

Aurecon civil technician Bongi Nkosi confirms that the rain would have minimal effect on development of the system currently under way in Tembisa and Kempton Park. “Critical construction activities are only paused in a case of very severe rainfall,” says Nkosi.

Construction of Harambee commenced on the complementary route between Tembisa Hospital through the Tembisa Civic Centre and up to Isando in April 2014.

The system aims to be one of the key drivers for the regeneration of inner cities and the renewal of townships in Ekurhuleni. It aims to connect communities through mobility within the City of Ekurhuleni, extending into adjacent metros.

Road deviations have been applied from day one of construction and will be maintained for the duration of the project.

“No additional traffic restrictions are expected, but to accommodate construction activities, traffic will be moved around in sections, from time to time from south to north-bound lanes, or vice versa.”

Completed construction works in Tembisa include:

  • Dedicated busways (BRT lanes) between George Nyanga Drive and Hadebe Street
  • Bus station module 19, south of Ossewa Street
  • Bus station module 20, north of Oranjerivier Drive

Various ongoing works in Tembisa include:

  • Parapet walls of Bus Station Module 7, between Molambo Crescent and George Nyanga Drive
  • Base layer on centre lanes, between Hadebe Street and Hlahlandlela Street
  • Steel fixing on foundation bases at bus station module 8, between Hlahlandlela Street and Zephania Msebenzi Street
  • Steel fixing on foundation bases at bus station module 8, between Hlahlandlela Street and Zephania Msebenzi Street
  • Base layer on centre lanes, between Zephania Msebenzi Street and Peacock Street
  • Base layer on north-bound lane, between Peacock Street and Nkoro Street
  • Non-motorised transport facilities including cycling lanes within Tembisa (Brian Mazibuko) and up to the Isando corridor.
