Transport Minister Mbalula to inspect the progress on N12 National Roads in Wolmaransstad

The Minister of Transport, Mr Fikile Mbalula, will visit Wolmaransstad in the North West Province to inspect the progress on N12 National Roads through Wolmaransstad, Klerksdorp and Potchefstroom under the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality.

Earlier this year on 11 March, the Minister visited the town of Wolmaransstad to inspect the pothole-riddled N12 national road. This part of the road was under the provincial government, and the National Department of Transport put it under the South African National Roads SOC Limited (SANRAL) for the necessary and immediate fixing.

SANRAL deployed construction teams and specialists to attend to the matter as quickly as possible following the Minister’s call. About R45 million was set aside to maintain the road.

This will be the Minister’s second visit to the region to report on progress regarding commitments made after the Presidential Imbizo held in Mahikeng – for the National Department of Transport and SANRAL to fix some of the roads in consultation with the province.

Members of the media are invited to attend. The Minister of Transport and SANRAL’s Regional Manager will take media interviews on-site.
