Road works near completion

10 September 2019 | Infrastructure

Yolanda Nel The first phase of the N$790 million Windhoek – Hosea Kutako International airport road is 80% complete, with the new and revised completion date set for 28 November 2019.
According to chief executive of the Roads Authority, Conrad Lutombi, the contractors have experienced a number of challenges during the construction process. “Road users are not adhering to the traffic signs on the temporary bypass,” he said during a media briefing on Tuesday morning, adding that the attitude of drivers in general is negative.
Road users are also ignoring the flag persons that facilitate the construction vehicles on and off the public road.
“We are also experiencing problems with residents driving quad bikes on the construction site. This is a serious violation of road laws and it poses a big safety threat,” he said.
During the briefing, Lutombi said the access road from Academia in Hegel Street will be closed later this month. “This access road will not be reopened,” he said.
Regarding the hearsay that Academia residents took the Roads Authority to court over the closing of the road, Lutombi said that there is no court interdict preventing them to close the road.
The design for the Prosperita access as well as the new Windhoek Country Club access roads have commenced and, “construction will be implemented by October”.
The first phase of the project comprises the section from Mandume Ndemufayo Avenue to the extension of Sam Nujoma Drive. The second phase is the section between the Sam Nujoma interchange and the Hosea Kutako International Airport. [email protected]
