Road Programme Creates Employment

| News by Staff Reporter

More than 13,000 jobs have been created, said the national transport department

The National Transport department on Monday said over 13,000 jobs had been created through the government’s road maintenance programme.

The road maintenance programme, which was implemented in April this year, has focussed on South Africa’s secondary road network.

The project has been given a budget of R22,3-billion spread over the next three years.

According to the National Transport Department more than 13,000 jobs have been created as a result of this project, including 4,562 in KwaZulu-Natal and 3,845 in Mpumalanga.

The department said one of the main aspects of this project has been the repairing of potholes, which are estimated to cost motorists around R50-billion per year in vehicle repairs and injuries.

It had thus allocated a sizeable portion of the budget for this reason, as well as re-gravelling of roads (of which 321km have been completed) and blacktop patching.
