oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Tsitsa River Bridge now serving the Laleni community : community-based projects
The Tsitsa River Bridge project for the Laleni community in the Eastern Cape was recently completed. The project consisted of a bridge over 100 m long and 2 km of approach roads. Funding was provided by the South African National Roads Agency after the community petitioned the Office of the President. Numerous lives had been lost when community members attempted to cross the river on their way to the nearest town of Qumbu as well as local schools and clinics. The project provided a major economic stimulus to the region through the use of local suppliers and labour.
