The bulk sewer project at Mafikeng comprised the construction of a 675 mm sewer, 14 km long, from the Mafikeng Industrial Development Zone (MIDZ) development to the Mmabatho Wastewater Works. Given the possibility of aggressive sewage, the client opted for the more expensive option of concrete pipes with a 20 mm sacrificial layer given the depths of some of the excavations and the advantage of the pipe quality. Two major road crossings were made without disruption to traffic.
