Hatch Goba (Pty) Ltd was awarded the contract to undertake the assessment, design and construction supervision for the construction of structures and facilities relating to commuter and pedestrian safety along the R61 Section 8 between Mthatha and Port St Johns. The project had two main objectives- firstly to implement vehicular and pedestrian safety initiatives along the route, and secondly to implement a community development programme that focused on the development of local SMME contractors. In order to achieve the two objectives, eight packages were devised, structured such that they achieved SANRAL's objectives of conventional construction and community development. The overriding principle was that the upgrade of the R61 would be done using conventional methods, while the community development portion of the project would be utilised for the training and development of local SMME contractors.
