The innovative use of redundant materials, a labour-intensive component, cost-effectiveness and a potential for future upgrading made this project a winner The project that won last year's Highveld Branch Award for Excellence in Civil Engineering was aimed at conveying stormwater from north to south on the eastern side of the Secunda CBD. For nearly 20 years, since the inception of the town, various stormwater pipes have discharged into an open ditch on the eastern side of the CBD. As the CBD developed, more and more stormwater discharge was generated by the CBD area itself, resulting in major erosion of the open earth drain.
