oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - The construction of the National Route N2-7 between George and Kleinkrans, a section of the Garden Route : Basil Read awards

 

Abstract

The construction of this multi-million rand project, funded by the National Transport Commission, was completed in May 1987 after three years during which exceptional technical skills and flair were required to cope with the unforeseen geotechnical, ecological and landscaping problems that arose during the course of the construction period. The combined effort of the project management team and the special advisers in the structural, geotechnical, ecological and landscape architectural field resulted in the successful completion of this prestigious and controversial project. For their joint efforts, the resident engineer and the project manager were awarded the Basil Read Award (Bronze) for 1986.

Die konstruksie van hierdie multi-miljoen rand projek, waarvan die fondse voorsien is deur die Nasionale Vervoerkommissie, is in Mei 1987 voltooi. Gedurende die konstruksie periode van drie jaar het onvoorsiene geotegniese, ekologiese and estetiese probleme gesorg dat buitengewone bekwaamhede en innovasie aan die dag gelê moes word om die projek tot 'n suksesvolle voltooiing te bring. 'n Gekombineerde poging van die bestuurspan en die spesialisraadgewers op strukturele, geotegniese, ekologiese en landskapargitektoniese gebied het bygedra tot die suksesvolle voltooiing van hierdie prestige projek. Vir hulle gesamentlike bydrae hiertoe, is die resident-ingenieur en die projekbestuurder vereer met die Basil Read-toekenning (Brons) vir 1986.
