oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - A project in the community, by the community : community-based projects
The Makwane Road Project in QwaQwa in the Free State was completed in December 2006 after a 24-month construction period. The project was carried out under the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) and consisted of 19 small projects involving 27 small, inexperienced local contractors. The existing, very poor quality dirt road (13 km) was upgraded to a high standard block road, with numerous benefits to the community and road users. The project was completed within time and budget. The project has been voted the best EPWP project in South Africa at the 2007 EPWP Recognition Awards.
