Komane, Ms RN to ask the Minister of Transport
Whether the tender in respect of the D520 road in the North West (details furnished) has been advertised; if not, why not; if so, (a) on what date was the tender awarded, (b) what is the name of the company that was awarded the tender, (c) what is the total amount of the tender and (d) on what date was it concluded?
1. The road D520 from Makolokwe to Bethanie in the Bojanala District is not yet advertised due to budgetary constraints; however, it remains one of our priority project. It will therefore be advertised should the financial situation improve.
The Department appointed the design Engineers in August 2013 to design the road from gravel to surface standard, and to-date the design is completed and ready for implementation.
However, the implementation of the project require an Equitable Share funding that is limited. The provincial Equitable Share allocation to the Department is by far less than what is required (rand per rand match) with the grant and the current needs.
(a) (b) (c) (d) Please see above.
