Montwedi, Mr Mk to ask the Minister of Transport
In light of the fact that the roads in the (a) Molelema and (b) Matsheng villages under Greater Taung Local Municipality in the North West are in a state of serious deterioration, what is the cause for the delay by his department in finalising the construction of the Matsheng-Molelema Road after a contractor was appointed as constructions have been halted for a year now?
The matter was queried with the North West Department of Public Works and Roads and the Administrator has indicated that there are disputes that are being handled in court and committed that the Department will maintain the roads until the litigation processes are complete as to ensure trafficability and safe condition of the road for commuters. Upon completion of the Legal processes, Department will expedite procurement processes as to ensure completion of all the outstanding work.
