Question NW1239 to the Minister of Transport
06 May 2022 - NW1239
Mokgotho, Ms SM to ask the Minister of Transport
What plans have been put in place by his department to repair the N12 in Klerksdorp, especially in the central business district, which is filled with potholes?
The N12 section, which runs through the central business district of Klerksdorp and various other towns, are under the jurisdiction of the North-West Province. It has now been agreed between the Department of Transport, North-West Province and SANRAL that in the short-term SANRAL will be appointed by the North-West Province as the Implementing Agent to address the condition of the N12, including through Klerksdorp. SANRAL has completed a condition assessment of the affected N12 sections, identified the repair work required and is finalising arrangements to start with the required works within the next 2 weeks.
It has further been agreed that over the medium-term these remaining parts of the N12, within towns, including Klerksdorp, will be transferred to SANRAL as national roads.
