* Projects and contracts

By Ramodise Mekoa, General Manager, Dipalopalo FM Solutions at Statistics South Africa (Stats SA).

The PPP model began to be considered by the South African Government as one of the methods to deliver infrastructure projects in the 1990s.  There has been a steady growth of these partnerships since then. Examples of projects financed using the PPP model include the Gautrain, the Maputo Development Corridor, and the Department of International Relations and Cooperative Governance (DIRCO) head office in Pretoria, amongst others.

Cabinet ministers have backed initial proposals for a new runway at Heathrow Airport, claiming it is an historic moment. As MPs prepare to vote on the plans ahead of the 11 July 11, Paul Meagh, electrical and instrumentation services director at engineering solutions provider Boulting Ltd, explores how a modular build will benefit the £14-billion project.

Clay brick is an integral part of the personality of the new uMkhumbane Cultural Museum at Cato Manor, Durban. eThekwini Municipality’s award-winning museum surrounds an atrium space with a dramatic red brick tower. It is not only the first new museum to be built in Durban in 100 years but also the first public cultural building constructed in the area.

With branches in every major South African city, leading quality fluid conveyance solutions provider Incledon has a formidable national footprint. This allows it to target many major water-infrastructure projects in the country at present.

As Cape Town’s highways strain under ever-increasing traffic volumes, AfriSam is working with Cape contractor Martin & East and asphalt giant Much Asphalt to add an extra driving lane to one of the N1’s busiest sections through Bellville.

A busy section of the R67 route between Whittlesea and Queenstown in the Eastern Cape will soon be safer for motorists and communities alike, as Concor Infrastructure, under the supervision of KBK Engineers, makes good progress on its contract for the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) to widen the roadway and improve vertical and horizontal alignments.
