Mathabatha plans to improve Limpopo roads

The decision to rehabilitate the roads emanates from the cross-governmental partnership between the Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL), the Limpopo Department of Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure and various municipalities.

Limpopo residents can expect massive improvements on the local towns’ roads.

Premier Stan Mathabatha recently spearheaded the signing of a memorandum of co-operation on the rehabilitation of roads in various municipalities in the province.

The decision to rehabilitate the roads emanates from the cross-governmental partnership between the Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL), the Limpopo Department of Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure and
various municipalities.

RAL has been invited to assist with road construction skills as part of encouraging synergy between government
departments and local municipalities.

Addressing the premier’s intergovernmental forum, Mathabatha emphasised the matter of collaboration
in the provision of service as paramount in advancing economic development and recovery.

“We are one government; therefore, we should use available resources and skills to develop our province in
a collaborative manner. This fundamental intervention and partnership that is going to be signed is one great step towards improving the condition of roads within our towns, as well as assisting in economic recovery,” said Mathabatha.

RAL’s chairperson, Matome Ralepibi, said, “The goal is to target the construction and rehabilitation of roads that
are catalytic to the economic development of Limpopo.

As the board of RAL, we also adopted the strategic partnership approach to join hands with the private sector
and municipalities. We believe together we can win the battle to reduce the road infrastructure
backlog in the province.”

RAL will soon appoint a consulting engineer for the D2405 in Kgautswane.
