The Limpopo Provincial Government has approved the transfer of nineteen (19) provincial roads to the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL).
The resolution was taken during the Executive Council meeting earlier this week, marking a significant step towards improving road infrastructure in the province.
This follows the Minister of Transport, Sindisiwe Chikunga’s request to all provinces to identify strategic roads that can be considered as National Roads and transferred to SANRAL. Limpopo responded by identifying nineteen (19) routes from the provincial network.
Provincial Government Spokesperson Ndavhe Ramakuela said the provincial routes are distributed across five districts, covering 1084.83 kilometers.
“These roads have been carefully selected based on specific criteria, including proximity to national roads, road classification, traffic assessment, and economic activities related to mining, agriculture, and tourism,” said Ramakuela.
Additionally, the Executive Council approved the Infrastructure Cluster Programme of Action and the Economic Sector Cluster Programme of Action reports for the second quarter of 2023/24.
