SANRAL: Proposed Improvements of the N1 Section 3 between Kakamas and the Orange River

SANRAL is proposing to improve the N14 Section 3 between Kakamas (km 0.0) and the Orange River (km 1.4). The primary objective of the improvement is to raise the level of the N14 to that of the existing bridge over the Orange River. In addition to raising the road, the proposed project would entail widening of the road cross section and the introduction of seven portal culverts to increase the drainage capacity and to serve as agricultural underpasses. SLR has been appointed to undertake the required Basic Assessment process for the proposed project.


A Background Information Document (BID) with preliminary project information has been compiled and made available for an initial 30-day comment and Interested and Affected Party (I&AP) registration period. The BID is available from 18 April to 21 May 2018. All comments and registrations must reach SLR by no later than 21 May 2018 for inclusion in the Basic Assessment Report. The BID is available for download below. An I&AP registration form is included with the BID.
