FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TLOKWENG ROAD IN FINAL STAGES OF COMPLETION

PUBLIC CONSULTATIONS FOR TONOTA - FRANCISTOWN ROAD PROJECT BEGIN  

Completion of the Gaborone - Tlokweng Road project is in its final stages. The public is informed that approximately 50metres from Machel Drive junction with Kgobaseretse road adjacent to Old Naledi residences, will be shut down this weekend - Saturday 21st and Sunday the 22nd  - to allow for the relocation of underground services. Access to Water Affairs facilities and Old Naledi Residences will be gained only coming from Game City. The public is urged to use alternative routes. Any inconvenience is regretted.

 Meanwhile the Department of Roads in collaboration with its umbrella Ministry of Transport & Communications will embark again on a number of public consultations for the re-construction of the Tonota – Francistown Road. They include Kgotla meetings, Full Council meetings, address of District Development Committees and also sector’s of the economy that are likely to be affected by construction of this road. This will be done to minimise any public complaints and to solicit public advice. A tender has already been floated for this road project and is expected to be awarded in a few months time. 

Yours faithfully
