The old single lane Steel Bridge at intersection of the D2219 and the R555 will be refurbished for pedestrian use.
A project to construct a new bridge will soon commence.
This was confirmed by the MEC of Limpopo Public Works, Roads and infrastructure Dickson Masemola.
Masemola visited Ga Malekane last Friday.
He was accompanied by the Sekhukhune District Municipality’s mayor Stan Ramaila and Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality’s mayor Ralepane Mamekoa.
“Seven mines in the area have made financial commitment and will soon sign a memorandum with Road Agency Limpopo (RAL) in order for the project to commence,” Masemola revealed.
Masemola engaged with 10 traditional leaders in the area on infrastructure development programs of government in partnership with the private sector.
The single lane Steel Bridge had been a concern for motorists as traffic piled up during peak hours.
