The Provincial Department of Roads has withdrawn their approval to Kouga Municipality for the resealing of the Humansdorp Main Street without any reason provided.

This only days before the project was set to commence and with the appointed contractor, Imvula Roads and Civils, ready to move on site.

“It is deeply regrettable that the Provincial Department of Roads has decided not to have the important road resealed,” said Acting Mayor, Hattingh Bornman.

“No reason has been provided as to why approval was retracted at this late stage.

According to Bornman, the municipality will continue to reseal other roads within the region with the available funding.
