Draft bar released for Summerstrand stormwater

The Draft Basic Assessment Report (BAR) for the upgrading of stormwater infrastructure in Summerstrand has been released for public comment.

The municipality is planning to alleviate flooding that occurs in Summerstrand “by augmenting the existing stormwater reticulation”.

This includes the construction of approximately 2 500 metres of storm-water pipelines; construction of two new stormwater detention ponds and the upgrading of one existing detention pond.

One proposed new detention pond is on erf 1593, west of the intersection of Louis Botha Crescent and Ben Viljoen Road, while the detention pond to be upgraded is on erf 3146 to the south of the intersection of Strandfontein Road and Admiralty Way.

The other new detention pond is on erf 2 142 and is south of the intersection of McWilliams Road and Bulbring Road.

The BAR for the project states that if environmental authorisation is granted, detailed design drawings will then require the approval of the municipality after which the project will go out to tender, be adjudicated and contractors appointed.

The report says the project “could span” a period of approximately four-and-a-half years.

Of this, two years has been allocated for the approval of the detailed design, tender adjudication and appointment; 18 months for construction and 12 months for the post-construction defects liability period. - metrominutes
