The upgrades of the Spring Road Bridge in Weltevreden Park are expected to take place soon following the approval of the traffic management plan.

On Friday, 2 March, Ward 126 councillor David Brand met with the Joburg Road Agency regional operations manager Lawrence Maseko and the contracted engineer Andrew Singosho at the bridge to discuss a way forward.

Brand confirmed the plan approval and cited that it should start being implemented in the next two weeks. He then explained the pros and cons of the legislative side of the process which would seemingly take a few months.

“The plan has been approved and should be implemented in the next two weeks. The engineer will have his tender documents ready to be handed over to JRA by the end of the month; however, JRA procurement process where they go after the tender can take a few months.

This is a legislative process; it’s not up to our discretion. There are certain time periods we have to apply to the process,” Brand unpacked.

He added that they cannot move and give the auditor a contractor until they have been through the procurement process.

This bridge was closed off early this last year after it was damaged by a heavy storm. The integrity of the structure could not be guaranteed, resulting in it being barricaded closed.
