In the interview, Joseph explained what caused the road to collapse and the measures that will have to be taken by the contractor to reinstate it.

Met on site with JRA & Rand Water engineers and the closure of 9th Avenue between JG Strydom & Rugby Road is due to the collapse of the 9-meter deep trench through which the contractor will be Pipe-jacking the new pipe.The road will be opened to 1-lane only within the next 24 hours (not 4 hours as mentioned in the video).
