Bosch Projects was awarded a commendation at the 2017 CESA/AON Engineering Excellence Awards for its role in special maintenance of the PE Bypass, which passes through the city of Port Elizabeth, forming the backbone of intraurban transport.
The prestigious award was a great boost for the Bosch Projects team, who has a passion for excellence, innovation and sustainability.
Bosch Projects was appointed by SANRAL for maintenance of a 28 km section of the national route N2 Section 11, between the Bramlin Interchange and Soutwerke at Coega. This 700 000 m2 dual carriageway freeway carries not only through-traffic, but also large volumes of commuter traffic. The section includes 350 000 m2 of ramps and cross-roads to 11 interchanges, which connect Port Elizabeth’s residential areas with industrial and commercial areas.
Bosch Projects incorporated advanced technology to design an effective, long-term solution for this project, taking into account various repair and re-surfacing options, to meet exact project requirements.
The works contract was completed ahead of the scheduled completion date and within budget.
SANRAL’s secondary objective of maximising local spend on subcontractors and labour from within the community, although challenging, was achieved. None of the delays anticipated at commencement of the project were experienced
