CONSTRUCTION: Haw & Inglis Is Pressing North

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

WESTERN Cape based contractor, Haw & Inglis, is making its presence felt further afield in South Africa as it forges ahead on two separate contracts along sections of the N12 ‘diamond’ highway in North West province – a route which passes through regions famed for their gemstone prospecting history.

The first contract entails an upgrade to a 23.1km section between Wolmaransstad and Rietpan, with the construction programme commencing in May 2009 and due for completion by the end of 2010.

Meanwhile, work is at an advanced stage on the second section, extending over a distance of some 42km between Bloemhof and the Northern Cape border (passing the town of Christiana en route). A 28 month programme, construction on this section began in June 2009 and is scheduled for completion in October 2011.

At this stage we’ve completed more than 60% of the works along this 42km stretch and are ahead of schedule, says Haw & Inglis site agent, Roger Johnson, who is responsible for the Bloemhof section. If this rate continues, then we expect to be finished by July 2011.”

As with any road construction programme, optimal machine selection is a key factor in meeting the exact engineering specifications, and in this respect Haw & Inglis has a diverse equipment fleet on site, a core component of which comprise Cat units (the latter supplied and supported by sole southern African Caterpillar distributor, Barloworld Equipment).

These Cat units include Cat 140H and older generation 140G motor graders, a Cat RM300 rotary mixer, C76 vibratory rollers, Cat 730 articulated trucks, and Cat 330 excavators.
