Environment

We are committed to implementing responsible measures to protect the environment against hazards associated with road construction, operation and maintenance. We recognise that environmental interests must be integrated with cost-effective delivery and operation to meet the needs of the public.

Therefore we will:

  • Comply with all South African environmental laws and regulations, policies, initiatives and requirements;
  • Ensure that contractors establish a sustainable environmental management system to manage environmental challenges and manage and prevent pollution on Bakwena projects;
  • Implement an Operations and Maintenance Environmental Management Plan and regularly update it to ensure all new and relevant issues are included;
  • Foster constructive working relationships with the authorities, the South African National Roads Agency and all interested and affected parties;
  • Ensure that all construction areas and borrow pits are rehabilitated;
  • Ensure that all staff and contractors are appropriately trained to consider the environmental impact of their work.
