Boyes Drive roadwork delayed

Please be advised that works on Boyes Drive have been delayed due to a shortage in the production and supply of bitumen currently being experienced country wide. Bitumen is used for the manufacture of asphalt premix for road surfacing.

As a result, the Contractor was only able to complete two days’ work on Boyes Drive last week. Work was scheduled to commence again today (Monday) but the required bitumen (60/70 pen) is still not available. The bitumen supplier has advised the earliest availability being Thursday, 13 October 2011.

Consequently no work will take place on Boyes Drive today.

The Contractor is currently investigating using another variant of bitumen (80/100 with SASOBIT). If this is possible, they may be in a position to restart work tomorrow (Tuesday) but at this stage we are unable to confirm this.
