Gauteng to officially open the upgraded K73 Allandale Road

The Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG), led by Premier Panyaza Lesufi will on Wednesday, 22 November 2023 officially open the upgraded K73 Allandale Road, in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The multi-million rand road project involved the construction of a dual carriageway of the new road section between Montrose and Allandale Roads, upgrading of Woodmead Drive and Allandale Road as well as the construction of a bridge along the road.

The upgrade of the road has made a significant improvement in traffic flow by alleviating traffic congestion, making commuting and vehicle mobility smoother and more efficient around the Midrand area.

The project provided jobs to local communities and saw 34 SMME sub-contractors awarded construction work such as kerbing, paving, concrete channels, stormwater pipes, subsoils and ancillary works, plant hire, training as well as security.

Media are invited to the launch that is scheduled as follows:

Date: Wednesday, 22 November 2023
Time: 11h00
Venue: Allandale Road, Midrand
