F46 Rand Water Pipeline Project.

Scope :

Construct of F46 Rand Water Pipeline Project.

project was running late due to delays caused by the depth the contractors are working at, especially on Amarant Street in Weltevreden Park, where they hit rock. The major delay on the Amarant Street was because they had to get the pipe underneath the stream. The process required some soil to be between the stream and the pipe otherwise it would be too dangerous to work. They are working at the depth of 9m. A little while ago they hit rock, didnt want to use conventional explosives and decided to break the rock chemically This takes time, as we have to drill into the blue granite which is a very hard rock, then we put chemicals in the holes and wait for the rock to crack. We can only do this in sections of 1,5 metres at a time. have to then clear the rock face and start the process all over again.
