The Johannesburg Roads Agency has urgently closed Iridium street on the West Rand.

The Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) has urgently closed Iridium street on the West Rand after it was damaged by illegal mining activities.

The JRA’s head of infrastructure development, Siyabonga Genu, says the agency on assessment found several cracks, which may lead to a sinkhole.

Genu says repairs are yet to be budgeted for.

We are working towards June 2020 as a completion date. It is less than a kilometre so it should take us about six months to reconstruct the road.

Siyabonga Genu, Head of infrastructure development - JRA

We need to go back to our budgeting process and ask for the budget for the project.

Siyabonga Genu, Head of infrastructure development - JRA

As it stands we looking at about R25m to R30m.

Siyabonga Genu, Head of infrastructure development - JRA

What we have to factor in in our design is that illegal minings will continue to happen, so our design thinking has to accommodate that as well.
