We were able to finish the project ahead of schedule with us completing 2000 potholes in 6 weeks. This road is notoriously bad, with many accidents occurring every month. There were over 2000 potholes in the first 6km of road, and the client is hopefully going to grant an extension on this project, so we can complete the full 70 km of road. The Prophalt team worked well in extreme conditions, with morning temperatures starting at -7 degrees Celsius.

Prophalt employed local community staff from this region as part of our social upliftment program to disadvantaged communities in this region. Our upliftment program is growing from strength to strength with us providing new job skills to our disadvantaged communities on an ongoing basis.
