(a-c) With reference to Alexkor’s mandate to develop Alexander Bay into a fully occupied town, the details are outlined below.

Civil engineering services:

•    New sewer reticulation network and sewage pump stations,
•    New installation and rehabilitation of existing water reticulation network,
•    Upgrading of storm water system,
•    Construction of a new and raw water reservoir,
•    Establishment of a new production borehole,
•    Rehabilitation/Resurfacing of all streets,
•    Upgrading of existing solid waste disposal site, and
•    Rehabilitation and closing of one solid waste disposal site. This part of the project is 100%    
      completed.

Electrical engineering services:

•    Upgrading of the medium voltage network to 11kV,
•    Upgrading of all sub-stations,
•    Provide new individual service connections to all houses,
•    Service and repair streetlights, and
•    This part of the project is 100% completed except for the change-over.

Construction of the waste water treatment works is in progress and 90% of the excavations are completed. The delay was as a result of the relevant water licence being issued later than expected by the Department of Water Affairs.

Mechanical and electrical installations for pump stations are 100% completed. The houses and infrastructure were upgraded to comply with municipal standards. 

The handover of the town is expected to take place before the end of the 2012/13 financial year.
