The Swakopmund town council has a number of developmental projects set for the Tamariskia township for the remainder of 2018/2019 financial year.
During a public meeting recently at the Swakopmund town hall, acting CEO Marco Swartz said the developmental projects include the upgrading of the Tamariskia Sports Field’s ablution facilities, the replacement of the midblock sewer, the surfacing of streets and roads as well as the rehabilitation of the old sewerage treatment plant.
Council has budgeted a total of N$800 000 for the upgrading of the Tamariskia Sports Field’s ablution facilities.
“The scope of the project is to upgrade and extend the current change house and ablution facility. The designs and bid document for the project have been completed, and the construction is expected to commence in November,” said Swartz.
The town council also budgeted more than N$6 million for the replacement of a midblock sewer in the township.
“The streets identified to receive attention in this project include Ocks Laan, Baumgarten Street, Brockerhoff Laan and Franziska van Neel Street. Designs and bid documents for the project have been completed, and there is an invitation for bids up to the end of October, while construction commences in January 2019,” he said.
A total amount of N$5 million has been budgeted for the surfacing of streets and roads in Swakopmund, but with priority to streets and roads around schools.
According to the CEO, a portion of Mossie Street, near Atlantic Primary School, has been identified for upgrading. Preliminary layouts have also been done and the town council is busy with the full design and costing of the project.
