Several developments for Mondesa were discussed during a public meeting called by the Swakopmund municipality at the Meduletu hall recently.

According to the general manager for engineering services at the Swakopmund municipality, Clarence McClune, several plots have been availed for the construction of houses through the Build Together Programme.

“Town council allocated 120 erven in Extension 26 for the Build Together Programme. In this financial year, town council will construct 147 houses for beneficiaries of the programme.”

Two blocks in Extension 26 have also been allocated to the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia, with 34 beneficiaries of the savings group benefitting, with blocks being subdivided and serviced by members.

McClune said that the layout, design and the bid document for the SME industrial park on Erf 4864 have been completed.

“The park will have 12 office blocks, eight warehouses and a car wash. Construction will commence in March 2020, and should take 10 to 12 months to complete.”

Another development that is sure to benefit residents of Mondesa, is the relocation of the sewer line near the Multi-Purpose Centre. Items like knives, forks and fishing nets which could have been dumped into the system by residents, were found in the sewer line by the contractor.

Progress currently stands at 87% and it is anticipated to be complete on 9 December. “The contractor is currently arranging for rock defragmenting as an alternative to conventional blasting,” McClune said.

The sewer line, which runs along the Helao, Festus !Gonteb, Eric Tjiriange and //Kuruseb streets, is also set to be relocated. Designs for the sewer line have been completed and the open nation bid (ONB) document is being reviewed. The anticipated date for the ONB process is set to start on 7 February 2020. The project duration is expected to be 10 months.
