Written by Liesl. Posted in Latest News

RUSTENBURG HERALD - RUSTENBURG - As the custodians of the Bakwena N1N4 Platinum highway, Bakwena carries out regular routine/preventative maintenance to keep the roads that we are responsible for in a condition that ensures the safety of all road users.
Road maintenance has economic and social benefits and if not well maintained, it may lead to disastrous effects for individual motorists and the whole country. It is far cheaper to do regular maintenance than to have to do major repairs following more serious damage.
