O.R. Tambo International is in the process of rehabilitating certain areas
within the airport.
The project is being undertaken as a preventative measure to avoid damage to
the underlying layers in the pavement support structure, which if not attended
to, may result in the need for reconstruction, instead of rehabilitation.
Reconstruction would require closure of sections of the roads for extended
periods while the damaged roads are being re-built. However, rehabilitation will
help avoid extended road closures. The ultimate benefit will be a smoother
driving experience for airport users.
The works undertaken will also result in the continued serviceability of the
The areas to be rehabilitated include:
• Landside Cargo Area (both outside and inside)
• Access roads to the
• Access road to Super South gate
• Super South Car
• Terminal Building Car Parking areas (open areas)
Cargo Car Parking areas
• ATNS Car Parking Area
Temporary speed humps will be installed while the road works are in progress,
with permanent speed humps being reinstated once the work is completed.
To avoid any further inconvenience, movement of construction equipment will
be done outside peak traffic hours.
The expected project completion date is 31 July 2013.
Patience and support in this regard would be greatly appreciated, as we work
towards creating a safer and more comfortable driving experience for all airport
users and the airport community at large.
