Construction update at TRA Facility – 8 June 2022

The construction activities for the first phase of the Mossel Bay UISP is progressing well.  The civil contractor (Entsha Henra) started with construction of the retaining walls at the TRA facility (Temporary Relocation Area). The TRA will consist of 250 housing units together with ablution facilities and storage and will temporarily accommodate the households that will be relocated from the informal settlement areas to make way for the construction of formalised enhanced serviced sites where the households will then again be settled on.
