Background
  • The preliminary estimate of the entire development including professional fees, and escalation was R1.9m in December 2008. These costs included preparatory projects for fencing off the construction site, relocation of tenants from Border Post to a temporary Housing Complex, and preparation of temporary Border Post. The Department held a meeting on the 04th December 2008 to advice the Consultants about financial constraints to carry out the entire development at once. Only the Main Border Facility was to be prioritised at the estimate costs of R400m.

Background
  • In January 2009 it became clear that National Treasury would not adjust MTEF allocation for Lebombo. A decision was taken to only implement Civil Works Project (Project N) with minor renovation for offices/ processing offices in preparation for 2010 World Cup on South African Side of the Border. The implementation of this project would also serve as the Phase 1 of the One Stop Border Post. The DPW executive management held a briefing meeting with Mozambique Government about the decision and its implication and advised Mozambique to prioritise undertake same improve within their side of the border.

  • Estimate Costs of implementation: R150m (excluding construction based escalation). The tender for Project N was advertised in March 2009 and awarded the same year.
