Tailings Transportation


A certain company has been appointed to transport the Platinum Tailings from one point to another. The problem is that there are speed bumps which forces the trucks to stop and the bumpy ride causes the tailing to fall on the ground.

Its been more than 3 years and i can imagine the state of the road. The company has been trying to clean the road but it fails as the tailing keeps pilling up next to the road.

During windy seasons, it becomes a mess whereby the dust is all over leading to motorists and pedestrians to inhale the dust. There’s a product which can assist but we’ve been waiting for the Benchmark Foundation to assist us, it’s been 2 years now as covid 19 made it possible for gatherings.
