At Nkonka we have spent several months maintaining the gravel roads. We continue to lay down stone retrieved from a nearby quarry in Phinda.
Road Maintenance is an on going project on Nkonka as improper maintenance leads to quick deterioration on the gravel roads, especially in wet weather. Durning the rains water collects on the road surface and softens the crust. This leads to rutting which can become severe if the sub grade begins to soften, vehicles will quickly pound out smaller depressions in the road where water collects and the road will develop potholes.
