Goodbye to ‘Athlone sisters’

The City of Cape Town has appointed a contractor for the demolition of the Athlone cooling towers.

This follows after reinforced concrete rings surrounding one of the towers became detached and collapsed in February, raising safety concerns near the busy N2 highway.

An estimated cost of about R6.5 million was awarded to Jet Demolition to do the job.

City’s Clive Justus says the construction company is currently on the site in preparation for the work at the end of this month.
