A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment for the proposed construction of the Magalakwena power line, Northwest Province
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Texture Environmental Solutions to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment for the proposed construction of the Magalakwena power line. This is close to Madibeng (Brits) in the Northwest Province. Two options for the route were surveyed.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed no sites of cultural heritage significance. This is probably due to the extensive disturbance of the area by farming and mining activities.
It is proposed that Option 1 be the final route as it is the route of preference. This report is seen as ample mitigation. The proposed development may therefore continue.
