A report on a basic assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed Eskom Tekwane North Line, Mpumalanga Province
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Wandima Environmental Services to conduct a basic assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed Tekwane North Eskom line. This is situated in Tekwane North, close to Mbombela in the Mpumalanga Province. Three options for the route were surveyed.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed four sites of cultural heritage significance. The area is however disturbed by past human activities such as housing and agriculture.
From a heritage point of view it is proposed that option B be used. Only one heritage resource was identified on this route, but this can easily be mitigated. This route also runs through an area mostly already disturbed. However it would be possible to use any of the others, but only after the implementation of the indicated mitigation measures.
