A report on a Phase 1 heritage impact assessment (HIA) for the proposed Sicelo substation and power line in the Meyerton area, Gauteng Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed by MSA Geoservices (Pty) Ltd to conduct a heritage impact assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed Sicelo substation and power line. This is situated at Meyerton in the Gauteng Province. Four alternatives for the route were surveyed.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed three no sites of cultural heritage significance. The area is largely disturbed by past human activities such as agriculture, housing and industries and therefore this comes as no surprise.

From a heritage point of view there is no specific preference for any of the proposed route alternatives. Whichever alternative is decided on, no mitigation is required.
