Abstract: The primary objective of the study discussed in this paper was to assess the different alternatives to the provision and maintenance of a good gravel wearing course, in financial and economic terms as well as suitability for labour-based operations. As part of the Gundo Lashu Programme for Labour Intensive Rural Roads Maintenance that is currently being implemented in Limpopo Province, the training of 24 emerging contractors in rehabilitation of rural gravel roads was carried out. These emerging contractors are currently executing larger Standard Contracts after which they will emerge into the open market.
