(2) New Police Stations to be built as mentioned in paragraph (1) are currently in pre-construction stages, (eg. site clearance or planning) and not under construction as yet.
(3) The projected project cost listed above is based on the current cost unit rand value for the project. The cost will escalate, due to inflation and material price increases, which cannot be accurately estimated at this time. The real cost of the projects will only be known after the closure of the bids. It should further be noted that even after the awarding of the bid, some escalation in price is likely, and the standard construction contract used (JBCC Series 2000) makes provision for this in the form of a Contract Price Adjustment Provision (CPAP) to the Contract. This escalation is necessitated, due to contracts running over extended periods of months and even years.
