Sasol launches text notification system for
WESTLAKE--Sasol announced the launch of SasolTEXT, a web-based text
messaging system, developed to provide real-time construction-related updates
to the local community.
SasolTEXT allows residents to sign up to receive notifications about road
reroutes, lane closures, heavy equipment and module transports related to
construction of Sasol’s world-scale ethane cracker project in Westlake,
Louisiana. Additionally, notifications
will be published online at www.sasolnorthamerica.com/Construction.
"We are working closely with the Louisiana Department of Transportation
and Development and local emergency responders, police and fire chiefs to
ensure our efforts are both safe and efficient,” Mike Hayes, manager of public affairs, said. "We encourage residents
to sign up for these notifications. Be safe by being informed.”
Off-site construction efforts currently underway include preparing for
roadway improvements along the project heavy haul route, which Sasol and its
contractors will use to transport large modules and other heavy equipment from
a construction dock off of Sulphur Avenue to Sasol’s project site.
Sasol will widen and strengthen the existing roads on the route to
accommodate the modules and equipment. Utilities, signage and traffic signals
have been relocated where necessary, and road preparations are expected to
Register at www.sasolnorthamerica.com/SasolTEXT.
