The City of Cape Town’s “Intelligent Transport System” is proving less effective than previously thought as another truck has fallen victim to Muizenberg’s hungriest bridge.
A truck is currently stuck under the Muizenberg bridge in the direction of Main Road. This is despite the City’s Urban Mobility Directorate installing a 3D laser height monitoring sensor system.
Installed 150m from the intersection with Atlantic Road, the sensor uses an infrared laser beam to measure the height of oncoming vehicles and their load.
It is supposed to work to reduce the number of trucks getting stuck under the bridge.
Bridget’s appetite continues to be insatiable!
