The City of Cape Town’s Road Infrastructure Management Department will be commencing with the road resurfacing of various roads in Observatory, Salt River and Woodstock on Tuesday, 3 May 2022. 

The work forms part of regular maintenance to prolong the longevity of the road network in the area. Read more below:

According to the City, the road resurfacing work is anticipated to be completed by Thursday, 2 June 2022, pending unforeseen delays and weather permitting. 

Work will take place between 07:00 and 17:00 from Mondays to Fridays.

The City’s mayoral committee member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas, said they need residents to be patient and cooperative with the workers over the next month as a level of noise pollution can be expected over this time.

“The contractor will be on-site from next week onwards to commence with minor repairs along these roads and will return the following week to start with the resurfacing,” he said.  

 The following roads will be resurfaced during this project:


  •       Barron Street

 Salt River

  •       Greef Street
  •       Junction Road
  •       Kent Street


  •       Kotzee Road

 All road users will be affected, and traffic flow will be impacted in both directions. As such, flag personnel will regulate traffic one direction at a time.

 Congestion along these roads can be expected and road users are urged to consider alternative routes if possible.
