The City of Cape Town announced that its Road Infrastructure Management Department will soon commence with the refurbishment of a section of Beach Road in Strand.
According to the City, the construction work is scheduled for Wednesday, 6 April to 26 May and will take place from Monday to Friday between 9am and 3:30pm.
The following sections of Beach Road will be affected:
- Lourens River Bridge to Thompson Street
- Melkbaai Street to Da Gama Street
- Main Road circle to 36 Beach Road (Haarlem Street)
- 16B Beach Road (Haarlem Street) to Hofmeyer Street.
The first section to be resurfaced is between Lourens River Bridge and Thompson Street, followed by Main Road and 36 Beach Road, 16B Beach Road and Hofmeyer street and the last section to be completed will be Melkbaai Street to Da Gama Street.
Regular road maintenance is not only pivotal in prolonging the City’s road network, but also improves the overall safety of road users, said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Rob Quintas.
During this period, motorists should consider using alternative routes, where possible, to avoid unnecessary delays and inconvenience, Quintas adds.
“We will have flag personnel directing traffic flow through temporary detours around the construction area.
“We urge residents and motorists to comply with the signage displayed around the construction area, reduce their speed and exercise extra caution while work is underway,” Quintas expressed.
