The City of Cape Town’s Transport Directorate will be resurfacing various roads in the Southern and Atlantic Seaboard areas for the next three weeks. The work commenced on Monday, November 9.

The resurfacing is part of routine maintenance work and will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, pending unforeseen delays and weather conditions. Traffic moving in both directions will be affected and flag personnel will manage traffic by means of a stop-and-go system, one direction at a time.

Work areas will be demarcated to regulate traffic flow as well as pedestrians.

“Residents will be allowed to park their vehicles in driveways as usual, if and when access is available. However, vehicles parked in the road and obstructing the maintenance work, will be moved or towed away,” said the City’s MayCo Member for Transport, Felicity Purchase.

The following roads and streets are affected:

  1. Ave St Leon, Bantry Bay
  2. Baris Road, Walmer Estate
  3. Bay Road, Mouille Point
  4. Chester Road, Walmer Estate
  5. Coronation Road, Walmer Estate
  6. Glengariff Road, Three Anchor Bay
  7. Hill Road, Green Point
  8. Hofmeyr Road, Three Anchor Bay
  9. London Road, Observatory
  10. Norwich Avenue, Observatory
  11. Ravine Road, Bantry Bay
  12. Ritchie Street, Walmer Estate
  13. Romney Street, Green Point

“Roadworks always come with some level of inconvenience and although no congestion is anticipated with these works, we advise road users to consider alternative routes to avoid disappointment. We also want to appeal to the residents and motorists to comply with the signage in place during the construction period to ensure that the work proceeds unhindered.

“This will help us deliver the service that will improve the conditions of our roads and give residents better access to their areas. Therefore, I want to thank the residents in advance for their patience and cooperation,” Purchase said.

Residents are reminded to call the Transport Information Centre (TIC) for more information and/or logging complaints about road infrastructure.

The TIC can be contacted on 0800 65 64 63. It is available 24/7 and is toll-free from a landline or a cell phone.
