The City of Cape Town has recently announced a new roadworks project, which will resurface multiple streets in various parts of the city. This project will entail the installation of curbs and channels, removing existing road surfaces, and replacing hot-mix asphalt. There will also be reinstatement and amendment of the road markings.
Resurfacing Work in Simon’s Town
The Urban Mobility Directorate will initiate the resurfacing work in Simon’s Town, particularly on St George’s Street, from Court Road to Flora Steps. The resurfacing work will occur on weekdays between 09:00 and 15:30 to avoid peak traffic times and limit the impact on road users. To accommodate road users, east/southbound traffic on St George’s Street will remain open, while west/northbound traffic will be detoured to Runciman Drive.
Resurfacing Work in Gugulethu and Seawinds
The Roads, Infrastructure, and Management Department will also commence resurfacing work in Gugulethu, particularly on Ngambu Street, Khanya Crescent, Thembani Road, Nompendulo Close Cul De Sac, and Nokwanda Street Cul De Sac. In addition, in Seawinds, a new speed hump with signage will be installed on St Patrick Avenue. The roadworks in these areas will occur Monday to Friday, between 08:00 and 17:00, until the end of May 2023 if all goes as planned.
Roadworks in Mfuleni
In Mfuleni, roadworks will begin this week and be completed by the end of May 2023 if all goes as planned. The resurfacing work will start from O Nqubelani Street, and flag personnel will direct traffic through temporary detours. The resurfacing work will be done half-width, and residents will have access to properties and businesses.
Patience and Support from the Community
The Urban Mobility Directorate of the City of Cape Town has requested commuters, residents, and businesses to be patient while the roadworks are underway. Although the affected streets will not be closed off entirely, there will be lane closures, and residents can expect an increase in their regular travel times.
The City of Cape Town has expressed gratitude to all road users and businesses in the affected areas for their patience and support while the necessary roadworks are underway. The Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas, has also thanked community members for their patience and support, promising to deliver quality work within the specified timeframes.
