urban mobility infrastructure upgrade

The City of Cape Town is set to embark on a significant infrastructure upgrade in the bustling Bellville area. The Urban Mobility Directorate has recently announced a major revitalization project involving the roadworks along Boulevard Park, Hardekraaltjie, and Mill Street. This project will commence on May 29th, 2023, and is scheduled to be completed by June 22nd, 2023. As a result, residents and businesses should prepare for increased travel times and a temporary rise in noise pollution levels.

Infrastructure Upgrade for Long-Term Benefits

This initiative is part of the City of Cape Town’s proactive stance to maintain and enhance the longevity of its road network. The project will involve milling the existing road surfaces on selected industrial roads in Bellville and replacing them with new asphalt layers. The roads affected by this project are Boulevard Park, Hardekraaltjie, and Mill Road.

Managing Traffic Flow

To minimize disruption, several measures have been put in place to manage traffic flow effectively. Flag personnel will be stationed to direct traffic through temporary detours around the work area. Additionally, work areas will be clearly demarcated to facilitate the smooth regulation of traffic. Vehicles parked in the road and obstructing the maintenance work will be moved or towed as required.

Lane Closures and Road User Safety

The affected roads will not be entirely closed; instead, “Stop and Go” lane closures will be implemented to ease congestion. Road users are encouraged to abide by the traffic accommodation signage and speed limits in the specified areas. Upon completion, all road markings that existed before the resurfacing work will be reinstated, ensuring continuity and familiarity for road users.

Community Cooperation

Councillor Rob Quintas, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, has called for the community’s cooperation throughout the project’s duration. In a display of genuine concern for the well-being of the residents and businesses in the area, he emphasized the necessity of resealing these portions of the road to provide a safe and smooth road surface.

Preparing for the Construction Period

In anticipation of the construction period, the City urges all road users to pay close attention to road signs and factor in longer travel times on these routes. For additional information, the Transport Information Centre can be reached at 0800 65 64 63 or via email at transport.info@capetown.gov.za.

The revitalization of District 3 Industrial Roads in Bellville demonstrates the City of Cape Town’s commitment to proactive urban planning and the enhancement of its infrastructure. As the project progresses, the community can look forward to a safer, smoother, and more efficient road network that will undoubtedly contribute to the area’s overall growth and development.
