Public service announcement for those of you that live in Camps Bay or travel through it on a regular basis…Camps Bay Drive will be closed for 5 months due to a major upgrade that will take place from 20th April to the end of September this year. That’s if everything goes according to plan. The City of CT will be doing major road works and have warned residents to expect major delays.
Have no idea yet on the actual road closures and how residents above the drive will access their homes, but will update you when i find out.
“Camps Bay Drive has not been refurbished for the past 30 years,” Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport in Cape Town, said. “This major upgrade will significantly improve the road condition and safety for road users and cannot be postponed any longer.
“The roadworks will unfortunately cause significant delays and inconvenience. I therefore want to urge road users to familiarise themselves with the alternative routes well in advance. About 14 000 vehicles travel along Camps Bay Drive every day and commuters will have to be accommodated on other roads to enter or exit Camps Bay. It is therefore very important to expect delays and to take this into account when planning your journey.” [iol]
