Road maintenance in Clifton

Roadworks are taking place in Clifton.

Roadworks in Victoria Road, Clifton, started on Monday, December 7.

The repairs will include infilling potholes and fixing concrete defects.

Work will take place between 8am and 5pm from Monday to Saturday and is scheduled to take two weeks to complete.

Traffic moving in both directions will be affected and flag personnel will regulate traffic in one direction at a time through a stop-and-go system.

The City of Cape Town said no congestion is expected, but it is recommended that road users consider alternative routes.

The Mayoral committee member for transport, Felicity Purchase said the road maintenance programme was delayed due to the national lockdown as roadworks were not considered as an essential service on Alert Level 5.

“I am happy with the way the roadworks are progressing in the different areas since we were allowed to have 100% staff capacity. Our road network is one of the City’s biggest assets, it ensures that people and goods can move around. Thus, we are committed to doing regular maintenance so that we can prolong the longevity of our roads. I also want to appeal to residents to be patient and work with us by adhering to the displayed signage around the construction sites while we are working on improving their roads,”she said.
