Roadworks commences in Strand this week

Road users in the Strand are warned to be cautious and vigilant of roadworks in their area.

The City of Cape Town’s Urban Mobility Directorate, this week on Monday March 7, proceeded with the second phase of Asanda, Nomzamo and Lwandle Village road rehabilitation

According to the City, the project is anticipated to be complete by middle May 2022, if all goes as planned.

The City is investing nearly R7 million in the second phase of this road rehabilitation project to ensure that the residential roads are rehabilitated to quality roads that are safe to use for all road users.

“We have received very positive responses from the communities who benefited from the first phase of the project and would like to thank all the residents for cooperating so well with the teams on the ground. The City’s Roads Infrastructure Management department is satisfied with the good quality of work done on the project thus far and will ensure that this is carried through to the second phase.

“I have confidence that the community will cooperate with the contractor again and ask that residents please ensure that their motor vehicles and those of their visitors are not parked in the roadway as this could cause delays,” said the City’s cayoral Committee member for urban mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.

Residents and road users in the Strand area are advised that these roadworks will take place in various sections of Strand which include the following:
