Cape Town - Chapman’s Peak Drive is open for now and will be closely monitored, the provincial department of transport and public works said on Monday.

The road and toll gate were closed earlier on Monday due to the bad weather.

"In order to protect the safety of road users, the road is expected to be closed every time it rains during the winter period, and when certain weather-related thresholds are exceeded.

"Motorists and other road users are urged to make use of Old Kaapse Weg as an alternative route," spokesperson Byron la Hoe said in a statement.

Road users should follow Chapman’s Peak Drive on Twitter @ChapmansPeakSA to receive daily updates regarding the status of Chapman's Peak Drive.
