Main Rd open for holidays

2015-11-24 06:00

Main Road in Kalk Bay is set to be opened to two-way traffic during the festive season.

The stop/go system currently in place along Main Road between the Kalk Bay Harbour entrance and Woolley’s Pool will be temporarily suspended as from Tuesday 15 December until Sunday 24 January.

The initial plan was to reinstate the stop/go system along this section of Main Road after the builders’ holiday on Monday 11 January, explains Mayco member for transport, Brett Herron.

“The roadworks along the section of Main Road between the Kalk Bay Harbour and Woolley’s Pool have, however, been postponed by a further two weeks at the request of our resident organisations and local business owners from the Southern Peninsula. This, in effect, means that Main Road will be open to two-way traffic for a period of at least six weeks,” he says.

In addition, the project team and contractors involved with this phase of the rehabilitation project are investigating a number of options which may enable the City of Cape Town to open this section of Main Road to two-way traffic for a prolonged period during the summer, Herron says.

“We will be able to provide more details once we have concluded the investigation,” he says.

At this stage it is anticipated that the project will be completed just before the summer holidays in December 2017.
