Pipe to be replaced

2019-02-05 06:20

As part of the Kommetjie Road upgrade project the existing 400mm diameter water pipe between 21st Avenue, Fish Hoek and Ou Kaapseweg, which has burst on numerous occasions, is to be replaced soon.

The pipes and fittings have arrived on site and Martin and East is now preparing to clear the route of the new replacement pipeline. This route is along the south side of Kommetjie Road from Ou Kaapseweg and then crosses the westbound carriageway of Kommetjie Road to continue in the median island, crossing Corsair Way, where it enters Sun Valley.

The pipeline ties into an existing valve chamber on the west side of 21st Avenue. Clearing of the route entails the removal of a number of trees and this process will be carried out within a week. Where possible some trees will be trimmed.

In Frigate Crescent, Sun Valley Road widening on the northern road edge will be done between Ou Kaapseweg and No. 41 Frigate Crescent. Along this section of road one tree will be removed and a second tree trimmed.
