Progress on the Kommetjie Road Project is going well, reports the City’s Congestion Management Programme. It is one of two projects that have been prioritised to facilitate easier road usage.

Completion of the project, which started in 2016, is set for 2020.

“The projects were implemented with the residents and motorists in mind.

“All road users will be able to use the road safely, whether on foot, bicycle or in a car,” said the City’s Mayco member for transport, Felicity Purchase.

Listed are the tasks that have been completed thus far:

. Frigate Crescent has been reconstructed and reopened to traffic;

. the Palm Avenue/Kommetjie Main Road intersection has been reconstructed and reopened to traffic;

. the road widenings and stabilised gravel layer works on the southbound carriageway of Ou Kaapse Weg from Noordhoek Main Road to the 4-way-stop have been completed;

. about 2 600 tons of bitumen has been laid on the eastbound carriageway of Kommetjie Main Road from Living Hope towards the four–way stop; and the eastbound lane of Noordhoek Main Road from Montrose to the signalised intersection;

. stabilised gravel layer works were also completed on Noordhoek Main Road from Houmoed Avenue to Montrose Close.

“Roadworks are always inconvenient and I want to thank all residents and motorists for their patience during the construction period.

“There are only a few months to go now before you can enjoy the benefits of these projects,” said Purchase.
