Cape Town – Rehabilitation of the Strand sea wall will start in January, the City of Cape Town said on Thursday.

The R180 million project was aimed at protecting Beach Road from windblown sand and frequent flooding.

“Waves, sand and debris often obstruct sections of the road after storms, partly because of the disintegration of the sea wall over the past decades,” Transport for Cape Town mayoral committee member Brett Herron said.

Seawater overflowed into the road at the end of last month.

Construction would take place in three 18-month phases.

Herron said the first phase would take place after the festive season so businesses and holidaymakers would not be affected.

The sea wall would be rehabilitated from the Strand Pavilion to Greenways.
