The City’s Road Infrastructure Management Department will, on 11 July 2022, commence with the resurfacing of a section of Industrial Ring Road in Elsies River. The section to be resurfaced is approximately 1km long and should be done by mid-August, pending unforeseen delays and inclement weather.

The roadworks are scheduled to take place at night from 18:00 until 06:00. It is part of routine maintenance and includes the milling of the existing road surface and replacing it with a new asphalt road surface.

‘We are implementing the works at night to minimise the level of inconvenience to road users and residents. However, residents can expect a level of noise pollution during this time. We appeal to residents to please bear with us during the construction period. Once done, they will enjoy a smoother and safer commuting experience,’said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.

Motorists must please note that traffic moving in both directions will be affected. Flag personnel will direct traffic through temporary detours around the work area.

Work areas will be demarcated to regulate traffic flow and motorists and residents are advised to please exercise extra caution.

Where possible, the City recommends that motorists consider using alternative routes to avoid unnecessary delays and inconvenience.
