The City of Cape Town’s Urban Mobility Directorate will be resurfacing various roads in the Cape Town CBD from Tuesday, 15 November 2022. Residents can expect the works to continue until Friday, 3 February 2023, pending unforeseen delays and inclement weather.

‘We ask that the community please cooperate with our team on the ground while the project is ongoing. We would like to resurface these portions of the road to provide residents in the area with a safe and smooth road surface. We have measures in place to help direct residents during the construction period and we urge all road users to please comply,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.

The City’s Road Infrastructure Management Department will be milling out the existing road surfacing and replacing it with a new asphalt road surface. This work forms part of regular maintenance to prolong the longevity of the city’s road network.
