The City of Cape Town’s Transport Directorate will, on 7 June 2021, commence with the resurfacing of various roads in Blaauwbergstrand, Milnerton and Atlantis. The work is scheduled to take place from Monday to Friday between 07:30 and 17:00 with the provisional completion date being 25 June 2021, pending unforeseen delays and inclement weather.

Work in Millerton will be implemented along the following roads:

  • Knysna Road between Union Road and Koeberg Road
  • Langerman Avenue between Loxton Road and Knysna Road
  • Union Road between Indwe Street and Boundary Road

Work in Blaauwbergstrand will be implemented along Ferguson Street Popham Street and between Ferguson and Pelegrini Streets.

Roadworks in Atlantis will be implemented along Mexican Street between Kent Crescent and Montagu Street, Saxonsea.

The works are implemented as part of our road maintenance programme, which seeks to ensure that Cape Town roads are durable and safer for our residents and motorists. Regular road maintenance is pivotal in prolonging the network’s lifespan to ensure people and goods can move with ease.

The work will be carried out concurrently as part of one project.

At Koeberg Road, the top asphalt layer will be removed and the base underneath will be replaced with Bitumen Treated Base (BTB) before the road surface is resurfaced with asphalt.

On Knysna, Langerman and Union Roads, the top asphalt layer of the roads is being replaced by a new asphalt surface layer in a mill and fill process.

Motorists and residents are advised that traffic moving in both directions will be affected and flag personnel will regulate traffic in one direction at a time.

Also, work areas will be temporarily demarcated to regulate traffic flow and vehicles may be parked in the demarcated area after 18:00 provided that they are removed before 06:30 to avoid vehicles obstructing the construction works to facilitate a smooth running project. Roadworks always come with a level of inconvenience. We ask residents and motorists to please work with us and to exercise extra caution and comply with the signage displayed around the construction sites.

Although we do not anticipate traffic congestion in the area, we recommend that road users consider alternative routes where possible.
