The City of Cape Town’s Road Infrastructure Management Department will commence with a road resurfacing project in Tokai this Sunday,17 September 2023. Work is expected to be completed in early November 2023, weather permitting. Read more below:
The roadworks will take place from Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 15:30 during the day and the night work will take place between 20:00 and 05:00. This way the teams are able to avoid creating congestion during peak traffic times
The following roads will be resurfaced:
- Steenberg Road from Reddam Circle to Tokai Road
- Orpen Road from Tokai Road to Spaanschemat River Road
- Firgrove Way from Spaanschemat River Road to Ladies Mile Road
- The following work will be done:
- Trimming of overhead tree branches
- Relaying of kerb and channel
- Trimming of side drains (Firgrove Way only)
- Resurfacing of the road with asphalt
- Reinstating road markings
The asphalt resurfacing work will be done at night on Steenberg Road, Orpen Road and the section of Firgrove Way between Spaanschemat River Road and the Cape Academy.
The remainder of Firgrove Way will be resurfaced during the day with an intent to do this work during the Public School holidays.
‘We would like to advise the public and business entities of roadworks along these roads in Tokai over the next two months. Our Roads Infrastructure Management team in the district will be very busy resurfacing these roads, residents can therefore expect a level of noise pollution during this time. We ask that road users please remain patient with our teams as they try to complete the job as efficiently as possible. This is part of our ongoing efforts to maintain Cape Town’s vast road network, which is one of our biggest assets,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.
During the resurfacing work, traffic will be accommodated in half-widths under Stop/Go temporary traffic controls. Commuters are advised to be cautious and to slow down when approaching the areas where work is under way.
