Carl Cronje Drive work to last until month-end

Motorists can expect lane closures during construction work on Carl Cronje Drive. The Bellville Velodrome is located on the road.

Motorists can expect lane closures while the City resurfaces a section of Carl Cronje Drive in Bellville.

Work on the road, between Bill Bezuidenhout Drive and Old Oak Road, is expected to last until the end of the month.

Both northbound and southbound carriageways will be resurfaced, according to mayoral committee member for transport Rob Quintas.

“The work will take place at night between 8pm and 5am from Monday to Saturday, to limit the impact on road users and traffic. The resurfacing and associated work will take about three weeks,” he said.

Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District chairman Derek Bock said it was good that the City was catching up on a backlog of retarring and pothole repairs.

The VRCID includes the N1 on Durban Road, Steenbras Road in Parow, Stikland Railway Bridge and the Tienie Meyer bypass in Bellville.

Yolanda Fritz, a member of the Oakdale Neighbourhood Watch, said roads and potholes in their area had been repaired recently.

Mr Quintas asked motorists to comply with signage around the construction area so that the project could be completed without disruptions or delays.
