Transport for Cape Town, the City of Cape Town’s transport authority, will spend about R4 million to resurface a section of Jip de Jager Drive, between Eksteen and Kommissaris streets, in Bellville, from Monday June 20 to Tuesday July 5, weather permitting.
“Roads have a limited lifespan. Given the huge investment that is required for building new infrastructure, we undertake regular maintenance to prolong the longevity of the city’s road network. As such, the roadworks along Jip de Jager Drive involve the maintenance of the existing road base, resurfacing, and ancillary works to prevent further deterioration and potholes,” said mayoral committee member for transport, Brett Herron.
Some of the lanes along this section of Jip de Jager Drive will be closed to traffic for the duration of the roadworks. However, one lane in each direction will be open to traffic at all times.
The closure of some of the lanes will affect traffic in both directions along Jip de Jager Drive, as well as on the adjoining roads in the area.
“I request road users to please make provision for longer travelling times during the next three weeks and to be patient. Once completed, we will all benefit from the new smoother road surface and improved driving conditions,” said Mr Herron.
