NOTIFICATION KOMMETJIE ROAD UPGRADE: CUTTING DOWN AND REMOVAL OF TREES

 

Dear I&AP,

 

As part of the Kommetjie Road upgrade project the existing 400 mm dia water pipe, which has burst on numerous occasions, is to be replaced between 21st Avenue, Fish Hoek and Ou Kaapseweg. The pipes and fittings have arrived on site and Martin and East is now preparing to clear the route of the new replacement pipeline. This route is along the south side of Kommetjie Road from Ou Kaapseweg and then crosses the west bound carriageway of Kommetjie Road to continue in the median island, crossing Corsair Way where it enters Sun Valley. The pipeline then ties into an existing valve chamber on the west side of 21stAvenue.

Clearing of the route will entail the removal of a number of trees and this process will be carried out within a week.  Where possible some trees will be trimmed where they are not directly on the line of the pipe trench.

In Frigate Crescent, Sun Valley road widening on the northern road edge will be done between Ou Kaapseweg and No.41 Frigate Crescent. Along this section of road one tree will be removed and a second tree trimmed. This process will be part of the tree removal operation along Kommetjie Road.

 

–       Kommetjie Road upgrade team.
