Silvermine and Ou Kaapse Weg Upgrade

By January 22, 2017February 27th, 2020City Notifications

Dear Interested & Affected Parties,

Please be advised that construction work will commence on 23rd January 2017 at the Silvermine Road and Ou Kaapseweg Intersection beginning with the excavation of the rock outcrop. This work will assist in alleviating the sight distance concerns at this busy intersection. Advance warning signs including speed reduction signs indicating a 40 kph speed limit through the work zone have been erected. Once this excavation work is underway further work will commence on the western side of Ou Kaapseweg either side of Silvermine Road. This work will provide additional lanes to permit a safe left turn into and left turn out of Silvermine Road.

There will be some after-hours night work required later when pipes are to be installed across the roads at four locations. Detailed information as to when this will occur will be communicated closer to the time.

All the necessary environmental authorisations have been obtained and are being adhered to by the Contractor under the supervision of an Environmental Control Officer (ECO) appointed for this site. Plants and seeds have been harvested and transported to an approved nursery for care and propagation for later replanting. Topsoil is being stripped and will be stored on site at approved locations.

Motorists are advised to obey all temporary road signage during the construction period as there will be slow moving construction equipment entering and exiting the site during normal daytime working hours. The City’s Traffic Services Department will be deploying Traffic Officers on a regular basis to monitor the site and assist with traffic.

For further information please contact:-
Ian McDonald – Resident Engineer – 084 710 3776.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

Warm Regards
