NOTIFICATION KOMMETJIE ROAD UPGRADES: OVERNIGHT STOP/GO THURSDAY, 3 MAY 2018
This notification serves to provide information regarding an upcoming overnight Stop/Go on Kommetjie Road between Old Kommetjie Road intersection and Capri Drive so that all parties may plan in advance with regards to accommodating any possible delays in their private schedules.
Please note, that although a Stop/Go system was not anticipated for this contract, the Engineers in consultation with the Contractor have deemed it necessary for safety and technical reasons, and as such, they have scheduled the work to be undertaken at a time that would have the least disruption for the community. In this regard, a traffic count was recently undertaken by HHO to confirm the most suitable times. Details on the need and the location for this exercise are below:
Date: Thursday, 3 May 2018
Time: 19H00 – 05H00 (this means that the Stop/Go will begin on Thursday, 3 May at 7pm and end on Friday, 4 May at 5am)
Location: Kommetjie Road, between Old Kommetjie Road intersection and Capri Drive (see locality map below)
The technical background to this request for a Stop /Go system at night is as follows:
- New 500 mm and 350 mm diameter pipes are being installed to allow for improved water supply to the greater Kommetjie area;
- These pipes are required to cross Kommetjie Road;
- Pipes are not able to be drilled due to hard ground conditions;
- Depth of excavation requires similar side space for safety of motorists and work force;
- Lack of space prevents two way travel operation.
The necessary permits have been acquired from the City of Cape Town to conduct this work at night. Temporary advance warning signs will be erected to inform motorists of the Stop/Go. It is requested that motorists please adhere to the displayed speed limits to ensure the safety of road users and construction workers.
We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
