Resealing works on the R304 between Philadelphia and Adderley roads

10 February 2016

For a period of eight months, the Department of Transport and Public Works will be resealing a 25 km portion of the R304 between Philadelphia and Adderley roads. This R38 million project started in November 2015 and is scheduled for completion in mid-2016. Up to 3 000 vehicles travel on this road every day, including 587 heavy vehicles.

Work on the project include the resealing of the existing road and repairs to gravel shoulders and side drains. Maintenance work will also be done on all bridges and culverts along this stretch.

General traffic management

There will be half-width construction with stop/ go operations during the day and a traffic light system at night.

Possible delays

Motorists can expect weather-related delays.

Empowerment and job creation

The Department is committed to providing Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) work opportunities and to developing emerging contractor businesses. It is expected that a total of 5 500 person-days of work will have been created on the project for people living in the City of Cape Town municipal area. A total of 12% of the contract value is earmarked for targeted contractor businesses in the Western Cape.
