Easter arrangements for Montagu roadworks
Certain roadworks currently under way in Montagu will be suspended from 7 to 18 April 2017 for the Easter holidays.
The works form part of a 36-month Department of Transport and Public Works contract to rehabilitate and upgrade various sections of the R60 and R62 between Ashton and Montagu through Cogmanskloof. Work on this R583-million contract is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2018.
Minor construction work will continue during this time. A small team will continue installing a stormwater pipe in Du Toit Street. Work will also continue at Voortrekker Bridge, and electrical cables will be installed on the Montagu Primary School grounds.
One of the one-way sections in Long Street (from Du Toit Street to Talana Road) will revert to two-way traffic for this period. This means that, until 19 April 2017, uninterrupted two-way traffic will be allowed from Church Street in the direction of Barrydale.
One-way traffic arrangements will remain in place from Voortrekker Bridge to Church Street, and in Van Riebeeck Street between Brink St and the Voortrekker Bridge.
The construction team will have a small maintenance team on site to ensure that the road remains safe.
