Roadworks on Saldanha Road at the Velddrif/ Cape Town intersection
Motorists are advised that due to road construction activities there will be a temporary deviation of the Saldanha road at the Velddrif/ Cape Town intersection and reduced road width south of the intersection.
The width of the road has already been reduced and traffic will be deviated by mid-September 2018. Traffic will return to the new alignment of the road by August 2019.
The temporary bypass will have two-way traffic with no stop/ go signs on 3,4 m surfaced lanes and 0,9 m shoulders.
It is a provision of the contract that traffic must be accommodated with the least delay and discomfort to the public. No full road closures are allowed. The safety and convenience of the travelling public are of utmost importance and every effort will be made to ensure that all temporary road signs, cones, flag operators and speed controls are maintained and are effective, and that courtesy is extended to the public at all times.
The contractor is required to make use of approved methods to control the movement of equipment and vehicles so as not to constitute a hazard on public roads.
The public is requested to be patient and exercise caution when using the bypasses. Due to relatively sharp S curves, speed will be reduced to 60 km/h. No overtaking will be allowed in these zones and the outer road edges will be demarcated with delineators. The travelling public is urged to keep to the speed limits for their own safety and the safety of the construction workers. The speed limit will be enforced from time to time.
