Transport and Public Works November 2015 Highlights

(Western Cape Government)

The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works delivers infrastructure and services to the people of the province to promote positive socio-economic outcomes and safe, empowered and connected communities.

The Department has a number of notable achievements to report in November 2015.


Provincial Minister of Health Dr Nomafrench Mbombo joined Provincial Traffic Law Enforcement and the South African Police Service (SAPS) at a #PayDayBlues weekend alcohol blitz roadblock on the N1 highway near Paarl. Hundreds of motorists were stopped by traffic officers, who performed various driver and vehicle checks as well as alcohol breath tests on the night. 

Safer Vehicles, Safer Learners

A bus and a minibus taxi were impounded during a joint learner transport and roadblock blitz on the R43 between Rawsonville and Worcester. Provincial traffic officers stopped 45 vehicles, including seven learner transport vehicles. This was one of the many such operations conducted by the Department every day across the Western Cape.

Proof of Address Now Required for Vehicle Licence Renewals

With effect from 1 November 2015, the National Road Traffic Regulations require that any person wishing to renew a motor vehicle licence or operator card must submit proof of full name, date of birth, identity, residential and postal address. Bodies of persons (such as companies) must submit full details of the body. Western Cape traffic officials have been implementing the new requirements since they came into effect.

We lead in the delivery of government infrastructure and related services BETTER TOGETHER
