Minister simmers to conduct oversight visit at Grabouw’s rooidakke development

24 May 2020


Kindly note due to the inclement weather this event has been postponed. A new date will be announced in due course.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Tomorrow, 25 May 2020, Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Tertuis Simmers will visit the construction site of the Rooidake Housing project in Grabouw.

Minister Simmers said: “Since the alert levels of the disaster declaration as instituted by President Cyril Ramaphosa have been relaxed from level 5 to 4 and “critical public works construction,” which includes public human settlements development projects, have been allowed to recommence, we have to ensure that contractors comply with all the health and safety protocols.

My department has issued a directive to contractors and part of my visit is to ensure these are being adhered to.

I also need to establish which final touches are required on the houses, as they are due to be handed over by 7 June.

ALL MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND. Please note the meeting point from which we will depart at 09:50 to the project site


Date: Monday, 25 May 2020
Time: 09h45 – 11h00
Meeting Point: Grabouw Municipal Office, 1 Abor Drive, Grabouw (Just behind the hospital)
