Roadworks on the Porterfield/Link Road and Melkbosstrand Road (R27 update)
Extensive roadworks will be taking place between the intersections of the R27 (West Coast Road) with Porterfield/Link Road and Melkbosstrand Road from 26 to 29 January 2016 due to asphalt surfacing works required.
Please note that delays are expected. Make use of alternative routes where possible.
Traffic will be accommodated through lane merging or partial width closures. No lane merging will be performed on the dual carriageway in the respective directions for the relevant morning and afternoon peak periods. Partial width closures on the single carriageway will allow for two-way traffic throughout the duration of the construction.
Please note that delays are still expected and road users are encouraged to make use of alternative routes where possible.
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, flagmen and speed controls are maintained and are effective, and that courtesy is extended to the public at all times.
The public is requested to be vigilant and exercise caution when using the road, especially during the night time hours.
