Kalk Bay stop-and-go system ends

The City of Cape Town’s transport authority announced that the stop-and-go system on Kalk Bay Min Road will come to an end by close of business on Friday 16 September, if all goes according to plan.

Councillor Brett Herron, the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, says although they can't predict the future, the stop-and-go is to be permanently suspended.

By Saturday, the two way flow of traffic is expected to be reinstated.

The project tarted nine years ago, and is expected to be completed by the the end of 2017. The roadworks until the end of next year will not affect traffic flow, says Herron.

Although the project has taken almost ten years to complete, he says it has run slightly ahead of the proposed schedule.

It was not only roadworks, but we replaced all municipal services and expanded the capacity of services under the ground. They would last the length of time as this new road way, for about 30 years, and we wouldn't have to disrupt those residents again

Brett Herron, MAYCO for Transport
