Camps Bay Drive will get its first revamp in 30 years.
Construction will start on Monday, 20 April and will continue until the end of September.
Drivers of the 14 000 vehicles who use Camps Bay Drive daily can expect massive delays and will have to take alternative routes (please obey signboards).
The Camps Bay MyCiti routes won’t be affected at all as a stretch of the road will be made available for the buses.
The major upgrade will cost R20-million and aims to vastly improve safety on this extremely narrow, busy road.
Improvements to Camps Bay Drive
Camps Bay Drive will be 1.4 metres wider on Table Mountain’s side between Geneva Drive and Rontree Avenue.
Camps Bay Drive’s centre line will shift, widening each lane by 700 centimetres.
The City will remove the top 25 centimetres of road surface and replace it with recycled material and asphalt.
The City will make corners less sharp in order for buses to safely pass.
- No road widening is planned between Rontree Avenue and Houghton Road. The dangerous curve at Rontree Avenue will for the time being remain as is. The road surface, however, will get an upgrade.
