New cat's eyes (retro-reflective road markings) on Ou Kaapse Weg

The City of Cape Town has piloted new illuminated and solar-powered road markings on Ou Kaapse Weg.

The City's Mayoral Committee Member for Transport Brett Herron says they are currently testing the technology for its effectiveness.

They are something that we are busy piloting and testing. They are basically solar-powered studs. The white ones indicate a passing lane and the red ones indicate a solid line. They should respond to headlights and should be a solid shine of light.
