Southern suburb pedestrians can blow a sigh of relief as, the City’s Road Infrastructure Management Department, is set to commence with the installation of traffic calming measures in various areas in the south region.
From Tuesday, 23 August 2022, the work will run simultaneously, and take approximately between one and ten days to complete.
The work entails the installation of speed humps, raised intersections and pedestrian crossings that will be implemented in the following areas:
- Ladies Mile in Bergvliet Queen Victoria and Milner Roads in Claremont
- Bergvliet Road and Firgrove Way in Meadowridge Harvery, Lancaster
- Leincester Roads in Wynberg
According to the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas, most of the installations will be implemented around schools to slow down traffic, with the goal of making it safer for more vulnerable pedestrians such as children walking and riding to school and cyclists.
Quintas concluded by saying:“They will also help boost livability of the areas and contribute toward making the city a safer place to live.”
