R60 million Bosmansdam upgrade complete

Traffic congestion should decrease following the upgrades on Bosmansdam Road.

Upgrades to the stretch of
road between Koeberg Road
and Montague Gardens
have been completed. 

The R60 million project
includes two carriageways,
upgraded pavements and
four lanes. 
The first phase of the
project – the eastbound
two-lane carriageway – ran
from April 2018 to July 2019
and cost R43 million. 
The second phase,
from November last year,
included the rehabilitation
of the westbound two-lane
carriageway between Koeberg Road and Montague
Gardens. 
Felicity Purchase,
mayoral committee member for transport, said
lockdown had delayed the
original completion date
of June. 
The upgrades would
reduce congestion and
greatly improve access to
a developing commercial
and industrial zone, she
said. 
“The new road also
boasts solid pavement
structures, durable road
surfaces and pedestrian
comfort to give all users a
safe and great experience,”
she said.
Both the new and the
rehabilitated carriageways
had been built to last for
at least another 15 to 20
years, she said, thanking
the construction team and
road users who had had
to endure driving in a single lane while the work was
being done.
