Roadworks suspended

The work on the R27 and M19 (near Melkbosstrand) will be temporarily suspended during August to comply with contract stipulations on all seal work during the winter months.

According to a statement released by the Department of Transport and Public Works contract stipulations enforce an embargo on all seal work from mid-May to mid-September due to low temperatures and unfavourable weather conditions generally experienced through this period.

All seal work on the contract ceased in mid-May but appurtenant works continued and were completed by the end of July.

The contractor will start with the remaining seal work in mid-September and be complete by the end of November.

Temporary traffic signs have been erected along the route and motorists are urged to exercise caution. Call 071 536 2077 for more information.
