R44 roadworks to resume in January

Construction work on Broadway Boulevard (R44) has been suspended and will resume early January.

This as a result of the annual builders’ break, which will see council’s maintaining traffic flow on two lanes in both the northerly and southerly directions during this period. The roadworks, which were taken up in February this year, are being conducted on the De Beers/N2 interchange and the intersection with Strand’s Beach Road.

This is a joint initiative of the City and the South African National Road Agency Limited (Sanral), and is expected to cost R117 million, with council contributing R78 million and Sanral R39 million (“Extended upgrade of Broadway”, DistrictMail, 21 March).

It is scheduled to be completed by next August; once done, there will be three lanes in both directions. For now, the City of Cape Town said in a statement, the contractor has opened two lanes in both directions, using the space currently available, to ease traffic flow during the construction period.

“The intersections on this section of road will be mostly unrestricted and any limitations will be of a minor nature,” the statement reads.

“The upgrade of Broad­way Boulevard is part of the City’s plans to address the increase in traffic volumes in this area.”

Upgrading Broadway Boulevard has been phased in, with two parts already completed – a dual-carriageway road between Beach Road and Main Road, Strand, along with the upgrade of the intersection at Altena Road and the remainder of Broadway Boulevard up to Sir Lowry’s Pass Road in Gordon’s Bay as a single carriageway road.

“The area is still under construction, but we are doing our best to minimise the disruption to the flow of traffic during the festive period,” said Felicity Purchase, Mayoral Committee member for Transport.

“One of our priorities is to deliver basic services that will improve the lives of our residents. I am glad that these lanes can remain open ahead of the busiest time of the year, when we expect an increase in visitors to Strand and Somerset West. This means our residents, visitors and motorists will be able to access their recreational facilities with relative ease.”
