Quarry to be rehabilitated

STANFORD – A sandstone quarry situated on the mountainside along the R43 between Hermanus and Stanford will be rehabilitated once the demand for the product is depleted, and the quarry reaches the end of its life span said Anton Barnard, Managing Director of the Southern Cluster at Afrimat.

The quarry was started in the late ’90s and converted into the Afrimat fold in 2011. An application was made by the company to extend the quarry to the upper regions of the property, and this was approved in 2019.

The Overstrand Municipality approved the extension on 31 October on the basis that both Cape Nature and the Stanford Heritage Association would have access to regular updates, as the extension would be visible on the R43 scenic route.

Liz Hochfelden, chairperson of the Stanford Heritage Committee, said the committee had sent its approval on Friday 5 April 2019.

The roadworks on the R43, between Hermanus and Stanford is supplied by Afrimat who was appointed by the province to supply construction aggregate to complete the roadworks. Barnard says the Stanford quarry supplied 70% of the aggregate for the completion of the layer works project.

The material for the road is supplied mostly by the extended quarry that is currently visible from the Hermanus coastline.

Barnard confirms rehabilitation at the lower part of the Stanford Quarry had already begun.

Barnard adds that the visibility of the hole will be reduced with a berm and blending vegetation will be planted.
