  •        The current non-compliant speedhumps need to be replaced with speedhumps which are compliant with the specifications of the Transport Directorate, this being the City’s road infrastructure

5    Ward 105: Protea Road, Durbanville (TNDN2380)Request for traffic calming requested from La Gratitude Retirement Village
NOT SUPPORTED due to there not being any schools or public facilities which may attract significant volumes of vulnerable pedestrian activity in this area.

6    Ward 21:  Two requests were received iro Ibis Street, Sonstraal Heights, one for Ibis Street (Ref No: TNDN2396) received from Francois Kriel (2x speed humps) and one from Ms Hannelie Strydom for Ibis and Mariete Close, Sonstraal Heights (TNDN2379) (raised intersection)
NOT BE SUPPORTED for reasons as set out below:
  • The City of Cape Town Traffic Calming Policy (2016) aims to protect the most vulnerable road users, where they occur in the largest numbers on Class 4 Collector Streets and Class 5 Local Streets within residential areas and in the vicinity of public facilities.
  • Vulnerable road users can be considered road users whom are unable to reasonably understand the potential risks within a road environment, such as school children.
  • Roads adjacent to and leading to schools are therefore the primary focus over the next few years.
Based on the assessment there are no schools or public facilities which may attract significant volumes of vulnerable pedestrian activity and therefore traffic calming cannot be considered by TND at this point in time along these roads. 
Reasoning for decision:
  • This road only carries local traffic.
  • There are no pedestrian desire lines or pedestrian routes,
7    Ward 105: Van der Westhuizen Avenue between Louw and Lindenberg Streets, Valmary Park  (TNDN2395)  - Request received for traffic calming.
That traffic calming measures NOT BE SUPPORTED for reasons as set out below, HOWEVER, road marking iro one (1x) RTM4 zebra crossing be painted along van der Westhuizen Street and the cost be borne by the line department. .
  • No additional traffic calming measures are required at this point in time,
  • One RTM4 zebra crossing should be painted along van der Westhuizen Street (Note:  Cost to be borne by the line department).
8    Ward 112: Belvedere Road and Vissershok Street, Durbanville (both directions) (TNDN 2395) - Request 3-way stop on Vissershok / Belvedere Street, Durbanville.
