Dido Valley land claimants one step closer to coming homeEvery effort is being made to ensure that the Dido Valley housing development remains on schedule as far as possible.<p>​The civil works for the 600 houses in the City’s Dido Valley housing development in Simon’s Town have been completed. This means that if all goes according to plan with the approval of beneficiaries and tender processes, the construction of the top structures will commence in April 2018. </p><p>Beneficiaries of this project will include residents of Redhill, 100 Luyolo land claimants, and those longest on the housing database from the Simon’s Town area.</p><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="" style="width:576px;" /></figure><p> ‘The Luyolo and Redhill communities were torn apart as a result of the forced removals in 1967 and were moved to Ocean View and Gugulethu. It is therefore heart-warming to stand on site and know that this meaningful project is on track. </p><p>'We will continue to make every effort to ensure that this project remains on schedule as far as possible so that we can bring our residents back home, where they belong,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Area South, Councillor Eddie Andrews, who recently did a site inspection.</p><p>The construction phase for the top structures is expected to take 24 months.</p><p>‘The R135 million that we are spending includes all civil engineering services, bulk earthworks, top structures and electrical reticulation. The beneficiary approvals are currently under way and once 80% finalised, the tender processes for the construction of the top structures can commence as well as the electricity reticulation,’ said Councillor Andrews.</p><p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="" style="width:576px;" /></figure></span> Last year the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan (ODTP) was adopted by Council to improve how the administration works, which will enhance service delivery to our residents. One of the key goals of the ODTP is reversing the legacy of Apartheid spatial planning.</p><p>‘This project is an example of our ODTP words in action. As a local government, we want to assure our beneficiaries, particularly our land claimants, that we are committed to reconciliation and redressing the inequalities of the past.</p><p>'We are looking forward to celebrating the next milestone for this project with our beneficiaries, which will be the start of the construction phase next year,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, Councillor Brett Herron.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2017-12-07T22:00:00Z1
City urges residents and visitors to use public transport during festive season The City plans to prevent and alleviate gridlock conditions along routes to popular destinations over the festive season.<p>The City’s Transport and Urban Development Authority, in conjunction with the City’s Traffic Service, will over the next five weeks intervene to prevent and alleviate gridlock conditions along the Atlantic Seaboard and the False Bay coastline between Strandfontein and Muizenberg.</p><p>‘We have been implementing this strategy for the past four years and intend to do so once again. The interventions will happen on an ad hoc basis – thus, as and when needed. More importantly, the interventions may affect those travelling in private vehicles in particular. I therefore urge residents and visitors to make use of public transport as far as possible,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, Councillor Brett Herron.</p><p>The MyCiTi service has a number of routes to and from popular spots across Cape Town – in particular to and from Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. </p><span><blockquote cite="#"> <p> <em>​​​​​​</em><em>‘Traffic congestion has become a regular occurrence along the Atlantic Seaboard during the holiday period. The best solution remains to avoid travelling to this area in private vehicles, and to rather opt for public transport, walking, and cycling as far as possible. The MyCiTi service offers a hassle-free option for those who do not want to be stuck in gridlock traffic while searching for limited on-street parking</em>.'<b>Brett Herron</b><cite>City of Cape Town's Mayoral Committee Member: Transport and Urban Development</cite></p></blockquote></span><p>Visitors can park their private vehicles in the city central business district or foreshore area and use the MyCiTi bus service or any other public transport service to reach the beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard, in particular on 26 December 2017 and 1 January 2018, which are popular beach days in perfect weather conditions.</p><p><strong>Atlantic Seaboard</strong><br>Those who have visited the Atlantic Seaboard during the festive season in prior years will know that parking is limited and that it can easily take two to three hours to travel between Sea Point and Camps Bay by car.</p><p>Interventions will take place on an ad hoc basis at the main entry points to the Atlantic Seaboard as and when gridlock conditions necessitate it.</p><p>In Sea Point and Bantry Bay, interventions may take place at the following intersections: <br>• Queens and Beach Roads<br>• Queens and Victoria Roads<br>• Queens and Regent Roads</p><p>In Camps Bay, interventions may take place at the following intersections:<br>• Houghton Road and Camps Bay Drive<br>• Victoria and Houghton Roads</p><p>‘MyCiTi buses, coaches, minibus-taxis and tour operators will have preferential access to the Atlantic Seaboard during the interventions. Those travelling in private vehicles may be stopped at these intersections and redirected back to where they were coming from until the traffic congestion has been alleviated to an acceptable level. Thus, private vehicles could be directed away from their desired destination for as long as it takes for the gridlock situation to subside,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p><strong>Far south</strong><br>The roadworks along Main Road, one of the Southern Peninsula’s most scenic access routes, were completed last month. Residents and visitors to the suburbs of Muizenberg, St James, and Kalk Bay can now fully enjoy the benefits of Main Road, but should expect heavy traffic during the festive season.</p><p>Road users should also expect delays along Kommetjie Road (M65), and Ou Kaapse Weg (M6) between Noordhoek Road and Kommetjie Road, due to the major upgrades taking place along these sections. </p><p>The roadworks will be suspended as from 16 December 2017 until 7 January 2018, but the traffic flow will be affected along Kommetjie Road in particular as the road is very narrow along certain sections, with restricted walkways for pedestrians.</p><p><strong>Table Mountain</strong><br>Visitors to Table Mountain are also strongly advised to make use of the MyCiTi service as Kloof Nek Road becomes congested during the festive season. There is also limited parking available in the vicinity of the cableway station.</p><p>‘The MyCiTi shuttle service to the Upper Table Mountain stop is free of charge, meaning visitors need only pay on Route 107 (Camps Bay) from the central business district to the top of Kloof Nek Road, where they can disembark at the Kloof Nek Stop situated at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection. From there, commuters should transfer to the Route 110 bus – the free Table Mountain shuttle service – to the Upper Tafelberg stop and disembark at the cableway station,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>The same applies to passengers who are departing from the cableway station: they embark at the Upper Tafelberg stop and will transfer to MyCiTi Route 107 at the Kloof Nek Stop at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection. </p><p>The free shuttle on Route 110 runs every 10 to 15 minutes.</p><p>Commuters are reminded that they need a myconnect card to travel on the MyCiTi bus service. A myconnect card can be purchased for R35 from selected station kiosks and participating retailers across the city.</p><p>The City will also extend the operating hours of the MyCiTi bus service on routes to the V&A Waterfront and Canal Walk, and the beaches on selected days during the festive season.</p><p>Visitors and residents are advised to visit the <a href="" target="_blank">MyCiTi website</a> for more information about the timetable changes, or to phone the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2017-12-06T22:00:00Z1
Operation Exodus ready to rideDuring the previous festive season, 1 034 public transport vehicles were checked before departure in the run-up to Christmas Eve.<p>The City of Cape Town’s Traffic Service rolls out Operation Exodus tomorrow, 8 December 2017.</p><p>Operation Exodus sees traffic officers checking the fitness of all vehicles leaving public transport interchanges, including Joe Gqabi, Bellville and Cape Town Station. Vehicle check points and speed checks are also set up in the vicinity of the interchanges. </p><span><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="" style="width:511px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span><p>Any vehicle that is found not to be roadworthy is suspended and prohibited from travelling further. Officers will also screen vehicle loads to guard against over-loading and ensure that all driver and vehicle documentation is in order prior to departure. This will help to keep road users safe, in line with the objectives of the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan to </p><p>‘Operation Exodus isn’t popular in some circles, but it could mean the difference between life and death for hundreds of innocent people making their way to holiday destinations around the country. I commend the bus and taxi operators who willingly submit to the checks because it tells me they have the best interests of their passengers at heart.</p><p>‘I also urge passengers to do their bit by holding drivers to account for their actions. Of late, we are seeing more and more taxi drivers being arrested for drunk driving while transporting passengers. I sincerely hope that long-distance operators are more responsible, especially considering the unnecessary carnage that is far too commonplace on our roads,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>During the previous festive season, 1 034 public transport vehicles were checked before departure in the run-up to Christmas Eve. Of these, 24% of vehicles failed the roadworthy test. Midibuses accounted for a 36% failure rate and minibuses 30%. The failure rate for buses was 8%.  </p><p>After the City’s examiners have checked a vehicle, the number of passengers, driver and vehicle details are recorded on a monitoring sheet and a sticker that is affixed to the vehicle’s windscreen as part of the Western Cape Government’s Sticker Project. This makes it easier for traffic officers to conduct spot checks as the vehicle travels through the province.</p><p>‘Our collective focus on public transport is key to all of our efforts to make our roads safer over the festive season. Free vehicle inspections, which are part of our Public Transport Sticker Project, have become a common feature during both the Easter and festive season exodus periods when many holiday-makers are making use of long-distance public transport to get to their various destinations. Making sure that these vehicles are safe and roadworthy limits the risk of them being involved in fatal crashes along the way. We will continue to support these efforts that make public transport safer for those who rely on it over this period,’ said the Western Cape Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2017-12-06T22:00:00Z1
