Residents to comment on proposed upgrade of De Waal, Kendal and Main Road intersection<p>'We would like to consult the community and get their insights on our proposals to upgrade the De Waal Road, Kendal Road (M38), and Main Road (M4) intersection in Diep River. Our objective is to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow at these junctions, which provides key road links for public transport, freight and emergency networks to the surrounding residential, commercial and industrial areas in Diep River and Southfield. We believe the proposed upgrade will help alleviate traffic congestion in the southern suburbs,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.</p><p>De Waal and Kendal roads currently function as single carriageways, linking the M3, Main Road (M4) and Prince George Drive (M5). The long-term plan involves extending these roads to connect with the R300. </p><p>All four approaching roads to the intersection are dual-traffic single carriageways with varying lane widths. </p><p>The proposed upgrades will include the following:</p><ul><li>Kendal Road and Main Road (northern and southern approaches) will be widened from two to three lanes, including two through-lanes merging into one downstream. <br> </li><li>De Waal Road will expand to four lanes with two through lanes, one dedicated left turn, and one dedicated right turn. <br> </li><li>Both De Waal Road and Kendal Road approaches will include medians.<br> </li><li>The proposed upgrade also includes street lighting, storm water connections and catch-pits, as well as the removal and replanting of large trees.<br><br> <strong>How to comment:</strong></li></ul><ul><li>Submit a comment via <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li><li>Send an email to <a href="" target="_blank"></a> (quote reference: 110222301)<br><br> <br> </li></ul><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2024-03-16T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#68c6f2c0-43e8-4b23-ac9b-11a813bbb8b1;L0|#068c6f2c0-43e8-4b23-ac9b-11a813bbb8b1|have your say;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#762de267-90ad-4660-8493-5085a227187c;L0|#0762de267-90ad-4660-8493-5085a227187c|Transport;GPP|#849c71d3-ed9d-4ce2-89f6-03e9c6f179ef;GPP|#ed82ebba-eb32-4b9a-99c9-da3e081869a610
