The last remaining two gravel roads - Galjoen and Perlemoen Streets - in Sandbaai have been tarred. It took half a century to ensure that all the roads in Sandbaai are tarred. Lenie van Wyk, whose late husband Gideon was an Overstrand Mayor many years ago, was invited to cut the ribbon.
She was also a committee member for Sandbaai up to 2016, and put much effort in to raising funding to tar all the streets in this neigbourhood.
There to celebrate the occasion were Ward 7 Committee members and family and friends as well as the responsible municipal officials.
Ward 7 Councillor, David Botha, said that the Tekkies Poel parking area at the very southern end of Main Road will be completed by the end of the year.
“Now it is time to move on to other worthy projects such as more street lighting, traffic calming measures and the upgrading of various parking areas along the Sandbaai coast,” concluded Cllr Botha.
