The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW) re-opened one lane of the R44 Clarens Drive between Rooi Els and Gordon’s Bay for traffic on Tuesday afternoon, 20 December 2022, while repair work is under way on the other lane.
The traffic flow would be managed through stop/go signs.
Waiting times could be as long as two to three hours depending on the type of work being done, although every attempt would be made to stick to shorter waiting times.
While the roadway may seem in a good condition following the clean-up operations, there are sections where the road surface has been undermined and is not safe for any weight.
The road may be closed for safety or operational reasons at any time and without prior notice.
