FYI - Camps Bay drive is the road that comes over the hill from the CBD down to Camps Bay.
The road at sea level that passes along the 'face' of Camps Bay is Victoria Road and will now be the only way to get to Camps Bay, or to pass through Camps Bay as travelers go south.
Closing it for such a long time will have a huge impact for residents as well as for visitors.
Cape Town's Camps Bay Drive closed for roadworks until September 2015
The City of Cape Town will be undertaking major roadworks along Camps Bay Drive this winter, closing the roadway for general traffic from Monday 20 April 2015.
The City of Cape Town has sent out a statement warning residents and visitors to expect major traffic delays along the alternatives routes to and from Camps Bay.
Camps Bay Drive has not been refurbished for the past 30 years, and the major upgrade will aim to significantly improve the road condition and safety for road users.
The City of Cape Town said that the upgrade could not have been postponed any longer.
We urge road users to familiarise themselves with the alternative routes well in advance, approximately 14 000 vehicles travel along Camps Bay Drive every day and commuters will have to be accommodated on other roads to enter or exit Camps Bay.
It is therefore very important to expect delays and to take this into account when planning a journey.
