City to install traffic calming measures around Fish Hoek High School

The City of Cape Town’s Urban Mobility Directorate will be installing traffic calming measures along rounds around Fish Hoek High School from Monday, 28 November 2022. Residents can expect the works to continue until Tuesday, 6 December 2022, pending unforeseen delays and inclement weather.

The work is planned to take place on weekdays, from 08:30 to 16:30. Work may also be undertaken on weekends if required.

The traffic calming measures will be installed along:

Nelson Road
Orlando Road
First Crescent
‘We ask that the community please cooperate with our team on the ground while the project is ongoing. We would like to install speed humps along these sections of the road to ensure the safety of learners and limit the driving speed of road users. This is in line with the City’s Traffic Calming Policy that prioritises the installation of traffic calming measures along roads where there are large numbers of vulnerable road users – these are roads close to schools, hospitals, old age homes, and so forth. We have measures in place to help direct residents during the construction period and we urge all road users to please comply,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.

For enquiries call the Transport Information Centre (toll-free 24/7) on 0800 65 64 63, or email transport.info@capetown.gov.za.
