The City of Cape Town has partnered with Milnerton Estates and Garden Cities developers in a R140 million investment to convert Sandown Road and Malibongwe Drive up to the Potsdam interchange into a dual carriageway.
The bulk of the costs for the construction will be funded and undertaken by the developers, Milnerton Estates.
Garden Cities will undertake the bulk of the funding for the dualling of Sandown Road from Sunningdale Drive to Parklands Main Road.
The City will contribute approximately R66 million (excluding VAT) to these improvements.
The project began in October 2018 and is expected to be completed by May 2020, if there are no unforeseen delays.
MAYCO Member for Transport, Felicity Purchase said: “We are spending millions in addressing traffic congestion across the city. This project is but one example of our efforts and commitment to focus on road infrastructure projects that will assist to alleviate traffic congestion in the worst affected parts of Cape Town. Once completed, the flow of traffic along Sandown Road will be improved,”
