In response to the worst drought in the city’s history, the City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department is expediting the roll-out of pressure management technology to various parts of the water supply network. By creating more automated pressure zones, the City is able to adjust water pressure remotely and work more efficiently. Read more below:
The first planned works in this regard will take place in the Dunoon Zone which is bounded by Malibongwe Drive to the north, Koeberg Road to the west and the N7 to the east. Some 5 250 households will be affected.
The work is scheduled to take place on Monday, 19 February 2018, from 20:00 to 02:00. Other areas will be informed of supply disruptions in due course.
Not only does pressure management generally lower consumption by reducing the rate at which water flows to properties, it also reduces leaks and pipe bursts by better ensuring that pressure remains within levels that the pipework can tolerate, and reduces the rate of loss from leaks and bursts which do occur.

The City of Cape Town is commencing with the dualling of Kommetjie Road and Ou Kaapse Weg in Noordhoek in the Far South. The construction of the new lanes will affect traffic flow in the area, and commuters are advised to take this into account as the City is exploring solutions to alleviate the impact on road users. Read more below:
Preparations are underway for the construction of additional lanes along Kommetjie Road from the intersection with Ou Kaapse Weg to Capri Drive; and for the construction of additional lanes along Ou Kaapse Weg from the intersection with Noordhoek Main Road to the Glencairn Expressway.
The existing lanes along Kommetjie Road and Ou Kaapse Weg will be temporarily narrowed to create additional space on the shoulders of the roads where the new lanes will be built.
‘The capacity of Kommetjie Road and Ou Kaapse Weg will remain the same while we are constructing the new lanes. Road users will still have the same number of lanes available for commuting. However, these lanes will be narrower and as a result the traffic will move slower along these sections. Similarly, commuters should expect longer waiting times at the intersections of Ou Kaapse Weg and Buller Louw Boulevard, at Kommetjie Road and Ou Kaapse Weg, and at Kommetjie Road and Capri Drive. I also want to caution motorists to be aware of cyclists and pedestrians,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, Councillor Brett Herron.
