Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City of Cape Town’s transport authority, has commenced with the upgrade of a section of Spine Road, one of the busiest roads in Khayelitsha where we will, among others, install mole barriers to prevent Cape dune moles from ruining the road. Read more below:

This project is valued at approximately R28,2 million and entails the upgrading of Spine Road between the intersections with Mew Way and Alpine Street.

‘Spine Road is one of the busiest main routes linking Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain. About 11 130 vehicles use this section of Spine Road on a daily basis. The road surface has deteriorated over the years due to the volume of traffic, the presence of greywater, and the activities of the Cape dune mole rat. Furthermore, a significant number of pedestrians walk to their destinations along this route, but there are currently no pedestrian facilities or street lighting. The purpose of this project is to address these shortcomings in providing the residents from Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain with a much improved road and with facilities that will improve the safety of the most vulnerable road users – notably pedestrians and cyclists,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron.

This from dailymaverick.co.uk:

Anton Yelchin, a rising young actor who starred as Chekov in the new “Star Trek” film, was killed early Sunday in a freak car accident, his publicist said. He was 27.

“The news is so sad and true,” Jennifer Allen said in a statement.

Yelchin “was killed in a fatal traffic collision early this morning,” she added. “His family requests you respect their privacy.”

The accident took place in the driveway of Yelchin’s San Fernando Valley home around 1:10 am (0810 GMT), when he was preparing to meet friends for a rehearsal and momentarily left his car, Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Jenny Hauser said.

The car “rolled backward down his steep driveway, pinning him against a brick mailbox pillar and security fence,” she said.

After he failed to show up, his friends found him dead by the car, she added, saying it was unclear how long after the accident they arrived.

Junior Springbok coach Dawie Theron has made six changes to his starting team to face England in the World Rugby Under-20 Championship semi-final at the Academy Stadium in Manchester, England, on Monday.

Powerful wing S’busiso Nkosi and exciting scrumhalf Embrose Papier were ruled out of the clash due to thigh and ankle injuries respectively, while Theron named a new front row and recalled vice-captain Ernst van Rhyn to the starting line-up in place of Cobus Wiese.

Nkosi suffered a thigh injury at training, while Papier damaged ankle ligaments after his foot was caught in another player’s boot at training on Saturday.

The other changes see the Eastern Province duo of prop Nicolaas Oosthuizen and hooker Tango Balekile join forces with Vodacom Blue Bulls prop Jaco Holtzhausen in the front row, which resulted in Franco van den Berg, Jan-Henning Campher and Carlü Sadie dropping to the bench.

In the other changes among the replacements, lock Eduard Zandberg takes over from Van Rhyn and Wiese replaces Denzel Hill. Continue reading

Springbok flyhalf Patrick Lambie was on Sunday ruled out of the third Castle Lager Incoming Series Test match against Ireland as a result of the concussion he suffered in the first meeting between the two teams in Cape Town eight days ago.

Lambie suffered concussion following a collision with the Irish flanker CJ Stander, who received a red card for the incident and a subsequent one week suspension.

The Bok flyhalf was sent home last Sunday for a weeklong mandatory rest according to the World Rugby Return to Play Protocol, ruling him out of the second Test which the Boks won 32-26 yesterday in Johannesburg.

“Pat is still experiencing symptoms of concussion and because of that we cannot start the Return to Play Protocol. As a result of that he will unfortunately not be available for selection,” explained Springbok team doctor Konrad von Hagen. Continue reading
