update (06 Oct 2015): Due to a number of unexpected challenges that have delayed the project, Cape Town's Camps Bay Drive will remain closed to general traffic until late in November 2015. The scenic route has been closed to traffic since 20 April 2015.
The City of Cape Town will be undertaking major roadworks along Camps Bay Drive this winter to significantly improve the road condition and safety for road users. The road will therefor be closed for general traffic as from Monday 20 April 2015 until end of September 2015 if everything goes according to plan.
Stop-and-go control points will be in operation between Geneva Drive and Prima Avenue and Houghton Drive and Rontree Avenue to give access to residents who live in the vicinity of the roadworks. Commuters can make use of Geneva Drive as an alternative route to enter or exit Camps Bay. The City of Cape Town expects major delays and advises road users to take this into account when planning your journey.
