Cape Town's famous Chapman's Peak Drive remains closed to cyclists and pedestrians. According to the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works, the road is not yet safe for cyclists & pedestrians. Although repair work on the catch fences above Chapman's Peak Drive that were severely damaged during the fires of March 2015 has been completed, significant numbers of rocks about the size of a human fist continue to roll down onto the road. These pose a serious hazard to cyclists and pedestrians because of the height from which these projectiles fall off the mountain. Once the normal vegetation cover, which holds the soil together and reduces the risk of smaller rocks rolling down the slope, is fully recovered from the fire, cyclists or pedestrians will be permitted on Chapman's Peak Drive again. The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works will review the situation again in 2016. On the good side, Chapman's Peak Drive will be open to two-way motor vehicle traffic during the December holiday period.
