New detour road proves 2010 stadium progress

In close to a week, a new detour road will open in the vicinity of the 2010 stadium in Green Point.

The City of Cape Town’s Director of Roads and Stormwater, Henry du Plessis, says it provides concrete proof that the Granger Bay Boulevard project is on track and on time.

"The project includes the reconstruction of the Green Point traffic circle to allow pedestrians to cross under the elevated circle. To facilitate the construction of the new traffic circle, traffic using it has to be diverted onto a temporary bypass road which is being constructed around the circle.”

Du Plessis says the new intersection is controlled by traffic lights, and links the Western Boulevard to Main Road and to Bill Peters Drive was opened on Tuesday. The old link from the existing Green Point Circle to Main Road opposite York Street has now been closed to allow the new detour road to be completed.

The detour will be opened to traffic next Friday. The existing traffic circle will then be removed to make way for the new elevated one.
