Following an incident in which a child was knocked down and hospitalised, the City of Cape Town has decided to inspect roads in the area after concerns were expressed about pedestrian safety.
“Improvements already approved and scheduled would soon be implemented which would slow down vehicles using these roads.” said Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads & Stormwater, Councillor Elizabeth Thompson
“What we have identified that there are existing speed humps, so it is not a matter of that are digging trenches and now we putting in speed humps, we will just recon-figurate that and increase the height where necessary and also paint the speed hump so that it just more obvious.” said Thompson
