Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works Donald Grant on Monday visited the Champman’s Peak Drive to assess the damage that the recent fires in the South Peninsula has caused.

The fire which started last week Sunday in Muizenberg destroyed hectares of vegetation, destroyed eight structures and resulted in about five-hundred people evacuated from their homes.

Ministerial Spokesperson Siphesihle Dube said the drive suffered some main impact resulting from the fire which include excessive loss of vegetation, some release of some previously trapped and accumulated rock debris as well as some fracturing on some rocks on the slopes as well as on the rock face.

Dube said the concessionaire will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure continued safety on the drive.
