Strong winds wreak havoc in the Western Cape

Authorities in the Western Cape closed Chapman’s Peak and the Huguenot Tunnel due to strong winds.

According to the City of Cape Town’s Kevin Jacobs, traffic authorities dealt with minor traffic incidents and obstructions that were caused by the gale-force winds.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution.

"Officers are removing debris and branches from the roadway in various parts of the City," he said.

Jacobs said this has led to two sections of Baden Powell Drive being closed to traffic.

"The road is closed between Strandfontein Road and Capricorn Circle in Muizenberg, as well as the stretch of roadway between Oscar Mpetha and Mew Way in Khayelitsha."
