DEVELOPMENT: Chapman's Peak Drive Problem
Recent Western Cape Business News
THE Cape Town Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry would like to be part of the team that the Province is appointing to investigate the Chapman’s Peak Drive problem and the future of this vital tourist and business route.
In a letter to Premier Lynne Brown, Mr Albert Schuitmaker, Director of the Chamber, says the state of the road and the effect on the movement of people and goods in the South Peninsula is of great concern to the Chamber.
“We have been involved in the developments over the years and believe that an open and fully functional road is a minimum requirement in the overall transport infrastructure of that part of the Province.”
Mr Schuitmaker welcomed the decision to open the road for the Argus Cycle Tour but he said that a sustainable long-term solution should be found as a matter of urgency. “We are aware of the contractual arrangements and the strategic view of the Province and we wish to support a thorough review of the entire project in order to develop a sustainable model that will ensure mobility and safety.
“According to Press reports, you will establish a team to investigate the Chapman’s Peak Drive issue and we respectfully request that a representative from the Chamber be included in the team,” Mr Schuitmaker said.
