Alien Vegetation Clearing – November 2018

Friday, 02 November 2018 11:09

The SANParks Alien Vegetation clearing unit will be clearing alien vegetation on the slopes of Chapman’s Peak Drivethis November and as such Chapman’s Peak Drive will be closed between 09h30 and 15h30 every Wednesday in November 2018- weather permitting.

Chapman's Peak Drive is committed to protecting our slopes and is working with SANparks in their efforts to remove as many alien plants from the mountain as possible every Wednesday in November. This is essential to protect our delicate eco-systems and prevent the alien plants from stealing ground water or destroying our natural fynbos.

Specialized teams clear these aliens using ropes and technology to chop and clear the slopes of Chapman's Peak Drive and protect them from the alien threat. Whilst they are at work, the drive below will be encounter falling debris, making it dangerous for passage.

We understand the inconvenience but appreciate your assistance in the process of removing these aliens during which time Chapman's Peak Drive will be closed to all traffic – vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Please try and travel before 09h00 or after 16h00 on Wednesdays.

Should you need to travel between Noordhoek and Hout Bay between those times, kindly use Ou Kaapse Weg as an alternative route. We thank you for your co-operation and trust the mild inconvenience will be worth everyone's time to rid our slopes of Alien Vegetation.
