Alien Vegetation Clearing is Back

Frequent Users of Chapman's Peak Drive will be familiar with our periodic road closures for Alien Vegetation clearing. This is essential to protect our delicate eco-systems and prevent the alien plants from stealing ground water or destroying our natural fynbos.

SANParks Table Mountain HAT Teams in conjunction with Working on Fire send out specialized teams to 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.

The Alien Vegetation Clearing Unit will tackle the slopes of Chappies between  09h30 and 15h00 every Wednesday in February and March 2019 - weather permitting. 

Start Date: Weds 6 Feb 2019 
Completion Date:  Weds 27 Mar 2019 

Chapman's Peak Drive is committed to protecting our slopes and as such Chappies will be closed to all traffic as per the schedule whilst the Alien Vegetation Clearing Team takes to the slopes of the mountain above our drive to remove as many aliens as possible on the above mentioned dates.   

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 15h30 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.
