Winter Road Closures on Chappies
Friday, 14 June 2019 11:20

Entilini Operations reminds all users of Chapman’s Peak Drive that inclement weather can cause #Chappies to be closed. High risk weather conditions, notably strong winds or heavy rain, will likely cause the drive to be closed. The safety of all road users is the highest priority, and the decision to close Chappies can be taken within a minute. Once the gate is closed, no-one will be allowed to enter – not even runners or cyclists.

It is hard to pre-warn motorists or recreational users of the road closures, as the weather is notoriously unpredictable in the Cape in winter. If there is a stormy day and you are a regular user, please prepare for last minute changes to the drive’s status and we appreciate your co-operation to ensure the safety of users on Chapman’s Peak Drive.

Efforts to notify the public as quickly as possible of road closures include:

  • The electronic notification board which is linked to the website stating open or closed.
  • Social Media status updates are done manually as soon as possible.
    Please follow us on our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) to keep up to date with notifications of any Road Closures on Chapman's Peak Drive & other happenings.
  • An SMS is sent out to all registered frequent users during the closure events. This service is only available to our registered Frequent Users. Registration is Free - CLICK HERE to sign up. 
  • Media Release to local radio Stations.

As always Chapman’s Peak Drive thanks you for your patience during the possible road closures of the winter period. We remind our users that the alternative route is Ou Kaapse Weg.
