Main Rd completion from Rosmead to Clairvaux

July 24, 2012

Please be advised that the Contractor will be placing the final layer of asphalt on Main Road from Rosmead Road to Clairvaux Road. This work will commence on Wednesday this week (25 July 2012). It is anticipated that the surfacing operation will take approximately 5 days to complete (weather permitting).

During the surfacing work, parking in this section will be limited from time to time. Available parking bays and public parking areas should be used during these times. Traffic should use Boyes Drive as an alternate route to avoid delays on Main Road during this time.

Once the surfacing operation is complete, road markings will be painted and the sewer lining and snags still need to be undertaken.

As such, it is anticipated that Main Road will be open to two-way traffic up to Clairvaux Road by mid-August 2012. Delays are as a result of the recent bad weather and hard rock encountered in this section.

The Contractor appreciates your co-operation and patience during the construction.

Police intervene in Kalk Bay noise battle

July 18, 2012

“Kalk Bay restaurant the Brass Bell had to cancel a karaoke contest with prizes worth R50 000 after it was ordered to stop hosting live bands following complaints from residents.

Police, liquor inspectors and law enforcement officers did an inspection last week and told its management live bands were no longer allowed.

“We brought the conditions of their licence to their attention. They can have a two-piece band with no drums and amplified music and can only have it until 11pm. We did not issue a fine. We just asked them to comply and we will follow up,” police spokesman FC van Wyk said yesterday.

Brass Bell managing director Oliver Bauer said: “It is affecting our business. We have over 100 staff and part of our business is live music.”

He acknowledged the restaurant’s liquor licence precluded it from hosting live bands. “It is a pity because we were having a karaoke competition and the semi-finals would have been tonight.

“The prize money was R50 000… but we had to cancel,” he said.”
