I am excited and proud to take up my first term as Executive Mayor for the next five years, and already have many plans in progress to bring positive change to Overstrand during this time.
We take our responsibility to serve our people very seriously, and will strive to be an exemplary local government.
The Overstrand is fast gaining attraction for not only being a preferred tourist destination for many, but also has the necessary infrastructure and resources to host the ever-increasing sport, art and cultural expositions that have become synonymous with the area.
Of note, is the significant contribution that these activities make to the socio-economic and aqua-cultural development of the region. To promote sustainable practice and conservation of the environment, visitors and locals are therefore encouraged to act responsibly and apply due great care when using various public amenities and event facilities.
A respite is in sight for motorists who make regular use of Sandbaai’s Main Road: After many months of patiently enduring construction work along the southern half of the Bergsig/Sandbaai juncture, the good news is that the upgrade will be completed by Friday 2 December and that Sandbaai’s Main Road will be reopened to traffic on the morning of Saturday 3 December.
All things considered, it could be said that affected motorists have handled the period of detours and delays relatively well and with good grace.
