'JOYOUS' OCCASION AT OFFICIAL OPENING OF SPEED BUMPS IN WESTCLIFF DRIVE

Two traffic-calming ‘speed tables’, or speed humps, have been placed in Westcliff Drive to deter motorists from racing down the street.

These traffic-calming measures were built at the Westcliff Drive and Arundel Street crossing and at the pedestrian crossing at Westcliff Drive and Orothamnus Avenue.

“It’s the first time I have officially opened a speed bump”, Executive Mayor Dudley Coetzee said tongue in the cheek. He thanked the ward committee members for their valuable input in making the Overstrand roads better and safer. “It pleases me to know that our ward committee system is working.”

Ward 4 Councillor, Anton Coetsee, was justifiably pleased with the Westcliff residents’ achievements and thanked Jan Cilliers for his relentless efforts in driving this project over many many years. “The speed at which people drive down this road creates a dangerous situation and Jan refused to take no for an answer, thank you.”
