Work on the upgrading of the sewerage system in Hermanus, near the Old Harbour, has begun. This project will temporarily impact tenants of Village Square, and also some businesses along Marine Drive and Main Road, as well as those on Market Square.
Whilst construction is underway, sections of Marine Drive, Market Square Street and Main Road as well as the parking lots in the affected areas will be closed temporarily to traffic.
Pedestrian traffic will be accommodated throughout the construction period.
The project entails the construction of a new rising main sewer pipeline from the newly constructed Bientang Sewer Pump Station, across Marine Drive, then along Market Square Street, to connect to the existing sewer system in Main Road.
