Description:

The Western Cape Government (WCG): Department of Transport and Public Works is proposing safety and Level of Service (LOS) improvements along Main Road 27 (R44) between Somerset West and Stellenbosch.  The project study area extends from Steynsrust Road (km 20.15) in Somerset West to Van Rheede Street (km 33.00) in Stellenbosch, a total distance of 12.85 km. A Basic Assessment process is being undertaken to obtain Environmental Authorisation.

Client:

Status:

A Final Basic Assessment Report (BAR), including the Final BAR Comments and Responses Reports, was submitted to DEA&DP on 31 May 2017 for consideration.  On 14 July 2017, DEA&DP informed the Applicant that the Final BAR had been rejected and would have to include certain additional information in order to be accepted.  The specific requests made by DEA&DP have subsequently been addressed and a Revised Final BAR has been produced.  This revised report has now been made available for a 21-day review and comment period from 23 November to 14 December 2017.  Hard copies of the Final Revised BAR have been made available at the Stellenbsoch and Somerset West public libraries.   The full report is also available for download below.  For ease of reference, sections of the report that have been newly added or updated from the previous Final version have been indicated below.  For comments to be considered in DEA&DP's decision-making process, they must be submitted to Ena de Villiers by no later than Thursday, 14 December 2017.
