Just when we thought it was all but forgotten there is at last positive news on the Sand River bridge
After many months of uncertainty we now have good news. The tender for the Sand River Bridge has been awarded and construction will commence in the next two weeks.
The tender has been awarded to a Cape Town based company, EMPA Structures, and it is envisaged that it will take 14 months to complete. During construction the existing causeway will still be used. It has also been indicated through our Ward Councillor, Ben Rheeder, that they intend to employ local labour, which is good news for the Sea Vista community.
A team from EMPA will be visiting St Francis Bay later this month and have agreed to meet with the St Francis Property Owners and other affected parties to discuss some of the issues that need to be addressed which include calming measures, speed signs and the possible nuisance factor if construction continues during the holiday period when considerably more traffic will be using the R330.
