Cape Town issues notice for Tafelberg Road rehab from Kloof Nek to Lower Cableway Station, starting this week.

The City of Cape Town’s Urban Mobility Directorate has issued a notice to residents, road users, and businesses regarding a significant road rehabilitation project along Tafelberg Road, spanning from Kloof Nek Road to the Lower Cableway Station in the Table Mountain National Park. Scheduled to commence this week.

The project will span 12 months, with crews working from sunrise to sunset, Monday through Friday. Notably, no work is planned on Sundays, public holidays, or during night time hours.


Councillor Rob Quintas, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, emphasised the importance of the rehabilitation effort.

“The City is undertaking the rehabilitation of Tafelberg Road to ensure that all visitors to the Table Mountain National Park and the aerial cableway can do so safely,” said Councillor Quintas.

Tafelberg Road serves as the primary access route to the Table Mountain National Park and the Table Mountain aerial cableway, experiencing heavy traffic year-round.

The comprehensive rehabilitation project aims to restore and upgrade the road, parking facilities, stormwater infrastructure, non-motorised transport facilities, and embankment retaining structures.

Throughout the construction period on weekdays, traffic accommodation measures will be implemented. This includes lane closures and a stop-and-go system for sections, limited to 500m at a time.


Councillor Quintas assured the public that the work would be conducted in sections to minimise impact, acknowledging potential inconvenience.

Expressing gratitude for the public’s patience and support, Councillor Quintas urged road users and pedestrians to adhere to signage and personnel instructions.

The City reaffirmed its collaboration with SANParks on various aspects of this critical project.
