Probing road link

Mitchell’s Plain councillors held a site meeting to discuss the R300 and Eisleben Road under the bridge at Stock Road, on Thursday October 26. Wolfgat Sub-council submitted a proposal to the Transport and Development Authority (TDA) to investigate linking New Eisleben Road to the R300. Mayoral committee member for area south, Eddie Andrews, said: “We are requesting that TDA investigate the feasibility of connecting the roads to the highways to ensure additional exit points for Mitchell’s Plain residents and those passing through. Due to the extensive consultative process that is required, the department is required to report progress at the February 2018 sub-council meeting.
