39 Roads In Western Cape Remain Closed 10 Days After Heavy Rain, Flooding

About 39 roads in the Western Cape remain closed as a result of the Heritage Day long weekend storms.

A cut-off low storm system lashed the province over that weekend, leaving a trail of destruction in its path.

Mopping-up operations are still taking place 10 days after the storm hit.

On Thursday, Western Cape Premier Alan Winde gave a short update on the status of some of the major roads in the province in the aftermath of that storm.

Winde said that while, in some instances, the closures were partial, with a stop-and-go system in place, others are completely closed off.

Winde added that there were no quick fixes.

He said it was best to make sure that the repairs the roadways were undergoing now would be able to withstand similar harsh weather conditions in the future.
