Chapman’s Peak Drive Closure

Tracey Campbell - February 2, 2009

Chapman’s Peak Drive between Hout Bay and Noordhoek in Cape Town could remain closed for the next 5 months. The popular route has been closed since 31 July 2008 following heavy rains that damaged the road and caused rock-slides.

 Confirmation that the road will not form part of Cape Argus’ Pick ‘n Pay Cycle Tour on 08 March 2009 was announced on Friday 30 January 2009.



    The Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour’s 109km route has certainly been at the centre of attention over the last week. The good news is:

    Following high level meetings, we are very pleased to announce that Chapman’s Peak will be open on Race Day Sunday. We are comfortable that the safety of cyclists, which is clearly our primary concern, will not be compromised and are delighted that this iconic part of the route will be enjoyed again this year
