The City’s Urban Mobility Directorate will be erecting a new overhead sign along the N1 freeway at the Foreshore exit. The new sign will replace the same sign that broke off the gantry some time ago. The Foreshore exit will be closed to traffic for six hours on Sunday, 17 July 2022.

The closure of the Foreshore exit along the N1 freeway is planned as follows:

  • On Sunday, 17 July 2022
  • From 08:00 until 14:00 The closure will allow the team to safely replace the sign, which indicates the routes to the Cape Town International Convention Centre and Christian Barnard Street.

Residents are advised that the dates may change due to unforeseen circumstances as the work is weather dependent.

‘Our team will be closing the lanes to this exit for safety reasons, and will ensure that all traffic wanting to enter the Foreshore area is redirected to the N1 exit at Buitengracht for those few hours. We thank residents for their patience while the work is under way,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.
