Western Cape Minister of Transport to embark on road safety roadshow across the Western Cape

12 January 2020 | Department of Transport


Western Cape Minister of Transport and Public Works Bonginkosi Madikizela will travel across the province starting from next week to discuss road safety initiatives and law enforcement integration plans.

The roadshow is an initiative by the Minister to address his concerns about the high number of fatalities happening on municipal roads. Preliminary statistics for the period 1 to 31 December 2019 indicate that the Western Cape has recorded a decrease in the number of fatalities, with a total of 111 deaths, compared to 167 in December 2018.  Of these, 71 deaths happened on municipal roads. 

The District Municipalities that will be visited during the first leg of the roadshow include the Cape Winelands, West Coast, Central Karoo, Overberg, Garden Route and the Cape Metropole. 

Minister Madikizela will also join traffic operations/roadblocks during his visit to the respective municipalities. All Mayors have been invited.
