As part of the initial infrastructure upgrades for Conradie Park, all the external roads, intersections, cycling & pedestrian routes were significantly upgraded during 2020 and are now complete and fully operational, including 6 signalized intersections, the widening of Forest Drive Extension from a 2 lane road to a 5 lane road, including a new dedicated 5m wide non-motorized transport (NMT) route for pedestrians & cyclists. Two new NMT bridges over the railway & roadway at Old Mutual, connecting the site directly to Mutual Station, which links to the PRASA Central & Northern lines, with a safe, well lit and security monitored NMT link from the Conradie Park site.
In addition, a new elegant NMT bridge was constructed over the Elsieskraal Canal connecting the site to the important industrial area of Epping, a big job provider for the area.
As part of the phase 2 traffic upgrades, the main Forest Drive Extension road passing Conradie park is further upgraded, including some additional road widening and the construction of a large new elevated-T bridge over the railway, through the Maitland cemetery and connects directly onto Voortrekker Road, with a new signalized intersection not far from the current N7 intersection.
This new roadway and Elevated-T bridge significantly improves Conradie Park’s connectivity to the surround areas and has the capacity to accommodate an additional 2,000 cars per hour, a significant upgrade for the site.
The new road upgrade connects onto Voortrekker in front of the current Wingfield site and the long-term City of Cape Town transport masterplan is to continue this road upgrade through Wingfield and connect onto the N1 by Century City, further improving the overall connectivity and travel time to and from Conradie Park.
