The newly improved Cilmor road bridge over the R300 has officially been opened and is expected to improve access to Brackengate 2, a logistics and light industrial business park in Brackenfell South, Cape Town.Brackengate 2 is a joint venture between Redefine Properties and VDMV Property Group. Construction on the R27 million bridge started in April 2017 and was completed on schedule during August 2018. With the bridge now open, Brackengate 2 will enjoy improved road access from the N1 and N2, via La Belle Street being the extension of Old Oak Road. Importantly, the new bridge connects Stikland and Brackengate on either sides of the R300 and assists with easing the traffic pressure on the R300 itself. The bridge will also alleviate traffic on internal roads within the Stikland and Brackengate precincts.
Grant Elliott, general manager: coastal of Redefine Properties says, “The build forms part of planned upgrades and construction to accommodate future growth in the area. It is also another step in providing the required road infrastructure, alternate access points to and from Stikland and Brackengate to surrounding road networks.”At 56 33 ha, Brackengate 2 is designed according to the latest urban planning and architectural principles to achieve maximum efficiency, security and comfort. The first hi-tech industrial and modern warehousing facilities within Brackengate 2 were completed during the first half of 2018. “The bridge is an important milestone for the envisioned development of Brackengate 2. Investing in this project is an investment in the region to unlock economic opportunities and support sectors like warehousing and distribution,” adds Craig Myburgh, VDMV.
