Causeway between Aston Bay and Paradise Beach to be repaired

BY NATALI IVERSON - FEBRUARY 10, 2015

The causeway between Aston Bay and Paradise Beach in Jeffreys Bay will continue to be repaired from Tuesday, with officials saying the repairs could last until the end of March.

Kouga Municipal Manager, Sidney Fadi, said that sections of the causeway would need resurfacing and that its foundation needs strengthening following severe flood damage last year.

“The causeway will be closed to vehicles while repairs are underway, however residents are advised that the schedule is weather dependant,” Fadi said.

He added that motorists could use the gravel road, accessed from the R102 between Jeffreys Bay and Humansdorp, as an alternative.
