Kouga Municipality to start temporary repairs to Paradise Beach and Aston Bay causeway

The Kouga Local Municipality says that the water level at the Seekoei estuary is low enough for the municipality to start with temporary repairs to the causeway between Paradise Beach and Aston Bay.

"The aim is to re-open the causeway to traffic later today, which will bring significant relief to Paradise residents, who have had to make use of the alternative gravel road to travel between Jeffreys Bay and their homes," the municipality said.

"The two channels at the estuary will be connected to each other either Tuesday or Wednesday and, once the water level has dropped sufficiently, further repairs will be affected, as required."
