GEORGE NEWS - The next phase of municipal road upgrades in George impacting the Go George bus service will commence on Monday 24 August.
The resurfacing of Knysna Road between Fourth Street and Mandela Road as well as the intersection at Pine Lodge comprises an asphalt wearing course placed over all four lanes and is expected to be done by the first week of October.
As work will be done one lane at a time, no rerouting is expected.
However, due to slower one-lane traffic in this area, delays should be expected all over the system and especially routes servicing the eastern parts of town.
Passengers are advised to allow more time for their bus trips during this time, especially during peak hours.
Bus stops temporarily closed
Affected bus stops on the lane under construction will be closed for short periods at a time and temporary stops will be erected in close proximity for passengers’ convenience.
The two bus stops in Knysna Road which will be affected intermittently are 709 Fourth B in front of PnP, in the direction towards the Garden Route Mall from the CBD, and 706 Saasveld, in the direction towards the CBD from the Garden Route Mall.
Posters informing passengers about the situation are being erected at these stops.
Go George apologises for the inconvenience and appeals to road users to be patient and exercise caution near roadworks and bus stops.
