Disruptive Kalk Bay Main Road upgrade almost completed after 9 years

Manager of the Kalk Bay Business Association, Caron Mackinnon-Little says after nine long years, the Kalk Bay main road upgrade is coming to an end in November 2017.

She says what's left to be done is the tarring of the last section of the road which she insists "will be completed in no time".

Businesses, schools, and community members have endured a lot during the upgrades, says Mackinnon-Little, many moving kids to other schools.

A lot of the schools have lost families during this time because of the stop-and-go. Parents stopped taking their children to school and some of the businesses were hammered and some closed down.

But all that is now in the past. We have the road looking good with some paving around it... It has taken a long time but I think it was a good investment and a good change for the area.

There's going to be a celebration from 29 November to 3 of December. The community will be coming together to celebrate the completion of a road that took almost a decade to upgrade.
