Processes of having robots installed in St. Michaels Beach and Knox Gore Road intersection are at the advanced stage

After a series of engagements between the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality and the KZN Provincial Department of Transport regarding the installation of robots at St. Michaels and Knox Gore intersection there is light at the end of a tunnel. The municipality engaged the department to seek approval since the intersection has a Provincial road, which is Marine Drive and therefore their approval was a necessity. In addition to this the department indicated that they do not have enough budget to have robots installed in that intersection.

The necessity to have robots installed was realised after traffic impact assessment was conducted and also due to some accidents occurring within the intersection. After the study it appeared that the Department of Transport did not have enough budget for the project hence the municipality also had to engage them for it to implement the project on their behalf. It is worth stating that the municipality has completed the tender process and the work is expected to commence in a few weeks’ time and in the meanwhile motorists are urged to be patient and drive cautiously through the said intersection.
