A traffic management plan has been prepared for the Waterkloof Township by the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality in collaboration with the Waterkloof Homeowners Association. This plan involves the installation of various traffic calming measures. These measures include the installation of new mini-circles, diagonal closures at some intersections as well as road closures. The aim of the plan is to prevent the intrusion of external through traffic into the neighbourhood, to address unsafe and dangerous circumstances caused by traffic in the area and to improve the quality of life in the township. This plan will be implemented in parallel with the proposed monitored access of the area.A copy of the management plan is available here.
