New R27m bridge over R300 now open

Redefine Properties and VDMV Property Group on Friday, 24 August, officially opened the upgraded Cilmor road bridge over the R300. The bridge is expected to further improve access to Brackengate 2, a logistics and light industrial business park located adjacent to the Shoprite Cilmor Distribution Centre in Brackenfell South.

Brackengate 2 is a joint venture between Redefine Properties and VDMV Property Group. Construction on the R27m bridge started in April 2017 and was completed on schedule during August 2018.

Improved road access

With the bridge now open, Brackengate 2 will have improved road access from the N1 and N2, via La Belle Street being the extension of Old Oak Road. The new bridge connects Stikland and Brackengate on either sides of the R300 and assists with easing the traffic pressure on the R300 itself. The bridge will also alleviate traffic on internal roads within the Stikland and Brackengate precincts.

“The build forms part of planned upgrades and construction to accommodate future growth in the area. It is also another step in providing the required road infrastructure, alternate access points to and from Stikland and Brackengate to surrounding road networks,” says Grant Elliott, general manager, coastal of Redefine Properties.

“The bridge is an important milestone for the envisioned development of Brackengate 2. Investing in this project is an investment in the region to unlock economic opportunities and support sectors like warehousing and distribution,” adds Craig Myburgh, VDMV.
