As should hopefully already be aware that Cape Town International Airport is undertaking a runway re-alignment project. An environmental impact assessment has started which necessitates public participation. A key portion of the re-alignment project are the proposed new flight paths which could see many more airplanes travelling over Edgemead resulting in a lot more noise pollution. It is important that you make your voice heard and either suggest alternative routes such as further South West over Montague Gardens and Killarney Gardens or query why existing paths cannot be maintained.
There is an open day at Bothasig Hall, Link Road, Bothasig on 13 May 2015, 15:00 – 19:00. Please make the time to attend.
More information can be found on the SRK website. You should consult the documents under Appendix 6C – Noise Study and Appendix 6E – Noise Review.
