R310 EA Amendment Application Process

Short Project Title: R310 EA Amendment Application Process
   
Project Title: Upgrading and Widening of a Section of the R310 Corridor between the N2 and Polkadraai Road, Cape Town and Stellenbosch: Environmental Authorisation Amendment Application
   
Project Synopsis: The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works, Roads Infrastructure Branch (WCDTPW) is rehabilitating and improving the section of the R310 that links the N2 highway in the south to Polkadraai Road in the north. The section comprises TR2/1 located in the City of Cape Town and MR168 located in the Stellenbosch Municipality. The project aims to improve traffic safety along the R310 through the dualling of the road, rationalisation of access roads and closure of at-grade railroad crossings. PRASA, parent company of Metrorail, is partnering with WCDTPW in this initiative.  
SRK Consulting (South Africa) (Pty) Ltd (SRK) undertook an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998 (NEMA) and EIA Regulations, 2006 for the project. An Environmental Authorisation (EA) for the project was issued on 29 March 2012.
Spier Estate is located adjacent and to the east of the R310, and widening of the road to the east in this section was authorised in the EA. During the detailed design phase for this section, and upon initiation of expropriation and compensation negotiations with Spier Estate (subsequent to the EA), Spier management raised concerns regarding the impact of expropriation and the proximity of the road to the Estate.
Based on discussions with Spier Estate, and supported by additional specialist input, WCDTPW is applying for an amendment of the EA to authorise widening of the R310 to the east and west of the existing road on a 500 m-long section at Spier.
SRK was appointed by EFG, on behalf of the WCDTPW, to undertake the EA amendment application process in terms of NEMA and the EIA Regulations, 2014.
