On 12th August, Gavin Lawson and Erika Foot (Zandvlei Nature Reserve Manager) went as the delegation representing the Ring Road Forum to meet with the MEC Environment Tasneem Essop in her office. She gave us an hour of her time and noted concerns we have regarding the EIR. Her department had just received the Report and had started to review it. She undertook to do a site visit before she made her decision on the matter.

Thank you to all the
people who spent time reading the EIR and submitting your comments on
The 28th May was the last day to comment on the draft final EIR.
A very successful protest against the
toll road proposal was held at
the Main Road, Lakeside, on Saturday, 8th
May 2004. The objective is to make more people aware in Cape Town. A fraction of the Cape Town population know anything about his
toll road proposal. This will affect all people living and visiting Cape Town.
527 petitions were signed in a few hours at the information table opposite the Lakeside Shopping Centre. Many expressing... "this was the first time they had heard about the toll road proposal and the complete lack of information generally being made available to the public of Cape Town."
