Update – Development at Kenton Entrance

by | Jul 27, 2022 | Blog, Building and Town Planning | 14 comments

As promised please find plans and 3D aerial view of the garage entrance.


  1. All cars including big trucks, no matter from which side they entered, must exit the center onto Kariega Road, where they join all the cars wanting to leave Kenton. They all end up trying to enter or cross the R72. No plans for a traffic light on Kariega Road or at the R72, not even for any traffic circle can be found. It is a disaster in the making.
    How far has Kenton Ratepayers been able to solve this problem?

    • KOSRA have been VERY involved with this. Sadly KOSRA can not work magic or work against the powers that be in NDLAMBE. The project sadly has been approved as depicted

  2. why is there no traffic circle on the National road – this will just be a death trap

    • KOSRA did request this with developer. Sadly it was not implemented

  3. The intersection with the R72 has not been improved to allow for the additional vehicles that will be exiting from the garage so the congestion to exit Kenton will be worse.

    No pedestrian bridges or underpass have been provided so all the extra pedestrians crossing the R72 to access the shops will be endangered.

    • KOSRA have raised all these issues amongst others. Sadly no traffic circle etc have been implemented by the development

  4. Is there any intention to install a set of traffic lights and rumble strips at the intersection/entrance to Kenton? Pedestrians from Ekhuphumleni need to be considered.
    I’ve only just arrived back in the area so am unaware of any discussions regarding this, that may already have taken/are taking place.

    • KOSRA did request a traffic circle. Sadly not implemented by developer

  5. Surely there must be regulation as to how many parking bays are required, because as per the drawing these will not be enough – never mind what about delivery vans? The shops dont seem to have a receiving area?

  6. Is there going to be a circle on the main road at the main entrance to Kenton. The intersection is impossible. Cars cannot get across from Kenton side onto main road.

    • KOSRA requested a traffic circle. Unfortunately it was not implemented

  7. The biggest concern is that there is no TRAFFIC CIRCLE at the R72 intersection. A traffic circle is very necessary at this dangerous intersection

    • KOSRA did attempt to ensure a traffic circle. Unfortunately it was not implemented
