The Kouga Municipality has announced that the Paradise Beach causeway over the Seekoei River is CLOSED to both vehicles and pedestrians.
The causeway has been under repair for the past few months. One of the culverts that is still to be repaired, collapsed last night, leaving a hole in the causeway.
“The contractor doing the repairs is not on site at the moment because the high water levels are preventing them from working” said Laura-Leigh Randall from the Kouga Municipality in Jeffreys Bay.
“We cannot at this stage predict when the contractor will return to work, as the delay is the result of forces beyond their/our control” added Randall.
The causeway links Paradise Beach to Jeffreys Bay and was severely damaged during flooding last year.
