  • Alderman JP Smith1st October 2016

    If you are not aware of it, there has been some concerning (for many) reports of Ald JP Smith being replaced. Have a look at https://www.facebook.com/handsoffjp  and  http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/ct-safety-chief-may-be-axed-for-being-outspoken-2074138 

    We propose that ALL concerned NW members send the letter below – or amend as you see fit - to the Mayor - Mayor.Mayor@capetown.gov.za - and copy in Patricia.DeLille@capetown.gov.za  and  leader@da.org.za  and  jselfe@parliament.gov.za  and  Jean-Pierre.Smith@capetown.gov.za

     

    Dear Mayor De Lille

    “We support this viewpoint”

    It is with UTMOST CONCERN that we hear via the press that the intention is to remove Alderman JP Smith from the Safety and Security Mayco portfolio in January 2017. He has done wonders for our City in terms of implementation and facilitating Crime Watches and generally enabling Communities to participate in vital safety initiatives. Such passion and commitment is unrivalled anywhere in South Africa, and we believe that this decision is not in the best interest of the broader Community.

    We have, with his support, pioneered initiatives with the City, which have paved the way for other communities to follow suite e.g. the sponsorship of vehicles for the use of Law Enforcement.

    Additionally, we funded our own Crime Watch Radios in order to free up funding in the City’s Crime Watch radios budget to be rather used in underprivileged areas.

    The results of many of our Crime Watch activities speak for themselves, and facing resourcing challenges within SAPS, cohesive and experienced support from the City is viewed as mission critical.

    We sincerely trust that you will take our concerns on board and use them wisely in the broader interests of our communities.

    Regards

     

     

     

  • Sidewalks and Cycle track construction in Tokai28th July 2016

    Raubex Construction (Pty) Ltd has been appointed by the City of Cape Town (who has further appointed a member of their group, Strata Civils) to carry out the construction of 1.5m wide Sidewalks and 1.5m Cycle Lanes (where required) in the Tokai area.  This work will include the widening of roads, appropriate kerbing, and the installation of storm-water infrastructure.  Specifically:

    Upper Tokai Road: This construction is limited to the Zwaanswyk intersection and should be completed by mid-August (weather permitting) 

    Tokai Road: Both the northern and southern sides of the road will be upgraded from the traffic circle up to the M3 bridge.  Work should be completed by mid-October 2016. 

    Steenberg Road: Both the eastern and western sides of the road will be upgraded from the Tokai traffic circle to Main Road (starting mid-November 2016 to mid-August 2017) 

    Construction work will take place on a daily basis (Mon-Sat) 08h00 to 17h00.  Non-working days are Sundays and Public Holidays.  During the working period a Stop-Go system will be in place to assist with traffic flow so please allow extra time to travel to your destination.  Residents are also asked to practice patience and abide by the speed restrictions that will be put in place.  This is not only to ensure road users' safety but also the safety of construction staff. 

    Strata Civils are aware that some driveways in Tokai Road may be affected by the proposed construction: 

    Paving: A certain amount of paving will be removed from the residents' driveways to make way for the sidewalk and/or cycle lane.  The paving that is removed will be stockpiled as close to the residents' boundary as possible.  A portion of this paving will be re-used to tie in the existing driveway paving with the new sidewalk/cycle lane.
    Landscaping: Residents are asked to remove any plants and irrigation systems they they wish to keep ahead of the construction activities. Strata Civils will advise affected residents ahead of construction where the sidewalks will be built.

    If you have any queries in this regard, please contact the Site Manager, Rashied Roos, on 084 407 6028 as soon as possible.

  • News article - City calls on public to comment on Draft Filming by-law25th July 2016

  • Request from the Tokai Residents Association19th April 2016

    Request from the Tokai Residents' Association (TRA) 

    We have been informed that the Bergvliet High School recycling facility is closing down this Friday, 22 April.  (Unfortunately their notice did not meet the deadline of last week's Constantiaberg Bulletin.) 

    We implore Tokai residents to continue recycling responsibly.  Details of what can be recycled and nearby recycling facilities are also listed on the Waste and Recycling page of the TRA website:https://sites.google.com/site/tokairesidentsassoc/tokai-community/waste-and-recycling 

    If you are aware of other local recycling outlets not on this list, please advise the TRA on tra.tokai@gmail.com 

    Please remember that recycling has been introduced to help the environment and reduce the amount of waste going to the landfills. Small fundraising opportunities by schools have developed from this initiative but recycling staff and volunteers have limited facilities: 

    Here are some pointers to help them - and our environment:

    IMPORTANT: ALL ITEMS MUST BE CLEAN/RINSED!!  Dirty items attract vermin and insects.  Any containers with old food will be discarded as rubbish and go to the landfill.  The recycling staff do not have the time or facilities to wash-up.  Perishable/wet items such as old food, dirty plastic food wrapping, babies' nappies, sanitary items, tissues, etc are not acceptable for recycling and must go straight to waste. 
    RECYCLE DURING SPECIFIED TIMES: Please do not leave recycling (or waste) outside a recycling facility when it is closed.  Nor should waste be left at Tokai Library or by a road, expecting someone else to pick it up!  This is classified as DUMPING.  Dumping is illegal and a fine can be implemented.
    If anyone is seen dumping, please report it to the City of Cape Town (CoCT) with full details of "the dumper", eg date, time, place, description of person/vehicle, description of 'dump' (garden, building waste, etc).  Photographic evidence is ideal.  CoCT contact details are: 

    Call Centre:  0860 103 089/ E-mail:  wastewise.user@capetown.gov.za

    Online:         https://www.capetown.gov.za/en/ServiceRequests/Pages/default.aspx 

    Posters/signage: In terms of the City of Cape Town's (CoCT) by-laws, please be reminded that only CoCT approved posters are allowed to be attached to lamp posts/poles/traffic robots in Tokai. These will have a green CoCT date stamped permit approval sticker on them. 

    Ad hoc signs advertising services such as plumbing, tiling, wood cutting, computer repairs, DSTV, etc, that are stuck to trees/electricity boxes/bridges without the green CoCT approval sticker are not permitted.  We encourage all residents to remove and dispose of them please. This will help to reduce the visual clutter along our roads. 

    NB.  Estate Agents' boards are legitimate on Saturdays and Sundays.  

    Please help to keep our suburb of Tokai looking tidy!

  • REMOTE JAMMING7th March 2016

    REMOTE JAMMING

    Vehicle  Remote Jamming:  Criminals can block or jam the locking signals of remote locking devices of vehicles. Most remote controls work with radio waves that use allocated radio frequencies which are vulnerable and exploited by criminals. Automated gate  or garage remote controls are mainly used to jam the signal sent by a car remote control ,which is pressed in close proximity when parking and locking your vehicle.

    Using a remote device to block or jam the locking device to motor vehicles has sadly become an everyday occurrence in South Africa. Remote jamming is unfortunately excluded by insurers across the country for vehicles or claims for property stolen from vehicles.

    In order to avoid becoming a victim of this crime a few simple steps can be followed: 

    Most important rule : Make sure your vehicle is locked by physically checking the doors a few seconds after locking it with the remote. Do not turn your back on your vehicle and  press the remote while walking away. Be aware of the surroundings at all times and take note of suspicious persons or activity in and around the parking area Report suspicious activity to relevant authority(SAPS/Security/Neighbourhood Watches) Never leave valuable items in your vehicles especially where visible. Ensure the boot is locked.
