Drove past the scene now on the way into work. 

 

Along Steenberg road, opposite Polsmoor prison entrance with a truck parked a few meters away from the scene. It looked like a regular commuter on his/her way to work. Unfortunately the victim was not that lucky and lost his/her life. Very sad moment and condolences for his/her family.

RIP, rider

 

I've been waiting for this on spanschemaat road near the church, where the roadworks currently leave very little open for the regular commuters.

Another sad and unnecessary loss of life.

 

The cycle lanes they are building can't be finished soon enough. But too late for this unfortunate rider.

Correct, there are a lot of road works along that Spanschemaat and Steenberg road... makes the road extremely narrow!

Tragic... The amount of accidents this year is unacceptable but feels like its just accepted and we are relatively helpless to stop them

Condolences to his/her loved ones. Another cycling death on a road frequented by cyclists! This is becoming a regular occurrence! Our road traffic authorities need to take drastic action.
