EVEN more Chloorkop businesses have come out about being negatively affected by the upgrade of Bergrivier Drive.

And Mighty Moo Ice-Cream Factory is one of them.

The construction, which is meant to widen the road, officially began in 2015.

Along the way, however, various businesses have slowed down due to a lack of access to their premises.

And now for the past month, ice-cream company Mighty Moo’s clients are struggling to get their regular dose of their favourite dessert.

Speaking to EXPRESS on September 5, Mighty Moo business owner, Chris Kotze, said the construction has now moved to a new section of the road, which is directly outside his company.

“For about a month now, my customers and neighbour businesses’ customers have been unable to access our premises,” Kotze explained.

Kotze said his customers had to park on Energy Road and walk across the construction in order to access the firm.

To make matters worse, the frustrated businesses owner added that for two days the construction workers were not on site, causing a further delay in the completion of the project.

According to Kotze, they didn’t work on September 4 and September 5.

“We all know and appreciate the fact that these upgrades are necessary for the upliftment of the suburb, but they are really affecting our businesses negatively nonetheless.”
