CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Transport Department and provincial Public Works Ministry on Thursday confirmed that Chapman's Peak Drive was closed until further notice.

Officials blamed what they called "slope failure".

Transport spokesperson Hector Elliot said, "Due to the continuing rain, a decision was taken to close the pass pending an inspection."
