. In 1845 one of the first roads from Stellenbosch through to the Maitland area was completed. This effectively connected Cape Town to the rest of Africa. At that time the dunes on the Cape Flats prevented much traffic between these two locations and the railway line reached Maitland in 1862. The area has always been an important transport hub. It is currently quite a trendy place to be because it’s closeness to the city and it’s access to transport.
Maitland is the home of the largest cemetery in the Cape with the largest crematorium.

The postal codes for Maitland are 7405 (streets) and 7404(boxes)
