The City of Cape Town set the challenge allowing for proposals on how to deal with the unfinished bridges in CBD and potentially changing the face of the Foreshore.
Imagine Cape Town with it’s own version of the Eiffel Tower, futuristic elevated pod cars as modes of public transport, more open spaces and affordable housing within the CBD. The 6 proposals available for public viewing at the Cape Town Civic Centre gives you the opportunity to have your say and ultimately help choose what the future of the Foreshore will look like.
All proposals have the basic elements of reducing traffic congestion and providing affordable housing within the City Centre…I like the idea of promoting the use of public transport and upgrading the current systems, encouraging walking and cycling. I feel if the Trains, MyCiti, Minibus taxi’s and Bus routes are to be upgraded, safety on the routes should also be considered.
Judging by the proposals put forward the future of the Foreshore looks to be transformed drastically in the coming years…if this creates work opportunities and delivers on the affordable housing and more inclusive city as envisioned I am excited for a clean, greener congestion free CBD.
As public lets take this opportunity to be a part of the change, participate, if you are a young person interested this field who knows what other doors will open up by visiting the exhibition and speaking to the people involved…lets work together and Transform Cape Town for All.
The exhibition runs until the 21 March 2017 at the Cape Town Civic Centre between 8.30am and 4pm.
