The City of Cape Town commenced work on its 12-month-long Sea Point Promenade and Granger Bay parking area project on May 15.
The project will bring about new and upgraded walkways, public art, coastal structures, a play park, parking area, lawn and coastal vegetation areas.
The Granger Bay parking area will be upgraded and will be closed for public use for the duration of the construction period.
Provisions for temporary traffic and pedestrians have been made and signage will be placed in affected areas.
The scheduled work for the Sea Point Promenade and Granger Bay parking area project is as follows:
- Upgrading of Granger Bay parking area
- Construction of a rock revetment
- New Fort Road play park
- Additional walkways
- Additional coastal vegetation and lawn planting
- Installation of interpretive signage to give heritage information
- Public art in the Sea Point Library
The City’s Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews said that the City is working towards a greener Sea Point Promenade with two added walkways connecting the promenade to Beach Road and a play park.
Alderman Andrews added: “We cannot wait for you to see the outcomes that will include a public art display inside the Sea Point Library. The upgrade of the Granger Bay parking area will also make way for more parking, with formalised bays demarcated. The Sea Point Promenade is an iconic destination and one of the most popular among locals and visitors. We are continuously improving the infrastructure and look forward to seeing more visitors once the project is complete.”
