Information sessions on MyCiTi’s plans for Vredehoek, CBD and Atlantic Seaboard
The MyCiTi system is expanding across the peninsula, bringing reliable and effective public transport to all parts of Cape Town. The City of Cape Town will host a series of MyCiTi information sessions to inform the public about construction plans for the Vredehoek, the CBD and Atlantic Seaboard areas.
One of the next phases of the system’s development involves the smaller 9m buses that will operate in and around residential areas. Bus stops are planned that will allow level boarding into these smaller vehicles, on routes that will travel through residential areas.
At the information sessions, engineers will be present to explain the precise nature of the plans for the specific neighbourhoods. The public is encouraged to attend these sessions, and to ask any questions they may want to ask.
QUEENS ROAD AND SURROUNDS
Monday 23 July 2012 from 15:30 to 19:30, at the Peninsula Hotel
Before MyCiTi services are launched in the Sea Point area, it is proposed that Queens Road between Victoria Road and Kloof Road become a one-way street up towards the mountain. It is also proposed that Solomons Road is changed to a one-way road down towards the sea from Regent Road to the Piazza da Luz shopping centre parking entrance. This is to accommodate MyCiTi buses travelling along the road and avoid congestion. The section of Queens Road between Victoria Road and Beach Road will remain open for traffic in both directions. Vehicles wishing to travel between Kloof Road and Victoria and Regent Roads towards the sea can use Fir Avenue, Kings Road or Kei Apple Road.
The City of Cape Town hopes members of the public affected by these planned roadworks and construction projects will make use of the opportunity to be briefed on these plans.
