Promenade upgrade resumes

2017-08-01 06:01

Following damage during the severe storm on Wednesday 7 June, work on the refurbishment of the Sea Point Promenade and sea wall has resumed.

The City of Cape Town’s Transport and Urban Development Authority has resumed the repair work, between the Mouille Point Lighthouse and Granger Bay, after it was interrupted by the storm and subsequent inclement weather conditions.

The project includes the upgrade of the existing parking area at the Mouille Point Lighthouse. The parking upgrade consists of an additional 24 bays to the existing parking, new paved surfacing for the parking area and surrounding sidewalks, and stairs and access ramps between the parking area and the promenade.

To minimise inconvenience to the public, the work will be implemented in two stages, says Mayco member (North) Suzette Little.

During the first stage, the parking area above the Mouille Point pump station will be closed to the public from Monday 21 August. During the second stage, the parking area above the Mouille Point pump station as well as along the lighthouse entrance road will be closed from September. The areas are expected to be reopened in October.

The public will not have access to the affected sections of the parking areas and entrance road for the duration of the works.

“The stairs, access ramps, and additional parking bays will make the area more accessible to members of the public, while the repairs will ensure an aesthetically pleasing space,” says Little.

“We urge visitors to please work with us and obey the signage during this period. The closure of the parking area is in the interest of safety and getting the work done as quickly as possible.”
