This includes the rehabilitation of Klipfontein Road at a cost of R18m, which is scheduled for completion in November, and the upgrading of parks and installation of new equipment and fencing, including the Manenberg Urban Park, Venster Park, Houw Hoek Road Park, Sherwood Park and Seine Road Park.

It also includes the identification of Manenberg as a priority area for the smart trees programme whereby large trees will be planted during this financial year.

There will also be reading sessions at the Manenberg library for preschool children, as well as holiday programmes at libraries and recreation centres.

There will be free internet access in the Manenberg library and a synthetic soccer pitch worth R5.5m.

There is also investment in an alcohol and substance abuse treatment site in Ruimte Road, which opened in February.

“As you can see, there is much to be done, but we believe that if we rally together as the whole of society, we can transform Manenberg into the vibrant, safe and sustainable community we envision,” Zille and De Lille say.V
