Repair work to storm damage at the Sea Point Pavilion swimming pool will get underway next month.

The repairs have been included in the upgrade of the Sea Point Promenade, which is currently in its second phase.

Once construction work along the Sea Point Promenade between Rocklands Beach and Three Anchor Bay has been completed, residents and visitors to Cape Town will fully enjoy the benefits of this nine-year project that covers the rehabilitation of the promenade along Granger Bay, Mouille Point and Sea Point, says Mayco member for transport and urban development, Brett Herron.

The promenade reconstruction project will rehabilitate the seawall and repair storm damage along the Sea Point Promenade and at the Sea Point Pavilion swimming pool.

The first phase of the refurbishment of the seawall and the promenade between Three Anchor Bay and the Mouille Point Lighthouse was completed in 2015.

The second phase of this project is currently underway and consists of two portions that will be upgraded. The upgrade of the first portion entails the rehabilitation of the seawall between the Mouille Point Lighthouse and Granger Bay.

“It is wonderful to see some of the progress made in the first portion where we have completed the upgrade of the parking area at the Mouille Point Lighthouse. It has been opened recently and is very popular on weekends,” says Herron.

The upgrade of the second portion involves the rehabilitation of sections of the seawall on either side of Rocklands Beach. This work has been expanded to include the repairing of storm damage to sections of the seawall at the Sea Point Pavilion and between Rocklands Bay and Three Anchor Bay.

The rehabilitation of a section of the seawall at Rocklands is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed in May. Repair work to the Sea Point Pavilion swimming pool caused by storm damage is scheduled to start in April and should be completed at the end of June. The rehabilitation of the deflector wall between Hall and Norfolk roads is expected to be completed in November.

“Those who have been to the promenade recently would have noticed the great improvements and additions to the area. We still have some way to go and are undertaking the construction work in phases so that we can limit the inconvenience caused. We are confident that the long-term benefits will be enjoyed for decades to come,” says Herron.

“I urge visitors to the promenade to be patient and to exercise extra caution around the construction site given that some portions of the promenade are closed with barriers during construction. We will also ensure that appropriate signage directing pedestrians and cyclists away from the construction area onto alternative walkways is clearly visible to all.”
