The Cape Town International Convention Centre’s (CTICC) sky bridge is taking shape over Heerengracht Avenue. The soaring steel-and-glass design, which will connect the CTICC’s two buildings, is already attracting the attention of the public and those hosting events at the centre.

“We are very excited about our sky bridge which we believe is both beautiful and functional. The sky bridge is being constructed to connect CTICC 1 and CTICC 2 and will allow for the seamless movement of delegates between the two buildings. Our clients love the design of the bridge as well as the integrated CTICC complex that the bridge facilitates. As a world-class venue the CTICC is now able to welcome more events as well as host large-scale events across both buildings,” says Julie-May Ellingson, CTICC CEO.

The 70m-long bridge comprises a steel frame with a concrete floor and roof, supported by slanted columns. Aluminium fins finish off the bottom. Full glass sides will reveal views across the city, up the Heerengracht Avenue/Adderley Street axis, to Table Mountain.

The CTICC has already secured several bookings, many of which are international conferences that will take place either in CTICC 2 or across both buildings.

“The views from the sky bridge across our beautiful city will be incredible and will certainly add to the extraordinary experience of attending an event at the CTICC. We look forward to welcoming Capetonians and visitors to experience walking across the sky bridge when it is complete,” adds Ellingson.
