LETTER: Tourists, pay up!

2017-01-31 06:02

The article about increased tourists (“City tourism numbers soar”, People’s Post, 24 January) celebrates the massive increase in tourism for the City so it is very disappointing for me not to get any responses from our mayor or her appropriate colleagues.

My queries are around housing in Ocean View which is a neighbouring suburb and from where many workers are drawn in the deep South.

Further, now that Ou Kaapse Weg and its surrounds are being upgraded, I’m wondering whether the touring companies are going to be making an additional contribution to the massive costs of this development.

Their coaches and minibuses derive great benefit from smooth flowing traffic systems as they go to and from Cape Point with 15% increase on last December!
