The Wynberg community, held a public meeting on 2 December 2014 to share information with residents and businesses about the City’s plans for the so-called Lansdowne-Wetton corridor between Khayelitsha/Mitchells Plain and Wynberg/Claremont. On display were maps from the City’s tender for the “provision of professional services in respect of the design & construction of phase 2A infrastructure: trunk & feeder support infrastructure (east & west)” that was advertised in the Cape Times on 5 September and closed on 28 October 2014.
Kristina Davidson of the WRRA gave a presentation, which described the background, the City’s proposed route and the community’s alternative routes. The main purpose of the meeting was to allow people at the meeting to ask questions. Representatives of the South Road Families Association (SRFA), the WRRA and the transport industry (taxi associations from both East and West Wynberg) were on hand to answer questions. For many residents and businesses, this was the first time they had seen the proposed MyCiti route.
The SRFA, WRRA and transport industry in Wynberg plan to organise further public information sessions over the next couple of months.
