Good news: Part of troublesome canal to be fenced off

Rubbish left by people in the canal

Good news story 1: Funding has been approved by the City to fence off the Wynberg Canal between Piers and Vriedenhof Road!

Good news story 2: The project will be completed by the end of June 2017!

At the January meeting of Subcouncil 20 (of which our Ward 62 forms part) Cllr Liz Brunette submitted a motion for funding of the canal. Funding was approved a few weeks later by the City’s new Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA). Funding will come from the TDA’s Assets and Infrastructure Department.

This is excellent news for residents in the area, who have been complaining for years that burglaries in the area are often launched from the Canal.
