On Sunday January 15, during “Open Streets City Centre”, Bree Street will be car-free between 10am and 3pm.
An open planning session will be taking place today, Thursday December 8, at the Beautifull Life building, 72 Bree Street, from 5.30pm till 7pm. Building on the series of Open Streets Days that has taken place across the metropole, Open Streets and the City of Cape Town will join forces once again to bring the event to the CBD, this time to test new pedestrian-prioritisation ideas for the CBD, while continuing to lay a foundation for a long-term Open Streets programme for Cape Town.
The City’s Mayco member for transport, Brett Herron, said: “The City supports Open Streets as a platform to demonstrate the potential of streets by making some of them temporarily car free.”
Open Streets’s managing director, Marcela Guerrero Casas, added: “We believe Open Streets can bring our neighbourhoods a little closer together and connect us all in an inclusive and playful environment. It is a simple but powerful way to establish common ground and an opportunity to explore a space that belongs to all.”
