Open Streets is a first step in reclaiming the streets for the non-motorised public, thereby fostering a sense of community and building good relations between people. In the long run I would like to see hundreds of kilometers of public streets closed to motorised traffic and opened to the rest, some permanently and some on set days.

Cape Town is such a divided city. If the first step is implemented, it will help break down those divisions and build the community. That process will continue as more and more streets are opened.
