Are you a local resident or business owner? Or do you simply want to be involved in the next Open Streets Day? Join in and help us make it better for everyone to enjoy shared public space. We need as many people as possible to take part and create the day together.
This Q&A session is a public meeting, open to all, and will create a space for sharing questions, concerns and ideas.
More information about Open Streets Main Road:
Building on the successful Open Streets Main Road on 1 October 2017, a second Open Streets Day is planned along the same route on Sunday 25 February 2018. The aim will be to incorporate feedback and lessons learned the first time around, to further test the feasibility of a regular network of longer road closures.
We invite you to share your feedback and ideas for a follow-up car-free corridor along the M4 in Observatory, Salt River, Woodstock, District Six and City Centre.

WHAT IS OPEN STREETS?
Open Streets Main Road builds on a local programme inspired by Colombia’s Ciclovía. The concept is to close down a street temporarily so that it becomes car-free. It’s a chance for people to reclaim streets as public space, for walking, cycling, skating, playing, exploring and general socialising. Open Streets suspends reality and allows us to imagine a new “normal” for our streets. Watch a short video here: https://youtu.be/
