We invite you to walk and talk along a segment of Albert Road, Woodstock on 25 November. We will be discussing streetscaping, street design and Universal Access, in collaboration with NOAH, an organisation providing care and support to pensioners. The Universal Access approach to designing our streets means that all users, particularly those with special needs, are accommodated.
Over the past three years, the City of Cape Town has been making improvements to at least 72 intersections in the CBD including Woodstock. Sidewalks have been retrofitted with special features such as bump-outs, signal control, bollards, and widening sidewalks. In line with its Universal Access Policy, the City of Cape Town expresses support for the incremental fixing and improvements of streets, and requires that all new investments in transport infrastructure be universally accessible.
Quality design will make a significant impact on the functionality and enjoyment of our streets. As Open Streets Cape Town (OSCT) we believe that embedding respect in our streets can lead us to truly change them as public spaces that are inclusive and conducive to a prosperous society.
Join us as we discuss the quality of streets along Albert Road, looking at the various initiatives undertaken, and where recommendations can be made for future improvements in line with the City’s Universal Access Policy.
RSVP here by Friday 17 November, 2017
Talking Streets is part of our work in partnership with the WWF Nedbank Green Trust
