Those who have been to the promenade recently would have noticed the great improvements and additions to the area. We still have some way to go, and are undertaking the construction work in phases so that we can limit the inconvenience caused. We are confident that the long-term benefits will be enjoyed for decades to come,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>The Sea Point Promenade is the most frequented public space by people from different backgrounds – be it for a stroll, running, cycling, or to relax with children and pets. It is a place where people meet, interact and socialise. </p><p>‘It is more than just a space for locals. It is one of our city’s biggest assets and this is why we are also doing everything possible to improve the attractiveness of the area in general. The refurbishment will enhance the experience for both locals and visitors. </p><p>‘I urge visitors to the promenade to be patient and to exercise extra caution around the construction site given that some portions of the promenade are closed with barriers during construction. We will also ensure that appropriate signage directing pedestrians and cyclists away from the construction area onto alternative walkways, is clearly visible to all,’ said Councillor Herron. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-02-26T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#4a54b8b3-2e24-43b1-97bf-f98072923a26;L0|#04a54b8b3-2e24-43b1-97bf-f98072923a26|Sea Point;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#2d4609f8-ae85-4853-9be6-593871925eb4;L0|#02d4609f8-ae85-4853-9be6-593871925eb4|construction;GP0|#30aeff84-5964-4cbb-a7db-39cf413c64cf;L0|#030aeff84-5964-4cbb-a7db-39cf413c64cf|public space1
