Comment on the proposed pedestrian bridge at Sesame Station, Lentegeur<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p>​After a feasibility study was undertaken to determine the most unsafe rail crossing ‘hot spots’ in Cape Town, we have concluded that an over-rail bridge at Sesame Station in Lentegeur, Mitchells Plain would be of significant benefit to the surrounding community. </p><p>The bridge would create a safer over-rail crossing point for residents, as well as safer access to nearby public amenities, including the future MyCiTi bus stop, which will be located on AZ Berman Drive, north of Sesame Street. </p><p>We aim to construct the new pedestrian bridge on City-owned land, either side of the railway line. Good lighting, which is discretely angled away from residential properties, will be included in the design to ensure high visibility when approaching and using the bridge. </p><p>In terms of Section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, you can submit comments to the municipality. </p><p> <a href="" target="_blank">Access the draft plan</a>. </p><h2 class="sectHeading">Comment period​​​​​​​</h2><p>Comments and objections may be submitted from <strong>29 March – 29 April 2021</strong>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Open day​​​​​​​</h2><p>We invite members of the public and interested and affected parties to view the proposed pedestrian bridge design and submit their comments at the following open day:</p> <span> <table style="width:478px;"><thead><tr><th>Date</th><td>Wednesday, 7 April 2021</td></tr></thead><tbody><tr><th>Time:</th><td>14:00 – 18:00</td></tr><tr><th rowspan="2">Venue(s)</th><td>Lentegeur council chambers <br>Cnr Melkbos and Merrydale roads, Lentegeur</td></tr><tr><td>​Northwood Community Hall, Woodlands</td></tr></tbody></table> ​​​</span> <h2 class="sectHeading">Submit your comment​​​​​​​</h2><p>Comments, inputs or recommendations may be submitted via the following channels: </p><p> <strong>Online </strong><br><a href="" target="_blank">Submit your comments online</a>. </p><p> <strong>Delivery</strong><br>Deliver your written comments by hand to: </p><p> <em><a href="">Subcouncil 23 offices</a> </em><br><em>Lentegeur administrative building </em><br><em>Cnr Melkbos and Merrydale Roads </em><br><em> Lentegeur</em></p><h2 class="sectHeading">Contact us​​​​​​​</h2><p><em>Telephone:<br><a> 0800 65 64 63</a></em> (free from a cellphone)</p><h4>Public Participation Unit</h4><h4>Anathi Dywili</h4><p> <em>Telephone:<br><a>021 400 9809</a><br><br> Email:<br><a href=""></a>  </em></p>GP0|#cc1f7b28-f43b-45ab-a0f2-08b4fefef7ed;L0|#0cc1f7b28-f43b-45ab-a0f2-08b4fefef7ed|Issues open for public comment;GTSet|#a7cfb90d-44ad-4426-98ce-565f79932396;GPP|#79e6adda-2aa2-4523-bc29-296828216c9329 March – 29 April 20210
