Comment on the proposed temporary closure of the subway in Dean Street, Newlands<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About</h2></span> <p>The subway on Dean Street in Newlands was first used to manage large volumes of people attending events and sports matches at Newlands Stadium. </p><p> Due to the proposed change of use, these events do not take place at the stadium anymore and will no longer take place in future. As a result, the subway is underutilised and has become an issue of public safety. </p><p> We propose that the subway be temporarily closed to resolve the public safety issue. Pedestrians will still be able to use the alternative safe, signalised crossing at the intersection of Dean Street and Main Road. </p><h4> The temporary closure of the subway will involve: </h4><ul><li>The installation of lockable gates at each end of the tunnel </li><li>The opening and closing of these gates each day. The gates will open at 06:00 and close at 18:00 each day. </li></ul><p>The Groote Schuur Community Improvement District (GSCID) will take responsibility for opening and closing the gates each day. Alternatively, the Newlands Residents Association security team is available 24/7 to assist. </p><p><a href="" target="_blank">View the Locality Map</a>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Comment period</h2><p>Comments and objections may be submitted from <strong>24 June – 24 July 2021</strong>. </p><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 20 Office </a></em><br><em>Alphen Centre </em><br><em>Constantia Main Road </em><br><em>Constantia</em></p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> Our Public Participation Unit will assist you if you would like to submit comments but have a disability, or are unable to read or write.
