City cancels Request for Proposals for Foreshore Freeway Precinct development The City of Cape Town’s City Manager has, upon receiving legal advice, taken the decision to cancel the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of the Foreshore Freeway Precinct.<p>The City of Cape Town’s City Manager has, upon receiving legal advice, taken the decision to cancel the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of the Foreshore Freeway Precinct.</p><p>The six bidders were notified of the decision in writing on Friday, 13 July 2018.</p><p>The Stage 1 bid evaluation process was concluded in February 2018. Several appeals and objections were lodged that contested the application of the evaluation criteria as set out in the RFP documentation. </p><p>Having received legal advice, the City concluded that a lack of sufficient clarity in the RFP documentation rendered the evaluation criteria vague.</p><p>‘Procurement processes must be compliant with the rule of law, in particular with Section 217 of the Constitution which governs public procurement. There must be no doubt about the integrity of these processes and, as such, I have decided to cancel the RFP. </p><p>‘Furthermore, the economic outlook for the country has become significantly weaker since the issuing of the RFP two years ago. This change, together with the additional burdens that the City, its ratepayers, and residents are facing at the moment, cannot be ignored. The City is, therefore, reconsidering the future of this project, and we will communicate further once a decision has been made.</p><p>‘In the meantime, I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of the bidders who submitted proposals and representations,’ said Mr Lungelo Mbandazayo, the City Manager.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-17T22:00:00Z1
City ramps up services at Safe Space for street peopleThe Safe Space pilot project has been open on a small scale for the past two weeks to test the intake system and site operation. <span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/safe%202.jpg" style="width:479px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure>The Safe Space pilot project has been open on a small scale for the past two weeks to test the intake system and site operation. The response from street people and other role players has been very positive.</span><p>‘There are 15 street people who have been accommodated thus far and all have returned nightly since we opened. They have provided valuable feedback and we now have a list of street people who have expressed interest in being accommodated at the site once it is fully operational,’ said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p> <span><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/safe%203.jpg" style="width:479px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <p>The Safe Space is a transitional shelter which provides overnight shelter to up to 230 street people at a facility underneath the Culemborg Bridge on the Foreshore. </p> <p>‘Already many of those who have made use of the facility have indicated that they feel safe and are glad to be off the streets and receiving social assistance. Living on the street isn’t easy and neither is sleeping on the street. It’s cold, wet, uncomfortable and then there is the constant threat of having your meagre possessions stolen or of being attacked,’ said Alderman Smith.<br>At the Safe Space, street people can make use of basic services like ablutions, water and storage lockers, and from August they will also have access to health services and assistance to help them with any substance abuse issues.</p> <p>‘The space has only just opened and already there is a waiting list. We hope that street people will embrace the services offered, which in turn will lead them off the path of homelessness and eventually to becoming reintegrated into the community,’ said Alderman Smith.</p> <p>Street people using the facility are assigned a storage locker, a sleeping pallet, sleeping bag and blanket as well as a wellness pack containing hygiene essentials. </p> <p>‘External service providers are providing soup kitchens and cleaning services, while the site will have a dedicated Law Enforcement team for security. Another aim of the project is to take pressure off existing shelters,’ said Alderman JP Smith.<br>Alderman Smith also lauded partners, role-players and others who have stepped up to the plate.<br>‘It will take a collective effort to help people get off the street and become part of our society again. We’ve had some partners who have come on board in a big way,’ said Alderman Smith. </p> <span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/safe1.jpg" style="width:511px;" /><figcaption> <p>© City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure>FNB has donated sleeping bags, while the V&A Waterfront  has partnered to assist with job opportunities for some of the street people in the Expanded Public Works Programme and who have successfully completed development programmes.<br>The Cape Town Central City Improvement District has provided sleeping bags, wellness packs, assistance with identifying street people for the space and assistance with security patrols.</span></span><p>It is not a permanent solution, but is aimed at providing temporary relief to street people.<br>‘We don’t want the homeless to see sleeping on the street as the best long-term choice open to them.

Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, also braved getting onto a skateboard to test the facility.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Woodstock%20skate%20park%203.jpg" alt="" style="width:892px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>The 2015 South African skateboard champion, Shuaib Philander from Woodstock, was at the facility and gave Councillor Herron a few tips on how to skateboard. </p><p>‘The skateboard community is very happy to have its first transitional skatepark. It is a concrete ramp that imitates a wave which is how skateboarding was started. It involves lots of ramps and has curvatures. We love the skatepark that we have here,’ said Mr Philander, who has been skateboarding for 13 years.</p><p>Skateboarder and BMX rider Sergei Pringiers from Rondebosch welcomed the new skateboard park.</p><p>‘It is very nice to have the facility here. It is a bit steep but that’s because we are not used to it. The facility is pretty well-rounded and I like how it has different features. It is a good place for people to hang out and stay safe,’ he said.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Woodstock%20skate%20park1.jpg" alt="" style="width:904px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>The construction of the skateboard park commenced in February and the final snags were addressed last week.</p><p>‘It is very exciting to hear that this site was so popular during the school holidays. I believe the skateboarders were so eager and couldn’t wait for the final snags to be completed. I am confident that this facility will provide our emerging and local talent with a platform to hang out together, hone their skills and to have fun in a safe and well-designed space that they can enjoy. It is one of the City’s priorities to build integrated communities by attracting a diverse pool of talent and creating a culture where talent can thrive,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>The skateboard park is situated on the eastern side of the Woodstock Town Hall Park along Victoria Road, between Plein and Aberdeen Streets.</p><p>The project, which amounts to approximately R675 000, has been funded from the City’s capital budget.</p><p>Furthermore, non-potable water from treated effluent was used to premix the concrete that was required for this project. </p><p>Councillor Herron was the ward councillor in 2014 when the proposal for this park emerged during discussions with the local community and the skateboarding fraternity about the revitalisation of the Woodstock Town Hall precinct, as part of the World Design Capital co-design ward project. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Woodstock%20skate%20park2.jpg" alt="" style="width:874px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span>​​</span><span>​​</span><p>‘It has been a fantastic journey to see how this Woodstock skateboard park has grown from being an idea to a reality which will benefit and empower our local talent. I want to thank the community, including the skateboarders, for sharing their valuable input relating to the location of the site, the planning, and in the design stages of the project. This project is a sterling example of the value of partnerships between local government and residents,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>The Woodstock Town Hall precinct has already received some upgrades since 2014, which includes the paving of the area between the town hall, library and park with red brick and cobbles, as well as providing seven additional parking bays to the existing parking area adjacent to the town hall.</p><p>Councillor Suzette Little, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Area North, said the park is a welcome asset for the community.</p><p>‘Our communities need spaces such as this which promote healthy, active living, where young people can channel their energy into improving their talents while having fun in a safe environment. I encourage our local skateboarders to make the most of this facility and to look after it so that more talent can be nurtured on these ramps,’ said Councillor Little. <br> </p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-16T22:00:00Z1
Street lighting programme driving energy efficiency, reducing long-term costs The programme to replace high intensity discharge (HID) lamps with light-emitting diode (LED) technology is lighting up the way for motorists and pedestrians with a characteristic white hue along roadways. <p>The programme to replace high intensity discharge (HID) lamps with light-emitting diode (LED) technology is lighting up the way for motorists and pedestrians with a characteristic white hue along roadways. </p><p>The City has budgeted approximately R20 million in this new financial year to replace more HID lamps with LED lights. To date, some 820 km of roads have been retrofitted across the metro. City investigations indicate that a saving of about 40% can be achieved compared with an HID fitting with the same light intensity.  </p><p>An HID lamp has a usable life expectancy of about four years. In comparison, an LED fitting can last for as long as 25 years. In theory, if an LED fitting is installed correctly and is not tampered with while in operation, it should not require maintenance for the full life of the fitting.</p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slides="3" data-slide="1" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/LEDproject1.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b></b></a>The first phase of the M3 refurbishment project </p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/ledproject2.jpg" alt="" style="width:2140px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>The first phase of the M3 refurbishment project </p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/leDproject3.jpg" alt="" style="width:2140px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>The first phase of the M3 refurbishment project </p> </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b>Aerial view of Cape Town</b></a> - Loren ipsum dolor sit amet loren ipsum dolor sit amet Loren ipsum dolor sit amet.</p></div><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="nav-info">1 of 3</div><div class="slide-next"> <i class="icon arrow-white-next"></i> </div><div class="slide-prev"> <i class="icon arrow-white-prev"></i>​</div></div></div></div>​​</span><p> </p><p>The first phase of the M3 refurbishment project (illustrated in the embedded photographs) is a recent project that has been completed on a 1,5 km stretch of road between the Princess Anne and Woolsack off-ramps. This particular project has included the replacement of 82 lights at a cost of R952 656. Once the full scope of the project is completed, the full length of the M3 from Buitengracht Street to Klaassens Road will be lit with LED technology. The full extent of the refurbishment will be 13,5 km of lighting on both sides of the roadway.</p><p>This programme will see the roll-out of LED technology to major and minor roads within the areas being upgraded. The most recent areas where this programme was rolled out include Protea Park in Atlantis; Manenberg; the Gugulethu Phase 4 housing project; Lavender Hill; Bay View; Mandalay in Mitchells Plain; and Silvertown in Athlone. </p><p>‘All of the City’s traffic lights and 15% of the street lights have been retrofitted with LEDs or energy-efficient bulbs. This is part of our efforts to become a more sustainable city and to use technology and innovation to the advantage of our residents and businesses. Becoming more efficient is also necessary to enhancing the resilience of this city. The cost of an LED fitting is still higher at this stage but it is coming down. It is projected that the lower energy usage and the reduced maintenance requirements of an LED fitting will result in substantial savings for the City over the life of the unit,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, Councillor Xanthea Limberg. </p><p>Refurbishment projects that will be done in this new financial year include Wesbank, Protea Valley, Avondale, Fairfield Estate, Killarney Gardens, Primrose Park and Bhunga Drive. </p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-16T22:00:00Z1
