City makes progress with Glencairn Beach Precinct Upgrade <p>​During the site visit, Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt assessed the recently refurbished coastal walkway, which runs from the railway bridge along the southern edge of the bay to the tidal pool. </p><p>The City’s Coastal Management team prioritised completing the refurbishment of the Glencairn Coastal Walkway as well as the Kommetjie Walkway over the last few months. This investment has seen over 2km of public coastal walkways refurbished.</p><span> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:893px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>‘The repair and refurbishment to the walkway has had an immediate and significant impact on improving the quality of the environment and the user experience. The very positive response we have received from the public on the repaired walkway reaffirms that all our coastal walkways are extremely popular and must therefore be properly maintained. This maintenance project will go a long way in ensuring we preserve the walkways for many decades to come,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Nieuwoudt. </p><p>Alderman Nieuwoudt was also able to assess the progress made with the complete upgrade and paving of the Glencairn Beach Parking area, which includes a new public ablution facility. This project is expected to be completed in the next six months, if all goes as planned. </p><p>In addition, the City also partnered with Creative Care to do some public artwork in the Glencairn subway. Apart from brightening up the walls of the subway, the artwork aims to showcase the very special marine biodiversity that we share our tidal pools with under the banner of “Meet the Locals”.</p><p>‘Future upgrade plans for the Glencairn Beach precinct includes placing the dune on the northern section of the beach under management. This process will start in the next financial year and will aim to improve the quality of the natural environment while reducing windblown sand onto the railway line, parking area and main road’, said Alderman Nieuwoudt.<br></p>2021-05-25T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#5480e777-2da6-4593-b5f5-2fbd6c52eaa3;L0|#05480e777-2da6-4593-b5f5-2fbd6c52eaa3|spatial planning;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#0c4188de-8fd0-4c65-ad50-f8de6fb0dd9c;L0|#00c4188de-8fd0-4c65-ad50-f8de6fb0dd9c|repairs and maintenance10
