Grassy Park has a large population of people who walk as their dominant mode of transport. This new infrastructure will have significant impact on improving road safety for both pedestrians and cyclists. This project has been ongoing since September 2021. We are pleased with the quality of work, proving that the Directorate's quality control practices are effective.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/pavementsgp2.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:882px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>'Cape Town is a walking city, which is especially prevalent in lower income communities. Safe and universally accessible infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists is one of Mayor's priorities, so we are pleased that the City continues to make progress in expanding the non-motorised transport network. The Portfolio Committee has taken a keen interest in the next phase of the non-motorised transport programme, and we are looking forward to seeing the programme go from strength to strength,' said the Chairperson of the City's Portfolio Committee on Urban Mobility, Councillor Mikhail Manuel.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/pavementsgp3.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:872px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p><strong>Captions:</strong> Members of the City's Portfolio Committee on Urban Mobility visited Grassy Park earlier today where new walkways are constructed. The project started in September 2021 and should be complete before the end of the year, if all goes as planned. Work is currently taking place along 4<sup>th</sup> Avenue. About 9% of Capetonians walk to their destinations, as such, the City is committed to improving walkways incrementally, across the metro. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2022-10-25T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#b3ccd6b4-71ad-4eb0-893f-128e60af1a2d;L0|#0b3ccd6b4-71ad-4eb0-893f-128e60af1a2d|Grassy Park;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513;L0|#0f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513|roads10
