Pedestrian crossing represents the penguins of Simon’s Town<p>​</p><p>'The Simon's Town, Boulders Beach area is globally famous for the colony of African Penguins, a much loved feature of the south peninsula, loved by locals and visitors alike. This new partnered art pedestrian crossing depicting adorable penguins in standing, diving and swimming positions is thanks to the local ratepayers associations, penguin friends and the City's Urban Mobility Directorate in advising, consulting and approving the installation. We have over the past two years invested in, or approved partner installed place making pedestrian crossings and other 'pavement' public art in order to create an urban streetscape energy or indicate heritage, tourism and cultural precincts,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slide="1" data-slides="3" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/DSC_1968.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p>newly painted penguin pedestrian crossing in Simon’s Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/DSC_1976.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p>newly painted penguin pedestrian crossing in Simon’s Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/DSC_2039.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p>newly painted penguin pedestrian crossing in Simon’s Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a href="#" title="title"> <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><strong>End</strong><br></p>2023-12-11T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513;L0|#0f1734e52-da42-4cfc-a3a5-3514093d3513|roads;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#481e5da6-7d29-42d9-8aae-89db23b92054;L0|#0481e5da6-7d29-42d9-8aae-89db23b92054|simons town10
