Plans to further uplift Bellville CBD area are under way<p>This project will include the upgrading of Kruskal Avenue, and Lower Blanckenberg Street. The second phase of this upgrade will extend from Cross Street, situated south of Voortrekker Road, to Bellville Station. <br></p><div>‘The upgrading of the hard and soft landscaping of Kruskal Avenue will act as a catalyst in the regeneration of the surrounding area. I urge residents to attend the open day and to provide input on the design proposals for the area. Our main aim here is to improve the pedestrian environment in the area and to create investor confidence in the Bellville CBD. We believe this upgrade project could change the public’s perceptions of the Bellville CBD by strategically upgrading the one gateway into the Bellville CBD along Voortrekker Road Corridor,’ said the Deputy Mayor and the Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews. </div><div> <br></div><div><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Picture3%20edited.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:880px;" /><br></div><div><br></div><div>The details of the open day are as follows:</div><div>Date: Wednesday, 6 April 2022</div><div>Time: 12:00 to 18:00</div><div>Venue: Outside Middestad Mall Entrance, Kruskal Avenue</div><div> </div><div>The detailed design, which is in currently in process, includes plans for the installation of new lighting; benches, paving, irrigation and public art.
