Millions invested in Bontas town centre

Bonteheuwel Town Centre is in the process of getting a facelift.

This as the City of Cape Town set aside R6.1m for the first phase of the town centre’s upgrade during the 2020/2021 financial year.

Mayco member for urban management, Grant Twigg, on Wednesday 7 October handed over the site to the contractor.

He explained that the first phase comprises of the following components:

. The upgrade and rationalisation of fencing within the confines of the town centre, which includes the provision for vehicular gates, pedestrian gates and the construction of additional fencing.

. The upgrade and improvements to the structural integrity of the City-owned double-storey building, which accommodates shops and doctor’s rooms on the ground floor and offices on the top storey.

Local councillor, Angus McKenzie, has described the handing over of the site as a proud moment.

“This project has been driven by the people of Bonteheuwel and in a few short months residents will have a centre they can be proud of.

“Consistent change has been something that Bonteheuwel continues to experience and as our environment changes our lives and future will too,” said McKenzie.

Twigg explained that the Covid-19 pandemic brought the planning process to a halt. “We are delighted to officially hand over this site to the contractor to commence work. I want to encourage the community to take responsibility and ownership of this beautiful facility once complete. It is a facility to be proud of, from the architectural sketches to the designs.”

He said construction of the perimeter fence will commence during this month, while the upgrading of the double-storey building is expected to commence in January next year.

“The second phase will comprise of hard landscaping of the public space within the town centre. Design work has already commenced and work is anticipated to start in the 2022/2023 financial year.”

Sub-council chairperson, Courtney van Wyk said they are excited to see the project move beyond the paperwork.
