A public meeting about the proposed relief road for Wynberg will take place on Wednesday 15 October at 7.00 pm.
Venue: Church on Main, 3 Millbank Road, Wynberg (behind the library)
Why this meeting:
For the past six months, Wynberg residents have been asking the City of Cape Town for more information about whether they are really going to build a road through the middle of residential Wynberg. Residents have repeatedly been told that they must wait until the conceptual designs have been done for any public participation process and that nothing had been finalised.
Yet the City’s actions do not match its words. The City appears to be proceeding with the proposed relief road, under the guise that it’s necessary for the BRT / MyCiti bus, as:
In August, the Protea Subcouncil would have voted to demolish a house in Wellington Road (to make way for the relief road) but could not because the heritage permit had not been obtained.
The WRRA has been told that our requests for traffic-calming measures will only be “considered after construction of the MyCiti bus route along the Main Road / Brodie Road Couplet”.
Purpose of the meeting:
The aim of the meeting is to show the proposed “preferred option” for the relief road known as the Brodie Road couplet, as the WRRA believes that property owners, residents and businesses need to be informed and to have their say.
