The City of Cape Town has
completed its upgrade of the Langa Station South public open space at a cost of
more than R10,5 million.
This project forms part of the
City’s commitment to investing in historically under-invested areas.
Councillor Johan van der Merwe,
Mayoral Committee Member for Energy, Environmental and Spatial Planning, says “It forms part of our City rights efforts to
create innovative and inclusive community and commuter friendly spaces.”
He adds that “We, however need our communities to take
ownership of these spaces and to be actively involved in the promotion of these
“It’s only through the support of our residents and communities that we
can change the face of our communities by building quality driven, safe public
spaces which are effectively used by local neighbourhoods. We want to improve
the quality of life of our residents, and we remain committed to drive
investment in our previously disadvantaged areas.” He concludes.
