R5m Grand Parade upgrade to revamp tourism, boost safety

City of Cape Town's R5million Grand Parade upgrading sets to renovate tourism in the CBD.

On Friday, Mayor Dan Plato spoke about more than R5 million upgrading of the Grand Parade kiosks in the Cape Town central business area being undertaken by the City of Cape Town will guarantee the iconic public space becomes a hive of activity for Capetonians and visitors to the city. This week, Plato, accompanied by the City’s mayoral committee members, visited the recently revamped Grand Parade kiosks as part of the mayoral committee’s oversight role.

Dan Plato said, the upgrade has also permitted for extra safety, as there is now a devoted area for law enforcement agencies to have a permanent and significant presence at the Grand Parade. During his engagement with the traders, they received much positive feedback about the improved public space and their trading spaces. Although not fully complete, with the upgrade of the remaining purification services still on-going, Plato and his team had the opportunity to visit the newly constructed first floor CCTV operations room and law enforcement command center, which will facilitate direct district policing and enhanced visible security in the space. 

The mayoral committee member for economic opportunities and asset management, James Vos said. The City has supplied a fantastic upgrade to the trader area which establishes the keystone of the Tourism Triangle revelation. He would like to thank all of persons involved in turning this project into reality, and more particularly thanking the Grand Parade kiosk traders for their endurance and assistance during the renovation period.
