Lentegeur Pedestrian Bridge

 Areas affected: Lentegeur, Mitchells Plain

 Start date: October 2022

 Planned end date: December 2023

What's planned

 Construction is set to start on a new bridge that will make it safer and easier for residents in New Woodlands to cross the railway line and access MyCiTi services.

The elevated bridge will enable much-needed, safe passage for pedestrians over the railway line from New Woodlands to Lentegeur, and smooth access for those with wheelchairs, bicycles and prams. It will be located between Rosa Hope and Moses Kottler Crescents in New Woodlands, and will link with AZ Berman Drive in Lentegeur.

This means easy access to MyCiTi services at the existing Sesame stop and a number of planned services at the future Sesame station as part of Phase 2A.

Phase 2A will link Mitchells Plain to Claremont and Wynberg with direct, quality public transport services.

Other benefits for residents include:

  • Easier access to the Watergate Shopping Centre, the Mitchells Plain Hospital and other shops and services along AZ Berman Drive
  • Overhead lighting along the bridge for better visibility and CCTV cameras to improve safety
  • Greening and landscaping measures to uplift the immediate surroundings and create a more pleasant experience for everyone

Construction is planned from October 2022 until December 2023. There will be local labour and subcontracting opportunities. Anyone interested should register on the Subcouncil database.
