New pedestrian sidewalks for Ward 64
​The City recently installed new pedestrian sidewalks in Ward 64.
TO CREATE a safe, attractive and functional public realm, new pedestrian sidewalks have been built in Ward 64. Ward 64 Councillor Gavin Hegter said construction of the sidewalks, situated at Kenyon Howden Road, Seaview and Montclair Road in Montclair commenced in mid-June and was completed in mid-July. “Both roads are busy and traffic is heavy.

Montclair Road is near a school and Kenyon Howden has a lot of activities nearby such as a public pool, food outlets which create a lot of foot traffic. This sidewalk project will serve as a safe alternative for pedestrians to avoid accidents,” said Councillor Hegter. In addition, another pavement project is nearing completion on Coedmore Road in Seaview.

Councillor Hegter said this project is funded through the Municipality’s capital budget, adding that as part of the City’s effort to create employment for residents, construction work was being done by local contractors. “As a community representative, it is my duty to make double efforts in attracting necessary service delivery within the area,” he added. Councillor Hegter added that he has requested a budget for traffic calming for several roads in his ward in a bid to reduce accidents.

A Montclair resident, Lungile Mfeka applauded the councillor for his efforts in ensuring that this project is a success. “We now enjoy jogging because we don’t have to compete with cars anymore. Montclair Junior and Senior Primary School learners walk safely on the pavement.”
