Solution for unfinished CT freeway

The City of Cape Town and the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment have joined forces to develop a creative conceptual future for the unfinished Foreshore freeway, its un-built remnants and the surrounding area.

Through the partnership, the city will utilise the skills and knowledge of students from UCT’s engineering and built environment disciplines to influence the future design of urban space in the city.

Plans to develop the Foreshore precinct and the unfinished freeways had been in discussion for quite some time and when the opportunity came to form a unique collaboration with UCT, the city was eager to get involved.

“We are very excited about this collaboration and have great anticipation of what kinds of proposals we will receive.

"We have placed no limitations and have expressed very few expectations, and we look forward to receiving implementable and feasible solutions,” says the City’s mayoral committee member for transport, roads and stormwater, Councillor Brett Herron.

Students at UCT will be tasked to produce proposals for the future of the Foreshore part of the city.

They will review existing proposed conceptual design reports, consider new alternatives and take into account examples from other cities in the world, as well as the needs and priorities of the residents of Cape Town.

Their proposals will also need to consider the long-term future of the metropolitan area, as well as the resource and environmental requirements of the future.
