Con­nect­ing com­mu­nity

The Star Early Edition - - METRO WATCH -

A pedes­trian bridge is un­der con­struc­tion in West­bury. It is in­tended to give res­i­dents a safe pas­sage over a busy main artery and con­nect them di­rectly to West­bury’s BRT sta­tion. It will also fea­ture a green open pub­lic space com­plete with an am­phithe­atre, out­door gym and play area for chil­dren.

It is be­ing built over Fuel Road in prox­im­ity to Rea Vaya’s West­bury sta­tion, and will con­nect Kret­zschmar Street in West­bury with Kowie Street in neigh­bour­ing Corona­tionville. It is hoped the am­phithe­atre will at­tract visi­tors, giv­ing them more op­tions for en­ter­tain­ment and will also cater for the area’s chil­dren.

PIC­TURE: ELIAS NKABINDE

HOPE: The West­bury pedes­trian bridge am­phithe­atre will pro­vide an ex­cel­lent venue for con­certs.
