The City of Cape Town plans to revitilise the CBD back to its full glory, and the Strand Street Concourse is on the menu.

Cllr Stuart Diamond, Mayoral Committee Member for Assets and Facilities Management, chats to John Maytham about the project.

The Concourse has become run down and rather seedy over the years, but Counsellor Diamond says this will soon be in the past.

When it's finished we are going to have a brand new space.

He says the two municipal courts, currently in the City Hall, are moving to the Concourse.

We'll have some brand new cash offices for people to pay their fines once they have come out of the courts.

Brand new escalators will replace the current ones that have been damaged for a long time, brand new shop fronts are being installed, new tiling, ventilation, air conditioning and more.

Essentially creating a space people want to be in...and we will be bringing services to the people.

It is taking the seedy element away and making a safe space for people to walk through.

62 000 people move through the space per day.

These municipal pay offices will stay open later to accommodate passers by after work.

The project is in the last stages and cost R2.1 million.

23 July is the estimated finishing date.
