Open Streets Main Road aims to bridge social and spatial divides in Cape Town by encouraging people to think differently about how we move around in the city. (visit Open Streets)
October 1’s Open Streets will be the longest to date. It will entail close to 5km along Main Road between Observatory and the city centre. The main road will be closed to motorised vehicles and it will become an open space for pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders, wheelchair users and other non-motorised transport users to move in safety.
Bush Radio’s Sunday programmes will be broadcast from outside the building at 330 Victoria Road in support of the activities for the day. We encourage listeners and supporters of the Open Streets initiative to pop by the station and talk with us.
People are also encouraged to come and check out the station where volunteers and staff will give guided tours of the station, and share information on the work of Africa’s oldest community radio station project.
Open Streets Main Road and the Bush Radio “Pavement Broadcast” and Open House runs from 10am to 3pm.
