The restoration of one of Cape Town’s oldest network links is currently underway in Milnerton. Work is currently underway on the 120-year historic wooden bridge which has been closed for several years now. As a provincial heritage site, and the only bridge of its kind left in the country, the City of Cape Town has undertaken its restoration which will be completed in the second half of 2019.
The bridge will provide cycle and pedestrian access between Woodbridge Island and Marine Drive where it intersects with a dedicated cycle path to Table View and central Cape Town, providing a link in the city’s growing NMT network. The surrounding public space is also being upgraded with seating areas, landscaping and informational signage about this unique heritage and nature area with its dramatic views of Table Mountain.
