On Sunday 1 October, a 5km section of Cape Town’s M4 (aka Main Road) will be reserved for people, not cars, during the first ever ‘Open Streets Main Road’. Closed to motorised vehicles, it will become an open space for pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders, wheelchair users and other non-motorised transport users to move in safety. Open Streets is free and everyone is encouraged to participate and help plan the day.
