Queen’s Beach steps to be closed for 5 days

Bollards and railings along the promenade are being maintained.

The Coastal Management Branch of the City of Cape Town will close the Queen’s Beach steps from Monday August 22 to Saturday August 27 to replace bollards and railings near the ablution facilities in Sea Point.

Beachgoers will, however, be able to use another staircase that provides access to the beach and ablution facilities.

The installation is part of the Coastal Management’s planned annual maintenance, where specific bollards and railings between the Sea Point Swimming Pools and Bantry Bay were designated for replacement.

“The Sea Point Promenade is one of the most popular recreational amenities in the city and it is important to ensure that it is well maintained and safe for all the users,” said deputy mayor and mayoral committee member for spatial planning and environment, Eddie Andrews.

“The repairs are intended to enhance the experience of those using the promenade and ensure the safety of all users. We will do our best to accommodate pedestrians and other promenade users during this time and try to complete the work as soon as possible.”
