SALT RIVER: HOMES LEFT TO RUIN

History Hist ory ffalls alls into decay NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

A

strip of Salt River heritage buildings are falling into disrepair and are bringing down the prices of surrounding properties, say community members. A number of neighbouring historical townhouses on Swift Street, all owned by the same landlord, are slowly crumbling, leaving tenants fed-up. The walls are falling apart and covered in peeling paint. A tenant, who requested not to have her name published, says a number of the houses are falling into disrepair while the owner lives comfortably. “Some of the tenants have spent money fixing up the houses themselves because the landlord won’t carry out any repairs. But other tenants are pensioners and can’t af-

ford those kind of repairs. The houses from 34 to 40 look like c**p, while he lives in a liveable condition,” she says. However, another tenant – who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity – says although no repairs have been made, the rent is reasonable and he has a good relationship with the landlord. The shabby houses are also reportedly affecting the sale of neighbouring properties, an anonymous resident says. Salt River Ratepayers’ Association chairperson Warda Rahim says some residents are upset over the eyesores. “We are very fortunate to be one of the few areas which have heritage buildings. All these buildings need to be preserved and the owners need to take care of them. Owners should feel honoured to have a historical property. The community needs to put pressure on landlords to beautify their proper-

ties, as these buildings bring down the value of surrounding homes. If everyone put on some fresh paint it would increase the property values and beautify the neighbourhood,” she says. The buildings are older than 60 years and have heritage value, says Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning Mayoral Committee member Garreth Bloor. “The properties referred to are graded as 3B, meaning that they are older than 60 years, significant and contribute to the streetscape and character of the Heritage Protection Overlay Zone within which they are located. “The properties enjoy general protection, which means the legislation protects them, but they are not promulgated as specifically protected sites,” he explains. Owner Abdullah Gabie says he rents the houses at between R500 and R900 a month,

which leaves him with limited funds to renovate. He says he has replaced two roofs and has plans to replace a third, as well as paint, shortly. “If I’m going to fix up the front of the buildings as well, I’m going to have to put up the rent. Where else will you get a house for such a reasonable rent?” The City’s Problem Building Unit has not received any complaints about these buildings, confirms Safety and Security Executive Director Richard Bosman, but will be investigated. However, there is limited action that can be taken by council, Bloor says. “In the case of illegal work, the City is mandated to stop work, but in this case a lack of maintenance and restoration is the issue. The City can work with the owner to provide maintenance and restoration advice and solutions,” he says.

WALMER ESTATE: SQUATTERS BLAMED FOR MUGGINGS

Plot woes NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

C

onstitution Road is the scene for twisted irony. Street people repeatedly erect informal structures on the wide and open plot along the road, while enraged Walmer Estate homeowners blame them for crime in the area. Section 26 of the South African Constitution enshrines everybody’s right to housing. The structures are on the doorstep of Rahmaniyeh Primary, and the school has been left feeling the brunt of criminal activity. Rahmaniyeh Primary principal Adbullah Ranoot says the settlements pop up “from time to time”. “We haven’t had any incidents this year, but in the past there have been cases of muggings and we have had a number of break-ins and vagrants on the property,” he says. The school perimeter is only partially fenced, which makes it an easy target, Ranoot says. “It’s very costly to replace stolen pipes and fencing every time the school is hit. We’ve been waiting two or three years for the education department to provide fencing,” he says. Provincial education department spokesperson Bronagh Casey says Rahmaniyeh is not on the scheduled fencing list. “The department has also not received any requests from the school for emergency maintenance on the fence. The school must make a request to the department, following the relevant procedures. Given the safety concerns, the department will, however, make a request for Public Works to investigate,” she says. This response has Ranoot stumped. “The provincial minister of education Donald Grant was at the school on a site vis-

it and the department is aware a fence is needed. We were told last year that we are on the list. It’s frustrating, because we have donors who would like to invest in the school, but are not willing to do so unless the fence is erected,” he says. The City of Cape Town’s Displaced Peoples Unit has conducted operations in this area before to remove vagrants, but the street people often return once the officers leave, says Mayoral Committee member for Social Development and Early Childhood Development, Suzette Little. There is also a dedicated fieldworker in every area. “The unit, together with Social Development, conducts regular interventions to reintegrating the street people with their families. However, many of them refuse the assistance offered by the City,” she says. Walmer Estate Community Residents’ Forum chairperson Moosa Sydow says the area is often used as a shortcut by residents. He is aware of a number of cases of muggings, and claims criminals infiltrate the informal settlements to act as lookouts for their accomplices. “The land invasion is very close the greens area, which is used by the community for sport. I suspect there are a number of opportunists who monitor the homeowners walking past and then mug them. The longer the informal settlement stays there, the more of an anti-social problem it becomes for us”, says Sydow. Charles Mwerenga has been living in the open field next to Constitution Road for four months. “We have no other place to live and we chose this site because there are no buildings, so we won’t disturb any one. We aren’t involved in crime,” he says. The unit will continue to conduct operations, in conjunction with Law Enforcement patrols, Little says. V Phone the City’s call centre on 0800 872 201.

WOODSTOCK: COMMUNITY MAP DESIGNED AND INSTALLED

Clear as day I

n a bid to promote safety, tourism and economic development, a local NPO has created a free community map to assist commuters to the Woodstock station. The Partnering, Networking and Research organisation (Partner) unveiled a community map on Tuesday for the thousands of people using Woodstock station. Partner intends to demonstrate that maps can be put up affordably at any train station in the country, says spokesperson Janine Tilley, who regularly uses Woodstock station. “When arriving at the station it seems as if one is in the middle of nowhere,” she says. “It is difficult to work out where the main road is and how to find alternative forms of transport such as a commuter taxi, Golden Arrow or MyCiTi bus,” she says. “Sometimes the train from the city breaks down at Woodstock station at night

and because there is no signage it can be challenging for people who are unfamiliar with the area to find another way home.” Woodstock has experienced urban upgrading yet through this gentrification tourist attractions such as the Woodstock Exchange and the Old Biscuit Mill are not accessible for the average commuter, says Tilley. “With this new sign showing where places such as the Old Biscuit Mill are located, both tourists and locals can easily find their way,” she says. The map also lists the nearest police station, the St Anne’s Women and Children’s Shelter, as well as the nearest clinic, ATM and pharmacy. The map features a quick response (QR) code that allows those with smart phones to scan the code and generate a Google map on their phones. The sign is mounted high, is hard wearing and easily upgraded at a low cost. The map itself cost only R7800 to produce. Partner worked with the Woodstock Improvement District, Indigo Properties, the bicycle shop The Gear Change and Signarama on the project.

MYCITI ON THE MOVE Be aware, be safe Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and bus drivers all need to take great care at intersections around MyCiTi bus stops and stations.

N

ew public transport services introduce changes to patterns of road use and driver behaviour. This is particularly so for MyCiTi, with its dedicated bus lane and priority traffic signals. “The best way to prevent accidents at intersections is for motorists to be aware of how the signalling and the bus lanes work,” says Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town. “It is also extremely dangerous for pedestrians to walk along or across the bus lanes. When using MyCiTi stations, pedestrians should only use designated crossings and only start walking when the green man appears. “Everyone approaching an intersection, whether they are on foot, on a bike, in a car or a bus, should exercise caution – especially in wet weather or visibility is poor in the early morning and evenings.”

Safety tips for motorists

The traffic signalling around some MyCiTi stations and bus lanes is different to that used at other intersections, according to the City’s Traffic Management Centre. Drivers wanting to turn right across bus lanes may not move into the intersection until they see a green arrow. Even though the light is green for vehicles going straight or turning left, they must wait behind the line. If they move forward or turn they will be directly in the path of MyCiTi buses coming along the red lane. Motorists should not simply

follow the car ahead, which may be making a mistake. In areas where there are no bus lanes, MyCiTi buses use roadside stops and halt in the general traffic lanes. This ensures that buses are not delayed by pulling in and out of bus bays. Motorists are requested to be patient for the short time it takes for bus passengers to board or alight, and not to overtake.

Motorists wishing to turn right must wait for the green arrow before entering the intersection.

Safety tips for pedestrians

Pedestrians crossing at MyCiTi stations need to press the pedestrian button, wait for the green man to appear and then start walking. The green man flashes for five seconds and is followed by a flashing red man. If the red man is flashing, pedestrians should not step off the sidewalk as there will not be time to cross the road before the light turns green for buses. Motorists are reminded that pedestrians have right of way for as long as the red man is flashing. Walking in or across bus lanes, except at a pedestrian crossing, is dangerous. MyCiTi buses have exclusive use of the lane and travel at a consistent speed to adhere to schedules. Pedestrians may also be fined for walking in bus lanes.

Safety tips for cyclists

Cyclists are required to obey all road signs and traffic signals. They must stop and wait at intersections until traffic signals turn green. This includes waiting for the green arrow before turning right across a bus lane.

A motorist illegally crosses the bus lane, while the bus has right of way.

Start walking only when the green man appears.

MyCiTi responds to demand There are now increased frequencies on several routes due to public demand. This includes: 103

Oranjezicht - Gardens - Civic Centre between 06:30 and 08:30 and 16:00 and 18:00

106

Waterfront Silo - Civic Centre - Camps Bay (clockwise) and

107

Waterfront Silo - Civic Centre - Camps Bay (anti-clockwise) between 07:00 and 08:00 and 14:30 to 17:00.

108

Hout Bay - Hangberg - Sea Point - Civic Centre and

109

Hout Bay - Imizamo Yethu - Sea Point - Civic Centre. Two additional trips have been added to each of these routes in the morning and afternoon to address the needs of school learners.

Temporary changes to Airport service From 14 April 2014, for a trial period, smaller buses will be used on the Airport route to the V&A Waterfront via Civic Centre. These buses will not stop at Thibault Square, Stadium and Granger Bay. Airport service passengers wishing to make use of these stations must change to T01 at Civic Centre station.

Honouring Giants in Maitland

GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

While the evening was well attended and saw former players from many eras get together for the first time, there was also a big surprise. “Kenny Roman, the club’s star pitcher in the 1970s, was flown in from Australia to attend the event and surprised birthday boy Danny Page when he walked in with a huge Maitland Giants birthday cake,” Miles says. “This was very special for so many of the members because Kenny was one of the stars of our teams. He shared some of the highlights of his playing days with the gathering.” Miles is serious the goals of PS4L in his home suburb. “We want to revive sport in the community as a means to deal with the social issues plaguing it – rampant drug abuse, gang violence and crime. “PS4L intends to provide a safe environment where children and adults can play sport and have fun and at the same time, learn essential skills such being disciplined, team work and respect for others. “Other sports clubs which have benefited from PS4L sponsorship this year includes Norway Parks Football Club, Athlone A’s Baseball Club and Kenfac Phillies Softball Club.” V For more information on PS4L visit www.playsport4life.org

A

n era when sport played a big part in the community was remembered when Maitland Giants Baseball Club recently hosted a reunion. Former star players spoke about the game with fond memories of the enjoyment it brought to them and, most importantly, the positive impact it had on them as juniors taking the lessons of discipline into their adult lives. While many of those players may have left Maitland and spread across the peninsula, it was obvious that the Giants retained a special place in their hearts. This event was the brainchild of Miles October, a former player who rose through their ranks from junior level, and wants to give back to his community through a new organisation Play Sport4Life (PS4L). “The organisation is a new development venture based in the Kensington, Factreton and Maitland areas that wants to revive sport in the area,” he says. “We organised this event to highlight how important sport was in the community and to honour some of the club’s former greats who were inducted into the Hall of Fame. It’s important that we show our appreciation for the role these guys played.”

DOWN MEMORY LANE: The stars of yesteryear from Maitland Giants who were inducted into the Hall of Fame. At the back, from left, are George Fester, Greg Josias, Ron Jacobs, Danny April and Maurice Roman. Seated, from left, are Danny Page, Kenny Roman, George Willenberg, Dennis Millar, Trevor Oldale, and Les Willenberg. PHOTOS: GARY VAN DYK

The City of Cape Town’s Economic Development Department has received a ward allocation from Ward 57 to provide unemployed community members with the opportunity to receive telemarketing and call centre training. The course, which will be free to the attendees, will run continuously for four weeks, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays. Selected candidates need to make themselves available for the entire duration of the course. Please note that space is limited to community members who are currently living in Ward 57 (i.e. Woodstock, Walmer Estate, University Estate, Mowbray, Observatory, Salt River, Zonnebloem, Vredehoek and Gardens). Application forms are available at the Woodstock library, corner Clyde and Aberdeen Roads, Woodstock.

The race aims to unite thousands of people under the night sky in one exciting and unique event. Organisers say participants can expect a fun night as they experience the “neon lifestyle”, whether on foot, skates or wheels. The event will take place at the Cape Town Stadium forecourt from 15:00 until 23:00 on Saturday 10 May. Single tickets cost R220, while group entries of four people or more cost R180. Children’s tickets cost R90. All entrants will get glow sticks; other accessories will be on sale. For tickets or more information visit www.neonrun.co.za. Follow the action on Twitter at @NeonRunSA and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/NeonRunSA. V Five People’s Post readers can each win double tickets to the Neon Run. Visit www.peoplespost.co.za to enter. Winners will be notified telephonically.

South Africa’s most unique road race is set to hit the streets of Cape Town with a burst of colour on Saturday 10 May. The Neon Run will see participants run, cycle, skate or walk the 5km night route covered in neon accessories and body paint, only to be greeted by a neon party at the finish line. Event manager Tavis Brown expects the inaugural event to be loads of fun. “After months of planning the Neon Run, we are so excited to be launching this unique event in SA,” he says. “We have had an amazing response and look forward to the electric event.” Participants will travel through several different “glow zones” that will show the full effect of their paint and accessories during the course. The party to follow will feature some of SA’s top artists, including Chris Taylor, Dean Fuel, ShortStraw, The Kiffness and 5FM’s Roger Goode.
