MEDIA RELEASE FROM SANDTON CENTRAL MANAGEMENT DISTRICT (SCMD)

September 18, 2015

Sandton Central’s street-by-street guide to road access during the EcoMobility Festival.

Sandton – September 08, 2015 – Getting around the Sandton CBD during the World EcoMobility Festival, from 1 October to 31 October 2015, is going to be different from usual. Driven by the City of Johannesburg, the upcoming EcoMobility Festival is part of the city’s plan to decongest traffic and give preference to public transport, bicycles and pedestrians on our streets.
In line with leading world cities, the month-long festival will introduce new pedestrian zones, cycling lanes, bus lanes, public transport resources and some traffic restrictions in CBD.
Elaine Jack, City Improvement District Manager for Sandton Central Management District (SCMD), says that information will play an important role in communicating the changes that Sandton’s street users can expect, to help them to adapt to the changes and take part in this opportunity to find new, better, and more environmentally respectful ways of getting around Sandton, as part of this global event.

SCMD has facilitated communication between the City of Johannesburg and businesses in the Sandton CBD over the past nine months in preparation for the festival. Now, over the next month and during October, SCMD will provide simple, easy-to-understand information for people who work, visit and live in Sandton to help everyone get around the Sandton CBD during the festival. You can find this information on www.sandtoncentral.co.za, where anyone can subscribe for news alerts and updates, on Twitter @SandtonCentral and on the Sandton Central Facebook page.
