Road closures for the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon

13 Sep 2016

The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon takes place this Sunday, 18 September.

The organisers have worked with the Traffic Department of the City of Cape Town to ensure the delicate balance between the safety and convenience of both participants and the general public. As a result, the areas surrounding the race route will be affected by road closures and traffic delays. To minimise disruptions, a team of traffic officers, marshals and security officers will be on active duty to manage the day’s proceedings.

City libraries open up another chapter during National Book Week

1 Sep 2016

The City of Cape Town’s 103 libraries and three mobile libraries are home to a stock of more than four million books. In a year borrowers take these books home 10 million times.

The value that libraries bring to communities will be in the spotlight during National Book Week, from 5 to 11 September 2016. International Literacy Day is also celebrated in this week, on Thursday 8 September.

In celebrating Women’s Month, the CCID spoke to female leaders in government, business and civic society in the Central City. We published some of their comments in the Winter 2016 issue of City Views. Here is a Q&A with Yolanda Faro, acting chief of Metro Police, City of Cape Town. Stay tuned throughout August to meet more wonder women of the Cape Town CBD.
