I have been doing some work in the Cape Flats region of late, and thought in sharing the pictures (so far) with you, that there is a need for general discussion and pictures of our cities 'other side'.

Lets keep it a place where any developments and progress in these areas can be posted.

Cape Flats -


Grassy Park - want fish?


Philippi's Stock Road Station


Philippi's Stock Road transport interchange


I think this is more Philippi


Neater Philipi neighbourhoods.


Langa


Khayelitsha - Site B: This is a fantastic development by a women named Rose. She has housing for +- 1000 orphans, and I believe there is a creche and old age home across the street too.


Khayalitsha


Khayalitsha


Khayalitsha: Apparently there were no tared roads here until a few years ago.


Khayalitsha: A new station (can't remember the name or find it on the metrorail sites) on the new part of the Cape Flat line.


Khayalitsha: More of the new rail.


Khayalitsha: The neat looking Magistrates Court.


Khayalitsha: The fairly new Khayalitsha Mall - would guess about <40 shops, but the main ones are there.


Khayalitsha: The SuperSpar in the mall. Nicer and more modern than many I have been in to.


Ditto :)

Yes indeed ... we need a thread for the Townships. I look at the images and see so much potential for upgrading these areas. Thanks for the interesting thread.

Could an admin member please change the title to Cape Flats *Discussion & Galary*
It will allow for individual threads for townships which I think is missing from this forum atm.
Thanks.
Why keep the spelling mistake:nuts::nuts::nuts:

^^ I think it's best the way you named it as we can post photos for all townships.

Great thread. We mustn't forget that townships are a much a part of SA as any other form of settlement + we mustn't try to hide them. This is a reality in our country.

I know there is some great stuff happening in some townships in an attempt to improve them like the Alexandra Renewal Project and so on.

No, I think it should remain as Townships Discussion and Gallery, even though it was you that started this thread. For if everyone's going to open a thread for each townships, we will be lost.

Ive said it before and Ill say it again, why oh why are there never any trees in townships? Even new suburbs with formal road and sidewalks etc have no vegitation and trees. Its not like they need to be irrigated like here in Dubai so whats the excuse?
