Kwanobuhle Sports Facilities Upgrade

The main objective of the project entails the upgrade of existing sports facilities and the development of an urban park in Kwanobuhle, South Africa. The project is envisaged to be phased in 3 parts and would ultimately conclude in a recreation area integrated within the urban framework. Some of the key ideas include: Improve the general sports and pedestrian areas as well as immediate urban precincts. Upgrade general infrastructure in the area, providing adequate sports as well as pedestrian facilities. Develop a single activity link/route offering connections to surrounding residential areas. Create integrated points of reference/nodes within the urban landscape offering visual linkages to pedestrians as well as activities along the route/link.
