V&A Waterfront: The Marina Swing Bridge is getting an upgrade! [update]

update (12 July 2019): Cape Town Executive Mayor Dan Plato has officially opened the new R20 million swing bridge at V&A Waterfront, which replaces the previous pedestrian walkway connecting the Pierhead Precinct with the Clock Tower Precinct. 

update (20 May 2019): The V&A Waterfront has announced that the Marina Swing Bridge (connecting you to the Clock Tower / Silo District) will be out of operation from 20 May 2019 to 17 June 2019, as a new one is getting installed!

update (05 March 2019): The Marina Swing Bridge will again be out of operation when the new bridge is getting installed (29 March - 17 April 2019). The completion date for construction is expected to be 30 April 2019.

The pedestrian Marina Swing Bridge, which connects the Clock Tower / Silo District with the rest of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, is getting an upgrade. The new bridge will be wider, allowing more people to safely pass through. However, it will mean that the bridge will be out of operation from 25 February 2019 to 01 March 2019.
To travel across the two areas, a MyCiTi bus shuttle service will operate between the Bascule Bridge (near the Cape Grace Hotel) and Silo Square. (near the Zeitz MOCAA). The shuttle is free and will run approximately every six minutes between 5:30 and 23:30pm.
