A first for Durban! Open Streets Florida Road encourages the free movement of people experiencing the space in a new and exciting way - on Sunday March 26, 2023.

An interesting pilot project will take place in Florida Road on Sunday March 26 from 09h00 until 17h00 when part of the road will be closed off to vehicles for much of the day to encourage pedestrian use only, converting the street into an alfresco family friendly precinct.

The notion of “pedestrianisation” is being explored globally, with some great case studies in the Middle East, Australia, USA and Europe, of converting a street into pedestrian use only – either permanently, or for special occasions. Cafes and markets spill out onto the streets, with live music and safe, family friendly outdoor spaces.
