Enter our competition
The NRPA has extended the deadline for the competition to design a bus and taxi shelter that fits in with the natural look and feel of Noordhoek. All entries must be in by Monday, 15 June 2020. The winning design will receive a R500 voucher to enjoy a fabulous meal at Café Roux.
“We are looking for a bus shelter designed to protect commuters from the rain and sun that is as eco-friendly as possible,” says NRPA Chairperson, Brad Bing. “The shelters should be a basic design that can be created from wood with a natural look that fits in with tranquillity of the Noordhoek community. It should be able to fit 15 to 20 people under it,” he says.
“We have had some interest in this competition and have decided to give people more time to get their entries in,” says Bing. “It’s a good lockdown project for anyone with an eye for natural design.”
The shelters would be situated at the bottom of Silvermine Road before Village Lane, at the Mountain and Beach Road junction, and at the Noordhoek Garden Emporium, where people are currently waiting for taxis.
The competition is open to anyone who’d like to enter.
To enter, please send your design to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 June 2020. Watch the NRPA communications for the winning design. The City of Cape Town will need to approve the design before the winner is finalised.
The design of eco-friendly, natural-looking bus shelters aligns with two of the NRPA’s 2030 Vision goals:
- Being #GoodNeighbours, under this goal we are committed to looking after those who visit us in the Valley for work or pleasure. We believe being good neighbours improves the quality of life for all of us and enhances our reputation as a special place in South Africa.
- #Treadinglightly: This goal helps us live in a way that treads lightly on the land so that we do minimal damage and have minimal negative impact on the larger ecosystem.
