Durban all set for bumper festive season
ETHEKWINI is all set for the influx of visitors expected this festive season. The City has pulled out all the stops to ensure that visitors have a memorable time. The Festive Season Management Committee has put in place a comprehensive plan aimed at ensuring that visitors are able to enjoy themselves in a safe and hassle-free environment.

PARK N’ RIDE SYSTEM
Traffic management plan will be enforced by Metro Police to ensure road safety and eliminate traffic congestions. Some of the roads will be closed. Private vehicles, taxis and buses will be able to park at the Old Drive Inn Site. A free shuttle service will be operational in intervals throughout the festive
season to ferry passengers between this site and the beachfront.

CHILD-MINDERS AND BEACH-BUDDIES
During peak days at the beach, children can easily get lost in the crowd. Parents must ensure that children wear identification wristbands containing contact details of the accompanying adult person. Wristbands are obtainable from beach-buddies and child-minders who are situated at various points
along the beach.

SEPARATED CHILDREN
26 child-minders have been employed and can be found at one of the following seven sites, Addington, South, Wedge, North, Bay Lawns, Battery and Laguna beaches. They are easily identified by their uniform. In an instance where a child is separated from their guardian, there are gazebos
clearly marked “SEPARATED CHILDREN”. These gazebos are operational from 8am to 6pm throughout the festive season.

BATHING RULES
Bathing times are from 6am to 6:30 pm in Central Beaches and North/South between 6am to 6pm.
This means that no bathers are allowed to swim when the lifeguards are off-duty.

POOL GUIDES
To ensure the safety and full enjoyment of all bathers, the Municipality has employed 50 additional
pool guides. They will be situated at various places across the municipal area.

LIFEGUARDS
To compliment the number of the already employed lifeguards, additional lifeguards have been employed on a two-shift system. The lifeguards are there to ensure that bathers swim within the designated areas and offer rescue to swimmers.

KEEP OUR CITY CLEAN
An additional 200 temporary litter-pickers have been employed. Officials from Durban Solid Waste will work 24-hours a day. Patrons are urged not to litter, but use the available bins provided to dispose of all their waste.
