Cosmo Mall Pedestrian Bridge: A new Johannesburg landmark
AT 410M LONG, THE NEW PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY AND BRIDGE OVER MALIBONGWE DRIVE IS STRATEGICALLY LOCATED AT THE ENTRANCE TO BUSTLING COSMO CITY
The new walkway will give Cosmo City residents and visitors safe and easy pedestrian access to the new 22,000m2 Cosmo Mall, and represents a major private-sector investment in public infrastructure by the Bentel Group.
Says Bentel Group executive chairman Aubrey Bentel: “An integral part of our brief to the professional team was to create a user-friendly bridge structure, with a gradual incline to make it suitable for wheelchair access. Its design was aimed at creating a landmark structure in the community that will inspire civic pride.”
This multimillion-rand investment comes in just less than 18 months after the opening of the R270m Cosmo Mall in September 2014. The mall houses more than 70 retail stores, eateries and service outlets. “These are major investments into Cosmo City in terms of quality retail and public infrastructure. Not only has this created jobs, it has brought an exciting shopping and leisure destination right to the community’s doorstep,” says Bentel.
