Century City is preparing for a bumper 2012 festive season.

Chris Blackshaw, CEO of the Century City Property Owners’ Association, said that the Operational Management Forum, which co-ordinates and facilitates law enforcement, security, traffic and disaster management issues within the precinct was  working closely with Canal Walk, Ratanga Junction, City Traffic and the South African Police Services to prepare for the 2012 festive season.

Traffic management measures to be implemented include the adjustment of  timing settings of key traffic signals at the Sable Road bridge and the N1 entrance to Century City to accommodate the increased number of vehicles and different traffic patterns and this  will be closely monitored over the season.

He said the recently contracted City Traffic Officer who has been deployed to Century City would be assisting with traffic management in and around the precinct  while extra parking assistants will assist  traffic flow at Canal Walk.

The shopping centre is offering extended shopping hours over the season.  From Friday 7 December until Sunday  23 December, the centre will trade from 9am until 10pm and until 9pm on 24 December.

Per previous years, trading is optional on 25 December but selected stores will be open.

From December 26 Canal Walk’s normal trading hours of 9am to 9pm resume although stores will have the option of closing at 7pm on New Year’s Day.

To accommodate Canal Walk’s longer trading hours, the operating hours of the Century City Shuttle will be extended to 23h00 where necessary and Golden Arrow Bus Services  (GABS) and minibus taxi operators have been advised of the extended shopping hours.

Security is also being beefed up for the festive season and all Century City security service providers, including the two contracted Metropolitan Law Enforcement Officers, will be on heightened alert.
