View of Granger Bay Boulevard between the new Green Point Stadium and the V&A Waterfront

As preparations for the 2010 FIFA World Cup move into higher gear, construction of the new Granger Bay Boulevard (linking Green Point to the V&A Waterfront) and the new traffic circle adjacent to the Green Point Stadium are at an advanced stage.

The raised Green Point circle will allow on-foot access to the Stadium and Urban Park precincts underneath it, without walkers having to contend with heavy traffic The new road, Granger Bay Boulevard, runs from the circle and comes out on Mouille Point's Beach Road, between the historic Somerset Hospital and Fort Wynyard buildings.

See photo below
A new Integrated Rapid Transit (IRT) system bus station is also planned for the centre island between the new traffic circle and the Portswood Road intersection on Western Boulevard, to meet public transport requirements for the World Cup 2010 event.
