The past decade has seen Cape Town grow at an unprecedented rate.
South Africans from across the country are flocking to the Western Cape to escape crime, poor service delivery, economic woes and more.
But how will the City of Cape Town cope with the rising migration and the high demand on basic services?

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke with the City's Garreth Bloor Mayco Member for Tourism, Events and Economic Development and Mayco member for Transport Brett Herron.
According to Bloor, the desirability of Cape Town stems from investment in world-class facilities.
He says that movement in the city will spread to other areas and corridors, such as Durbanville and Claremont, to relieve density pressure in the CBD.
Herron says that the City has preempted the rate of development in and around Cape Town.
The transport plan does respond to the future growth of the City. We do need to add capacity for some road plans and just need to access funding to do this.— Brett Herron, MayCo Member for Transport
