Reusing Postal Tunnels
Cemetery 36 will stretch 2km through the center of Johannesburg CDB. For this, it will reuse the abandoned Postal Tunnels that connected Park station, Jeppe postal office and Ghandi Square. These tunnels, created in 1932 and abandoned in the 1950s, where redisovered in 2018 and the city of Johannesburg is looking to redevelop them as publicly accesible space. Cemetery 36 extends on these postal tunnels creating multiple new entraces underground as well as establishing smaller buildings at the extremes that will strengthen the connection to the surface and the city.
