Comment on the proposed new MyCiTi bus holding facility for Wynberg <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p> The proposed new facility will accommodate buses between the morning and evening peak periods when <a href="" target="_blank">Phase 2A of MyCiTi<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> starts operating. </p><p> Phase 2A will connect Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain with Claremont and Wynberg with direct, quality, safe and affordable public transport. </p><p>We plan to have the proposed facility operational by December 2026. It will accommodate 145 MyCiTi buses with a maximum capacity of 200 buses. <br></p><h4> The new facility will consist of:<br></h4><ul><li>a fenced parking area for the buses </li><li>a security kiosk with a signalised entrance to the facility, off Wetton Road </li><li>a building to serve as a rest area for drivers during shift changes </li><li>toilets </li><li>a kitchenette </li><li>a small office component</li></ul><p>In addition, the plan makes provision for a small depot in 2052, to house a portion of the fleet overnight, with on-site washing, fuelling and maintenance facilities for 60 buses. </p><p>The site is located on City-owned land that has limited development potential due to the contamination caused from its previous use as a construction dumpsite. </p><p>The buildings will be located on a small portion of land identified as suitable for construction, and the remaining land will be fenced and surfaced for buses. </p><p>Construction will not interfere with access to the neighbouring Bonnytoun informal settlement, and careful shaping of the site will ensure that we avoid a small section of degraded wetland adjacent to the M5. </p><p> While the site is currently well screened from the M5, additional perimeter landscaping will also help limit the visual impact of the facility.</p><h4>The concept design also considers future planning needs, including: </h4><ul><li>an off-ramp from the M5 </li><li>broader plans to develop the Wynberg Sports Precinct</li></ul><p>Notice is hereby given in terms of Section 16(1)(a) of the Municipal Systems Act. </p><p>In terms of section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, you may submit comments, recommendations and other feedback relating to the proposed upgrade. </p><p>We will consider all comments before a final design recommendation is made to Council. </p><p><a href="" target="_blank">Access the Concept Design Plan</a>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Comment period</h2><p>Submit your comments and objections from <strong>7 November– 9 December 2022</strong>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Information day</h2><p>Join us at an information day to find out more and comment on the proposed new bus holding facility.</p><ul><li> <strong>Date:</strong> Thursday, 17 November 2022 </li><li> <strong>Time:</strong> 14:00 – 19:00 </li><li> <strong>Venue:</strong> Wittebome Civic Centre, Wynberg</li></ul><h2 class="sectHeading">Submit your comment<br></h2><p>Comments, inputs or recommendations may be submitted via the following channels: </p><p> <strong>Online</strong><br><a href="" target="_blank">Submit your comments online</a>. </p><p> <strong>Delivery</strong><br>Deliver your written comments by hand to: </p><p> <em>Subcouncil 20 Office </em> <br> <em>Alphen Centre </em> <br> <em>Constantia Main Road </em> <br> <em>Constantia </em></p><p> <strong>Quote the unique reference number MS003/2022.</strong> </p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> Our Public Participation Unit will assist you if you would like to submit comments but have a disability, or are unable to read or write.
