New public transport facility for Vuyani <span><p>The new facility will be located on the corner of Spine Road and Jeff Masemola Road, adjacent to the existing Vuyani meat market in Khayelitsha.</p><p>'We propose to build a new minibus-taxi facility with a roof covering the loading lanes and waiting area so that commuters and operators have protection from the sun and rain, and lighting for improved safety after dark. There will be ablution facilities, an administration building, as well as universally accessible pedestrian facilities. The concept design is now available for comment and I urge commuters, operators, and all others who are interested in this project to please submit your views. This facility is for the Vuyani community, and the public participation process is an important opportunity to contribute and influence the final design,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:802px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p><strong>The City is inviting the public to an information day about the draft concept plan for this project. The details are as follows:</strong></p><ul><li>Tuesday, 11 October 2022</li><li>Blue Hall on the corner of Bekelentloko Street and Hlomela Street, behind the Philani nutrition centre, Town Two in Khayelitsha</li><li>From 14:00 to 19:00 </li></ul><p>The project includes embayments along Spine Road for GABS buses. </p><p>Once complete, the minibus-taxis will operate from this facility with trips to destinations such as Mfuleni, Eerste River, Blackheath, Kuils River, and Lwandle.</p><p>'I want to add that the new PTI in Vuyani fits into our planning as we are rolling out the next phase of the MyCiTi service to the metro-south east to connect Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha with Claremont and Wynberg. A MyCiTi stop is planned for at the intersection of Spine Road and Govan Mbeki Road. This is about 200m away from the new PTI and within walking distance. Thus, a few years from now commuters from Vuyani will have access to at least three different modes of public transport: minibus-taxis, the MyCiTi bus service, and GABS. </p><p>'One of our priorities for this term of office is to improve communities' access to safe, dignified, and affordable public transport services. We are working towards this goal one project at a time, and I am calling on Vuyani's residents to please attend the information day where officials will answer their questions,' said Councillor Quintas.</p><p><strong>How to comment:</strong></p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>Residents and interested parties are encouraged to submit comments by 26 October 2022</li><li>Submit comment online at <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li><li>Send an email to <a href="" target="_blank"></a> </li><li>Hand in your written comments at the local Subcouncil 10 office, Khayelitsha Training Centre on the corner of Lwandle Road and Phendula Crescent</li><li>Visit the information day on 11 October 2022</li></ul><p>The City will take all of the comments into account when finalising the detail design for the proposed facility.
