Transport Month kicks off with new PTI in Makhaza<p>​</p><span><p>'October is Transport Month, and during this month we showcase our transport successes. This year's programme highlights transport infrastructure across Cape Town. I am excited that Makhaza was our first stop. This facility will give much needed relief to almost 1 000 commuters who, up until now, had to endure harsh weather conditions while waiting for a minibus-taxi to take them to their destinations. With the completion of this facility, the community can now look forward to a dignified and safe space for their commuting needs,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>The facility boasts:</p><ul><li>a building with ablutions, and refuse storage</li><li>a universally accessible facility with roofs and seating under cover </li><li>green initiatives like rainwater harvesting, solar panels and LED lights</li></ul><p>The PTI also includes landscaping elements, such as 18 trees. </p><p>'I am appealing to the Makhaza community to please take ownership of this facility, and to ensure that it is kept clean at all times and used for its intended purpose. A taxi facility is a hive of activity where numerous small businesses thrive and friendships are formed. You now have a landmark, a permanent structure where you can express yourselves. I believe the operators will start operating from this facility as soon as the last snags have been resolved, and I want to wish you all well,' said Councillor Quintas.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1197px;" /> </figure>​​</span>The Project Steering Committee's support assisted in ensuring the successful completion of this project.<span><p> </p><p>'Establishing good relationships and ongoing and consistent communication with those affected are critical elements of a successful project. Without the assistance and support of this committee, we would not have been able to complete this work. This is how we make progress possible. Together.</p><p>'Last but most definitely not least, I want to thank the construction implementation team for articulating our vision and completing the work on time,' said Councillor Quintas.</p><p>Help us protect this infrastructure. Makhaza isezandleni zenu ngoku. Makhaza, it is now in your hands.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:880px;" /> </figure><strong>​​End</strong></span><p><br></p>2022-10-02T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#7cc7a47a-7915-4274-a19e-e977c5a945e0;L0|#07cc7a47a-7915-4274-a19e-e977c5a945e0|traffic;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#6ab3318d-7a7e-4bf3-bd4b-12d096c2d88f;L0|#06ab3318d-7a7e-4bf3-bd4b-12d096c2d88f|Makhaza10
