The City of Cape Town has announced that minibus-taxi operators, who have been displaced from the Station Deck facility, will be moved to an alternative remote holding area next month.
The site is situated on the harbour side between DF Malan and Christiaan Barnard Streets and borders on FW de Klerk Boulevard.
Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, Felicity Purchase, said: “Work is underway to convert this site under the freeway bridge into a temporary holding facility to accommodate approximately 270 minibus-taxis. The work includes the flattening of the parking surface, dropping of kerbs to provide access and exit points, the installation of guardrails along FW de Klerk Boulevard, and the installation of road signs and temporary water and sanitation services.”
If everything goes according to plan, taxis move to the new site at 9:30am on Monday November 4.
