Construction on a new MyCiTi station at the V&A Waterfront is underway this month.
Change, improvement and expansion have been consistent themes for both the MyCiTi bus system and the V&A Waterfront in 2013. This trend continues as preparation begins for the construction of a new MyCiTi bus station located at the V&A Waterfront. The work is expected to be completed by the end of the year, which will coincide with this section of Breakwater Boulevard once again being opened to vehicular traffic.
The development of the actual top structure of the MyCiTi station will start in February 2014, with an expected completion date of July 2014. The station, called Waterfront station, at the end of the route is situated on the main trunk route that connects with the Civic Centre station – the point from which passengers can catch connecting buses to other destinations on the ever-expanding MyCiTi network. There are other kerbside stops in the V&A Waterfront precinct, such as Breakwater and Waterfront Silo. These stops are located on area routes that also connect with the main hub at the Civic Centre station, but via different routes, allowing MyCiTi to better service the area.
“We are very excited to be able to partner with the V&A Waterfront in what we see as a mutually beneficial relationship – offering convenient, top-quality transport for their patrons, and a world-class tourist destination for our passengers,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron.
