TRANSPORT: More MyCiTi Routes Start Soon
Recent Western Cape Business News
Contractors will soon start construction work on the R27 to extend the dedicated red bus lanes and non-motorised transport (NMT) lanes beyond Bayside Mall at the Blaauwberg Road intersection, to the Sandown Road East intersection at the West Coast Village shopping centre. The trunk route will also be expanded in the Race Course Road area.
The construction work forms part of the introduction of the MyCiTi Public Transport service, which will bring reliable, efficient public transport to residents of the West Coast, who will be the first beneficiaries of the service.
Work that will soon commence includes:
Part 1: Extending the dedicated red bus lanes (IRT trunk route) and NMT lanes on the R27. Work has started and should be completed by June 2012.
Part 2: Integrating the NMT aspects of the MyCiTi project with the road network. Work will start at the end of February and is scheduled for completion by December 2011.
Part 3: The final configuration of road works around the Paddocks and hospital area of Racecourse Road is still being finalized and will be communicated to the public. The Racecourse Road Trunk Route will be expanded and the NMT aspects of the project will be integrated with the road network in this area. Work on this specific stretch is scheduled to start in March 2011 and is scheduled to be completed in July 2012.
A meeting will soon be called to discuss traffic accommodation with all affected parties, as this project’s success is largely dependent on traffic accommodation.
