The City of Cape Town plans to spend R11 million to close-off walkways at Table View and Atlantis MyCiTi stations with roofs and glass panels.
Mayco member Felicity Purchase said schools and residents approached the City to make the stations more “commuter friendly”, as the stations are among the busiest on the rapid-bus network.
Purchase said R6 million would be spent on the Atlantis upgrade and R5 million Table View station.
“The purpose of the projects is to make our public transport system more convenient and safer to use,” she said.
Work at the stations will start on Monday February 18, between 11pm and 5pm when buses are not operating.
The project is expected to take six months to complete.
“I’m asking commuters and residents to please be patient. Once completed, the roof and panels will make a huge difference to commuters’ travelling experience,” Ms Purchase said.
