Station Deck re-opened

2019-03-05 06:01

One of Cape Town’s busiest transport facilities was re-opened on Monday 25 February after being closed to minibus-taxis while undergoing a much-needed refurbishment.

The Station Deck was closed for over five weeks and taxis have been operating from the Grand Parade during the construction period. This project was part of a three-year interval maintenance programme and is not an upgrade project, the last of which took place in April 2015.

The station deck facility was becoming a health and safety hazard and the purpose for the urgent repair and refurbishment was to ensure that facility is appropriately maintained. Some of the pavements have been lowered to allow the pedestrians to move around the deck with ease and road markings have also been made clearer.

Access control booms which will operate with a rank token have been installed.

This mechanism has been installed to assist with clamping down on illegal operators, thereby permitting only vehicles possessing valid operating licenses to enter the facility.
