The City of Cape Town will start with the construction of MyCiTi bus depots for Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha later this month. The depots are part of the expansion of the MyCiTi bus service to the metro-south east. Residents are invited to attend information days about the project.
The City is hosting the information days as follows:
‘I encourage residents to attend the information sessions and ask officials questions. This is the ideal opportunity to find out about the temporary employment opportunities that form part of this project. The construction work will be visible by mid-August, and we expect the depots to be completed by mid-2025, if all goes as planned,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.
Interesting facts about the two new bus depots for commuters from the metro-south east:
‘Temporary employment and training opportunities to the value of at least R22 million will be available to local jobseekers. Also, the contract between the City and the construction company stipulates that local subcontractors should be contracted to supply goods and services to the value of R40,8 million. Thus, our local communities will have the opportunity to earn an income and benefit from subcontracting while this construction project is ongoing, and hopefully this injection will give them a foothold in the market,’ said Councillor Quintas.
