FIRST PHASE OF ROSEBANK PUBLIC TRANSPORT FACILITY NEARS COMPLETION

The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) on behalf of the City of Johannesburg’s Transport Department, has been implementing the upgrade of the Rosebank Public Transport Facility.

The first phase, now at practical completion, commenced in May 2022. The scope of works includes, but not limited to:

–           Upgrading of sidewalks

–           Stormwater upgrades around the facility

–           Intersection upgrade

The capacity of the transport facility has been outstripped in recent years by growing developments in the Rosebank node. To improve the transport facility so it can accommodate Rosebank’s rapidly growing commuter base, the project is being undertaken in two phases.

The second phase is ready for commencement pending the finalisation of building plan approvals. It entails upgrading the existing office building, construction of food stalls, upgrading of ablution facilities and extension of the facility’s loading bay canopy.

The matter to finalise building plan approvals has been escalated to the Transport Department and engagements with the Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) to resolve the matter are on-going.

The JDA will continue to engage various stakeholders, including taxi associations, Ward 117 stakeholders and Rosebank Management.

“Rosebank commuters have been looking forward to the upgraded, new facility, which will be a valuable resource for people of all ages,” JDA acting CEO Siyabonga Genu said.

“We understand that the building plan approval is a setback, but we want to assure the community that we are working hard to get the project back on track,” he said.
