3 destroyed MyCiTi stations need to be rebuilt

The city has announced that 3 destroyed MyCiTi stations will be rebuilt. The Urban Mobility Directorate says the contract for reconstruction has started. The destroyed MyCiTi stations are in Dunoon, Joe Slovo and Phoenix.

Councilman Rob Quintas, member of the city’s Mayoral Committee for Urban Mobility, says the Phoenix MyCiti station will also be renamed, following a public participation process.

He says the renaming of the Phoenix Station to Freedom Station was approved last week at the June 12 Council meeting.

Quintas says: “These stations need to be rebuilt so that residents who rely on this reliable and safe public transport service can once again access the MyCiTi network, as close to home as possible.”

Community members were asked for their input and the majority of residents indicated they supported the name change.

He said that the contractor has established its site in the vicinity of the station locations and will soon start construction.

If everything goes according to plan, the projects should be completed in November 2025.

“It was of utmost importance to us that we restore MyCiTi services at the three destroyed stations, but with enhanced security and vandalism-proof measures,” Councilor Quintas concluded.

Quintas added that the Freedom Station, formerly Phoenix, is located on Omurumba Road, opposite the Joe Slovo suburb.
