1 min read

Could Sandton’s traffic woes be a thing of the past? Johannesburg mayor, Herman Mashaba, has announced a R674m Sandton public transport loop to improve traffic congestion and access to one of the city’s largest economic hubs.

“For over two years the City has been active in and around Sandton to improve sidewalks, build two new bridges over the M1 to improve connectivity between Alexandra and Sandton, paving the way for the introduction of Rea Vaya services as well as constructing a dedicated public transport loop around the Sandton CBD,” explains Mayor Mashaba.
A dedicated public transport lane will be operationalised in partnership with the Gautrain, PUTCO, Metrobus and Mini Bus Taxis to improve access for public transport, reduce travelling times and make it more convenient to travel.

Beginning September 18, the Sandton Public Transport Loop will begin operating along Rivonia Road, Fredman Drive and 5th Street, including stops and shelters with information for passengers as to which bus stops where.
