Mitchells Plain Public Transport Interchange

Eskom Award 2006

The brief entailed the design of a new transport interchange for
Mitchell’s Plain Town Centre. The facilities include taxi and bus terminals, offices for the interchange management, ablution facilities, trading facilities and a pedestrian bridge across the railway line.

This is the second largest interchange in the western Cape with over a 1000 taxis operating from here on a daily basis. An Urban Design Plan and transport study formed the basis of this project. Part of the design criteria was also to deal with the harsh climate during winter and summer, and to make the interchange between the various modes of transport as seamless and safe and comfortable as possible. This project was completed in 2010 at a cost of R 20 million.
