Passengers in the Dunoon and Milnerton areas can look forward to easier and more convenient access to MyCiTi services in the near future, thanks to the planned rebuild of Phoenix, Usasaza and Dunoon stations starting in 2024.
The rebuild of Phoenix station on Omuramba Road presents the opportunity to choose a new name that better resonates with residents living nearby. The community previously expressed unhappiness with the original Phoenix station name, given its closer proximity to the Joe Slovo area than to the Phoenix suburb nearby.
MyCiTi stops and stations are typically named after the road, nearest side street or major landmark. In this case, another MyCiTi station already bears the road name Omuramba while the closest side street is Freedom Way.
Discussions with local political leadership and the community confirmed “Freedom” as a suitable name choice. The public are now invited to support or object to this proposed name change from “Phoenix” station to “Freedom” station.
Construction is planned to commence in 2024. The rebuilt stations and all future MyCiTi stations will feature more robust building materials and improved security measures to better protect against damage and vandalism.
