Cape Town's transport system is under pressure and in need of expansion.

So say Mayco Member for Transport and Urban Development, Brett Herron who has given an update on the The Integrated Public Transport Network Implementation Plan which is due to be completed in 2032.

The plan, tabled in the City Council, is in line with the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa’s (Prasa) intention to build new train stations.

There's a lot of construction going on currently. We are putting out tenders to construct regularly as and when the detailed design matures.

Brett Herron, MAYCO for Transport

In the next two to three years we will finish the construction in the South and start operationalising it and we can look at moving to the next phase.

Herron says the implementation of these projects might take a bit longer because of funding constraints from the Department of Transport as well as from Treasury.
