Overview | Projects

The project included a much-needed upgrade of taxi ranks. The new taxi facility - allocated for commuters, taxi operators, ranking officials and taxi drivers - is situated on the northeast side of the precinct and is being managed by the Metropolitan Trading Company. The eight-island, formalised linear taxi rank accommodates 32 minibus taxis. The rank is defined by destinations and is allocated to three taxi associations: Medita, Faraday and Wata.

There are 80 open vendor sites on Main, McIntyre, John Page, Madison and Gus streets, incorporating food, barber and general trading stalls. The booths are designed to be easily manipulated for individual business needs.

An open space on the east side of the precinct is used for public meetings, social gatherings, concerts or any other public-related functions.

Storage space on the east side of the Jeppe Rail Station was leased by the Metropolitan Trading Company from Intersite Property Management to store 60 steel-cage hawker lockers provided by the Jeppe Station Precinct Development.

The corner of Commissioner Street and Madison Triangle, which falls into the overall development zone of the precinct, was also upgraded.
