This year, the Johannesburg Development Agency (JOA) continues with the implementation of Bus Rapid Transport(BRT) stations in Sandlan to boost all modes of transport and ease traffic flows.

The project involves the erection of the BRT Station building in the road median with two station modules like the one in Katherine Street, as well as at designated intervals along the BRT route that goes through the Wynberg, Balfour, Orange Grove, and Berea area – then back to the Johannesburg CBD.

The new stations will have dedicated BRT bus docking and bypass lanes in the road median on either side of the station and two outer mixed traffic lanes to maintain traffic around the station and pedestrian crossing to and from Sandton City. The project is also adding improvements to the infrastructure in Sand­ton Central. It adds new bridges, widens main roads, upgrades pavements and signage, improves street­lights and signals, and introduces cycling and walking facilities.
