The City of Cape Town’s Executive Mayor, Alderman Dan Plato, visited the Hanover Park Public Transport Interchange (PTI) earlier today to see the progress made with the installation of CCTV cameras and public Wi-Fi. This project forms part of a City-wide programme where CCTV cameras and Wi-Fi are being rolled out at various formal PTIs.

The City has invested four million rand in the installation of this infrastructure at the Hanover Park PTI in its efforts to improve the commuting experience for residents and to assist in creating a safer environment at the facility and the surrounding area.

‘I am pleased to see the progress the City’s Transport Shared Services team has managed to achieve over the last two weeks. If all goes according to plan commuters in Hanover Park will have access to Wi-Fi while on the premises of the PTI in July,’

‘The newly-installed CCTV infrastructure will surely assist in our efforts to provide a safer facility and area for all. These cameras will also assist to pick up number plates, once operational in July,’ said the City’s Executive Mayor, Alderman Dan Plato.

In total, the City has invested R60 million in the programme for the current financial year ending 30 June 2021. The proposed estimated budget for the roll-out these upgrades at other PTI’s across the City in the 2021/’22 financial year amounts to R38,5 million.
