MyCiTi to test new system on traffic signals

MyCiTi will test a new system of bus traffic signals at four intersections on Blaauwberg Road in Table View from 10 May 2022. Road users are urged to continue to follow the general traffic signals that apply to them, and to approach the intersections with caution while the trial is underway.

The new bus traffic signals are aligned with international best practice and are being tested in consultation with the National Department of Transport. If successful, these signals will be implemented across the MyCiTi system and included in the South African Road Traffic Signs Manual for use by other cities and transport systems in South Africa.

These signals will be installed at the following intersections in Table View:
• Blaauwberg Road and Table View MyCiTi Station (R27)
• Blaauwberg Road and Raatz Drive
• Blaauwberg Road and Grey Avenue
• Blaauwberg Road and Janssens Avenue

Road users are urged to continue to follow the general traffic signals that apply to them, and to approach the intersections with caution while the trial is underway.

What you need to know
• Don’t stress! The new bus signals apply to MyCiTi only.
• Whether you are a motorist, pedestrian or other road user, you must continue to follow the rules of the road and the traffic signals that apply to you.
• Approach all intersections with caution and at a reduced speed.
