Nomzamo Public Transport Facility


Our Role

SMEC was engaged to provide design and construction management services on the project.

Project Overview

This project involved the design and construction of a new public transport facility, located in the Nomzamo township in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Residents of Nomzamo had to previously make do with an informal minibus-taxi rank with no services such as offices, toilets or weather protection.

The new facility was designed to accommodate mini-bus and taxi movements and took the comfort and safety of commuters into a consideration.

The fully integrated public transport facility incorporates both the community’s needs and environmental sustainability into its functionality and includes:

  • Safe pedestrian areas protected from the weather
  • Properly serviced trading kiosks
  • Taxi wash bays
  • A manager’s office, kitchen, meeting room, security office and toilet facilities; well outdoor seating
  • An ablution block for commuters.

A Photo Voltaic (PV) system was used to provide adequate electricity supply for 100% of the administration buildings and ablution block in periods of high-sun.
