The first phase of the construction of the safe and convenient GO GEORGE terminus at the horseshoe in Cradock Street is commencing this week, as soon as hoarding has been put in place, starting on Wednesday, 1 June 2016.
The safety of our passengers and all pedestrians in the area is of utmost importance to GO GEORGE. Please be extra alert and do not take any chances when crossing streets to board buses. With the best safety measures in place, it still remains a construction site with safety risks involved.
To move passengers and buses as far away as possible from the construction site, some bus stop changes around the island (horseshoe) had to be made. Bus stop signage will be moved accordingly before Wednesday, and posters indicating the temporary positions of the bus stops for Routes 1A, 1B, (both Pacaltsdorp routes), 60 (Rosedale and Syferfontein) and 56 (Denneoord) will be clearly visible for all to see.
Passengers are encouraged to board their buses before or after the Cradock Street stops where possible. It is not always necessary to go to the central terminus area, but could actually be more convenient to board the bus elsewhere on its route, with shorter waiting periods and quicker boarding time.
