Kombis return to Egodini Terminus after eight-year hiatus, marking a milestone in Bulawayo’s efforts to alleviate CBD congestion.
The first phase of the Egodini Mall project, including the terminus and 400 vending bays, is now complete. This achievement follows numerous delays in the project’s history. The modern vending stalls and taxi bays aim to restore order and cleanliness to the city.
Terracotta Trading Private Limited director, Thulani Moyo, highlights that Phase 1A accommodates 110 taxi bays and 400 informal traders, featuring model-designed stalls with storage, display facilities, and solar backup.
Project manager Peter Wefelmeier emphasizes the facility’s health and sanitation standards, with over 40 ablution facilities and access to water provided for vendors.
The Egodini Terminus primarily serves western suburbs like Cowdray Park, Nkulumane, and Entumbane, playing a crucial role in easing CBD congestion.
