Two new parking sites at Century City
Precinct expands and revamps facilities to make way for new developments and meet increasing demand
CENTURY CITY’S popular e-parking system is undergoing a major revamp and expansion to meet increased demand and to make way for new developments.
The e - p a rk i ng s y s t e m, introduced at Century City 10 years ago, provides affordable public parking for those working in the precinct, and demand for additional parking has grown.
E-parking bays cost R360 a month each, excluding VAT.
Colin Green, a director at Rabie Property Group, said there were initially two sites – one near the Bosmansdam entrance to Century City, known as Century Way E-Parking, and the other on the corner of Ratanga Road and Century Boulevard, which was moved closer to Sable Road 18 months ago to make way for two new office blocks, and has been known as Ratanga E-Parking.
“Further new development will shortly take place on the Ratanga site, which has necessitated us closing the Ratanga E-Parking and relocating those currently using the facility to alternative e-parking sites.
“Last year we added a third e-parking site near the Curro Century City Private School and a further two new e-parking sites have now been constructed by Neill Zaaiman Civil Contractors and are in the process of being completed. They are the MyCiti E-Parking, next to the public transport interchange off Century Way, which will have 259 bays, and the Steel Bridge E- Parking built next to the Aurecon building off Century City Drive.
“With the existing two e- parking sites in Century Avenue and Socrates Way, we now have a total of four sites offering around 1 100 bays.”
Green said that as Century City became fully developed, it was envisaged the e-parking facilities would be replaced with parking garages.
Chris Blackshaw, chief executive of the Century City Proper t y Owners’ Association which operates the e-parking system, said the MyCiTi service would be extended to Century City on November 30 with the launch of the new Century City-Montague Gardens service.
“Once this happens, we will phase out the current Century City Shuttle service which to date has transported people between their place of work and the e-parking sites.
“The e-parking sites have been strategically chosen so… users will easily be able to walk from their place of work to their nearest facility.”
He said existing e-parking access cards would be reprogrammed and the new system would come into effect on Monday.
