The official launch of the newly developed Heidelberg Mall taxi rank and taxi offices facility took place on Friday the 22nd of November 2019. Heidelberg’s  Executive Mayor Lerato Maloka and Chairman of the Heidelberg and District Taxi Association Mr Yika were in attendance at the event and cut the ribbon to officially open the rank.

The five-month project has seen the transformation of the Entrance 5 parking area into a functional taxi rank with quality facilities for the Heidelberg and District Taxi Association and commuters. The new rank will serve as Heidelberg’s commuter hub and will provide commuters with improved access to Heidelberg Mall, and the hawker facility will provide an opportunity for local businesses and entrepreneurs to sell their products from established stands.  An Unjani Clinic will be opening  adjacent to the taxi rank in January 2020 and will provide quality, affordable healthcare to the community.
