Integrated Rapid Transit (IRT) 


Urban Landscape Solutions extensively landscaped Cape Town's MyCITI bus corridors - from Milnerton to Tableview and from Culemborg to Paardeneiland - with masses of indigenous plants that provide a vibrant kaleidoscope throughout the year.  Fourteen large palms that were in the way of the electricity supply, were excavated and replanted at intersections.

Irrigation is necessary due to the hard climate and sandy soil, but an innovative system now sees recycled water from Potsdam sewage works being used for this.  The plants create a soothing carpet of colour for bus commuters and cyclists - a definite enticement for people to leave their cars at home, and rather travel via the 'flower routes'.

Work completed includes:

  • Landscaping
  • Irrigation
  • Maintenance
