Public Transport Terminal / A Re Yeng
The new inter-modal Transport interchange servicing train, bus, taxi and A Re Yeng Bus Rapid Transport formalises the decades-old facilities. New spaces now house all modes of transport and hawkers, providing safe, clean city-owned infrastructure in walking distance of Rainbow Junction. This new transport node sits alongside the M1 (Paul Kruger Street) adjacent the South precinct of Rainbow Junction opposite Wonderboom and Pretoria North train stations next the subway into Pretoria North and servicing the entire north-of-the-Magalies regions.
The A Re Yeng Phase 1A dedicated route now delivers passengers to the CBD in 12 minutes along dedicated fast-speed lanes, all the way to the main Pretoria CBD Gautrain Station with park and ride facilities at the transport node alongside Rainbow Junction.
The transport node is a prominent feature of the Rainbow Junction Development in the vicinity of the regional shopping centre and integrated with the rest of Rainbow Junction. Principles of Transit-Oriented Development are encapsulated in the overall Rainbow Junction planning processes and supported by the land use mix philosophies.
Semi-private River Park
Rainbow Junction is designed to integrate and incorporate the 35ha of managed open green space, including the 4km of river frontage, to create an environmentally beautiful and exciting public open landscape with strong relationships to the adjacent built environment. The Apies River runs through the Pretoria CBD prior to running through Rainbow Junction. The Apies River Storm Water and Rehabilitation project of the City of Tshwane has been designed to contain and control flood lines while optimising developable land.
Part of the construction of the storm water solutions will involve rehabilitation of the Apies River as well as landscape improvements according to the Landscape Master Plan. The Apies River will be upgraded and landscaped to allow visitors the experience of meandering along 4km of rehabilitated river and indigenous parkland.
The first phase of Rainbow Residential estates encompasses 850 modern and appealing apartments and duplexes set in park-like surroundings across 3 secure estates, with two of these new lifestyle addresses directly facing the river, enjoying shared green spaces along the rehabilitated Apies River parkland. All three estates are clustered around the school sites allowing for walking access to full life-cycle nursery-, junior- and senior schools also sharing the new parkland and indigenous landscapes. The residential estates are co-located with Crescent Corner, our family-centric convenience shopping centre and within comfortable reach of the on-site public transport terminal.
The full life-cycle pre-primary, junior and senior schools will create the transition between the commercial activities and the residential activities in the Northern precinct of Rainbow Junction. Responding to changing dynamics of attitudes toward education, Rainbow Junction will position a unique school solution, speaking to a fresh approach to age-old question of nurturing our children. The schools will be designed to create a safe environment for children, whilst maintaining interaction with surrounding neighbours. These schools will make use of the open space along the Apies River for sports and playing fields.
Our twin Sasol filling stations, anchored on both sides of the busy K8 and Lavender Road intersection have been in service to the commuter and residing populations since 2016. The offerings include high-quality facilities with 4 ATMs on each site (ABSA, Nedbank, FNB and Standard Bank), 24 hour convenience shops, take-away tasty meals, and a higher level of service in an established area invigorated by these new stations.
