The National Public Works Department has approved a R100 million budget for a Muizenburg police station.
The current building will be excavated to make it larger.
Questions have been raised about the project and why there are fewer efforts being made to building stations more accessible to poorer communities with higher crime rates.
According to a report by the Cape Argus, Muizenberg crime statistics are far less compared to areas like Khayelitsha and Nyanga.
Councillor Jerry Gordon, whose ward includes the Vrygond area, also raised concerns, saying the current station is already inaccessible to residents who have to travel more than 4km to reach the building.
Ward 64 councillor, Aimee Kuhl, says they have struggled to get details on the Muizenberg project.
She says while the station needs an upgrade, it does not justify the amount of money allocated to the upgrades.
Both my colleagues had discussions with National Public Works and with Saps around this and it's actually reached a point where I felt that I had to go to the media because we are just not being heard.— Aimee Kuhl,Ward 64 councillor
Its R100 million which is supposed to be spent on one police station within a cluster which has police stations that all need upgrades.— Aimee Kuhl,Ward 64 councillor
