Harare City Council will today and tomorrow temporarily shut down part of Mbare Musika Bus Terminus to allow for the upgrading of the station to ease congestion as well as restore order in the CBD.

In a statement yesterday, HCC corporate communications manager Michael Chideme said the move was aimed at making sure council maximises on revenue collection.

Chideme said Coventry Holding Bay has now been turned into a bus terminus to pick-up and drop-off passengers from Western suburbs.

Chideme said the programme code named "Operation Sunshine City" will witness three new bus terminuses being established.

The terminuses will be put in place opposite Rhodesville Police Station and at Coca-Cola Corner where ablution facilities were being put in place since yesterday.

The closure will also allow to fence menacing touts off the terminus.

The iconic terminus, built during the colonial era, is used by buses that ply long distances to various destinations around the country and acts as a national convergence point for travellors using public transport.
