The high number of vagrants and amount of litter have prompted concerns over health and environmental risks.
The Bellville bus and taxi station is one of the main transport interchange sections and a business hub for the hundreds of informal traders.
Chairperson of Bellville South Neighbourhood Watch, Michael Graayenstein, said: “The filth in Bellville is a clear indication that the transport interchange section has been overdone by homelessness, vagrancy and social issues. The vagrants don’t have anywhere to dispose of their dirt. The result of the litter attracts all types of infestations and there an unbearable stench which everyone can smell when walking through the Bellville interchange.”
Countless numbers of vagrants are squatting around the station and in the nearby parking lot, where they have set up structures.
