Welcome to Sandton Central
Some tips from the Sandton CPF to avoid becoming a victim of crime;
Keep your vehicle doors locked, windows closed and valuables out of sight whilst driving and especially at traffic lights and other intersections – this goes a long way in preventing Smash & Grabs and Car-Jacking.
When using your car remote, physically check your doors are locked before walking away, or the criminal’s remotes will override yours and you will become a victim of the ‘jamming device’. This applies at schools, shopping centers, garages, churches, gyms, etc.
Narrow streets make Alex (the historic township just 5kms from central Sandton) hard to navigate by car, and the township's main features are a bit too far apart to easily explore on foot. Jeff Malaudzi, the charming founder of Alexandra Bicycle Tours, meets visitors at the Marlboro Gautrain station and takes small groups for two- or four-hour cycling tours of Alex.
An additional Heritage Impact Assessment has been undertaken for the heritage structures affected by the Rea Vaya BRTroutes (BRT Phase 1C).
