Daylin Mitchell 'honoured' to be appointed WC Mobility MEC
Daylin Mitchell was appointed the Western Cape’s MEC of Mobility by Premier Alan Winde. The portfolio was previously known as the Department Transport & Public Works.
Mitchell says he will prioritise, together with key partners, to ensure a safe, reliable and affordable public transport for our residents.
‘’This is essential if we are to deliver on the priorities of the Western Cape Government, namely, job creation, safety and dignity. This Department will include responsibilities such as financial support for transport services, our traffic operations, and transport regulation.’’
‘’I want to specifically focus on new, specific and innovative strategies that will improve mobility in the Western Cape, especially given the many challenges we experience with transport infrastructure. This cannot be done on our own, and we need to bring together the private sector, NGOs, local and national government and entities,’’ added Mitchell.
Team work makes the dream work, and Mitchell says he will engage with key stakeholders, including existing transport structures and entities, to unpack the vision and implementation of this department.
‘’I give our residents my word that I will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that we deliver on this important priority of the Western Cape Government, so that people can move around our province safely, and in a reliable, affordable way so that they can access opportunities and have dignity,’’ said Mitchell.
