Waiting at Gandhi Square (2012)  Originally known as Van der Bijl Square, this central bus terminus lies adjacent to Johannesburg’s Eloff Street, situated close to Carlton Centre.  This square was renamed in honour of Indian patriarch Mahatma Gandhi, a civil rights activist.  In the late 1990s property developer Gerald Olitzki was granted permission to revamp the terminus as part of Johannesburg’s inner-city renewal project, which aims to restore the CBD into the city’s business hub.
