It will be located opposite Meriting Complex, on land that belongs to Botswana Railways (BR)."The plans are still in the pipeline, especially since BR is yet to finalise them.

Phillime said initially the concept was supposed to start in Francistown instead of Gaborone. "The delay was due to the fact that Francistown City Council (FCC) wanted to build a market there to cater for the informal sector, but the plans were put on hold when the market was placed opposite our Fire Department building," she said.
