Google Street View cars are back in Joburg

We pointed out a while ago that Johannesburg is a city that’s changing faster than even Google can keep up, and wondered at the number of places that no longer bear any resemblance to their online presence in Google Street View. It appears that someone was listening – this fella was spotted driving around Sandton and on its way towards Alexandra today. Keep an eye out for updated images of your street coming soon, then.

Apologies for the shaky-cam shots, if you’ve seen the car around or have better ones, post them below.
