Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Sunday, 21 January 2018 is Overport.
Overport is a hilly residential area in Durban, South Africa. The name Overport is commonly used to refer to the suburbs of Overport, Sydenham, Sparks and parts of Essenwood, with the part of Sydenham west of Brickfield Road usually called Asherville rather than Overport.
The name Overport was coined by William Hartley, the eighth Mayor of Durban for an estate he developed in what had up to then been called West Hill. The estate was borderd by today's Julia, Springfield, Essenwood (now Stephen Dlamini), and Brickfield (now Felix Dlamini) Roads, although the modern term Overport is commonly used to describe a larger and slightly different area.
Overport borders the suburbs regarded as forming Berea.
Overport, particularly west of Ridge Road is largely an Indian and has numerous mosques and temples. It has numerous Halaal eating establishments, many along Sparks (now Moses Kotane) Road. The large The Atrium Berea shopping centre which was previously known as Overport City and Netcare Parklands Hospital are in Overport.
