Department of Transport
Strategic objective and key focus
  • Strategic objective
  • Maximisation of job creation and skills
    development using labour intensive methods for
    the provision and upkeep of the much needed road
    infrastructure
  • Key focus
  • Application of labour intensive methods to
  • Capital road works
  • Road maintenance
  • National replication of best practice
  • Gundo-Lashu through Vukuphile guidelines and
    roll-out
  • Zibambele through Zibambele guidelines and
    roll-out
  • Prioritisation of Access Roads development in
    accordance with RISFSA
  • Streamlining this approach within roads authority
    budgets and service delivery programmes

13
14

Department of Transport
Funding allocation over 2007 MTEF R3bn
  • Rollout started 1 April 2007
  • Co-ordination via Roads Coordinating Body and
    other EPWP structures
  • PIG new allocations reserved for Roads

14
15

Department of Transport
Past performance and planned outputs
  • Past performance
  • Collectively Provincial Road Departments spent
    R726.6 million on EPWP Projects and Programmes
  • Created 52 000 work opportunities in 2005-06
  • Are implementing the EPWP through programmatic
    structures such as Vukuphile, Zibambele, Gundo
    Lashu etc. which incorporate long term planning
    and capacity building approaches
  • Planned outputs over 2007 MTEF
  • Replication of labour intensive best practice for
    road construction and maintenance across the
    country
  • 108 000 job opportunities
  • 2 000 km of new roads
  • 32 000 km of roads maintained
  • Skills development through Learnership programmes
    and Departmental training programmes
  • Income generation for poor families

15
16

Department of Transport
Observations and key challenges
  • Observations
  • Labour-intensive road construction and
    maintenance programmes exist already and can
    relatively easily be scaled up or replicated
  • Scaling-up approach is applicable across all
    roads, particular focus placed on access roads
  • Oversight Critical this programme is part of
    ASGISA and seeks to intervene in the second
    economy
  • Key challenges
  • Some Provincial Treasuries reduced baseline
    allocations by same value as scaling up
    allocation
  • Some authorities allocating more money to higher
    order roads than access roads
  • State of readiness to implement

16
17

Department of Transport
Proposed actions
  • Authorities need to work through their provincial
    Excos to prevent provincial treasuries from
    reducing their baseline allocations as this
    defeats the purpose of the additional allocation
  • Authorities need to reprioritize and budget more
    on access roads for future allocations
  • DoT, DPW and National Treasury will review first
    quarter reports and ascertain whether provinces
    are delivering as agreed. Thereafter decisions
    will be made on intervention measures to be
    adopted where necessary

Department of Transport
Road traffic management and safety
  • Challenges
  • Government responses
  • Management and coordination
  • Institutional reforms and regulatory framework

18
19

Department of Transport
Challenges
  • Road traffic safety levels in South Africa are
    unsatisfactory and unacceptable
  • Non compliant society no respect for law
  • Alcohol abuse widespread
  • Inadequate enforcement concentration on speed
    not moving violations and alcohol.
  • Fine collection only 17
  • Urban speed limits too high for pedestrians
  • Inadequate punishment and follow up fines
  • Age of the national fleet.
  • Fraud and corruption in licenses and roadworthy
    certificates.

Department of Transport
Challenges
  • Overloading continues to be a major problem on
    roads
  • High ratio of overloading by operators (over 84)
  • S.A. National Roads Agency forced to get involved
    in overload control
  • Heavy vehicle operators are guilty of
  • Repeat overloading
  • Severe overloading

Department of Transport
Public transport strategy Vision

The public transport strategy informs all modal
interventions and investments
30
31

Department of Transport
Public transport strategy Vision
  • Vision Move from basic commuter operations to
    accelerated modal upgrading and ultimately
    towards Integrated Rapid Public Transport
    Networks (IRPTNs), to achieve, amongst others
  • Maximum accessibility and coverage
  • Upgraded modal fleet, facilities, stops and
    stations that are integrated
  • Extended hours of operation
  • Accessibility for users with special needs
  • Electronic fare integration
  • Expanded access to public transport in rural
    areas
  • Car competitive public transport
  • Cities and districts therefore need to refocus
    Integrated Transport Plans to include the phasing
    in of IRPTNs, consisting of
  • Priority Rail Corridors
  • Bus Rapid Transit
  • Feeder and distributions networks

31
32

Department of Transport
Public transport strategy Phases

These are JHB, Tshwane, C Town, N. Mandela,
eThekwini, Mbombela Buffalo
Other 5 cities still need to establish basic
network vision and concept. Will require
intensive support. These are Polokwane,
Rustenburg, Mangaung, Ekurhuleni and Msundizi.
32
33

Department of Transport
Public transport infrastructure and systems
  • Projects should
  • prioritise public transport,
  • satisfy both long term mobility (legacy) and
    event specific mobility requirements,
  • Incorporate continuity from planning to
    execution,
  • be executed in accordance with govt. procurement
    and related requirements
  • be based on local IDPs and ITPs, addressing
    community access and mobility needs, and
  • be practical and implementable ahead of 2010
  • Other
  • 2010 Transport Action Plan was developed
  • Monitoring and management contract for PTIS in
    place
  • Priority statements assessed by Dept of Transport
    and National Treasury to allocate funds

Taxi recapitalisation
  • The taxi recapitalisation gives effect to the
    modal upgrading thrust of the Public Transport
    Strategy
  • The target is to scrap 80 of the old taxi fleet
    by 2010
  • Currently more than 10 of the taxi fleet has
    been scrapped
  • As part of the National Road Based Passenger
    Plan, the taxi services will be integrated into
    subsidised public transport services

36
37

Department of Transport
Bus subsidies / road based public transport
  • Current levels of subsidy are insufficient to
    halt the declining levels of service
  • Current levels of subsidy are unable to meet the
    growth in demand
  • Bus operators will not recapitalise their fleets
    due to the continued uncertainty of government
    policy regarding the contract system
  • Passengers prefer to travel by bus but have to
    use minibus taxis because contracting authorities
    have not been able to respond to changing
    circumstances
  • In order to improve operational and financial
    efficiency a more focussed approach to
    determining service priorities will need to be
    developed
  • The method of contracting road based public
    transport services has to change to better
    reflect the complexities of the network by
    eliminating the costly duplication of services

37
38

Department of Transport
Bus subsidies / road based public transport

The National Passenger Road Plan aims to bring
all road based public transport into a single,
regulated public transport system
38
39

Department of Transport
Bus subsidies / road based public transport
  • Key thrusts of the Public Transport Strategy
  • Modal upgrading
  • Integrated Rapid Public Transport Networks
  • Action plan
  • Replace existing contracting system - phased
    implementation in cooperation with operators
  • Bring the minibus-taxi industry (and other
    road-based public transport provision) into
    formalised, integrated public transport
    arrangements
  • Formalise unscheduled services
  • Define operating areas
  • Develop public transport corridors with high
    density (I.e. HOV lanes)
  • Identify feeder and local public transport routes
  • Include interchange development
  • Establish scheduled services within corridors
    starting with pilot corridors in each of 12
    designated areas
  • Integrate road based systems across the country

39
40

Department of Transport
Bus subsidies / road based public transport

Operators that do not accept will continue on
month-to-month basis and their contracts will be
terminated as and when required
40
41

Department of Transport
Bus subsidies / road based public transport
  • Network Design
  • Vehicle size to match passenger volumes
  • Buses to operate on line haul services only
  • Infrastructure
  • Invest in infrastructure that gives priority to
    road based public transport
  • Benefits
  • Reduced travel times to support enhanced urban
    economic growth
  • Improved public transport accessibility within
    the CBDs
  • Increased attractiveness of metropolitan centres
    to foreign investors and visitors
  • Improved access to rail transport through
    regulated midi bus feeder services
  • Stabilisation of growth in private car use and
    mitigation of road congestion
