Complete Street Design Manual Guideline

In October 2010, the City of Johannesburg presented a report to the Mayoral Committe outlining a proposed new approach to ward based safety with an emphasis on safer street. Guideline Manual

Designation of commuter shelters
The City of Joburg has a responsibility to establish and designate ranks, holding areas, stops, shelters and lay-bys for the provision of public transport.  The City will be rolling out new commuter shelters from October 2012 across the City.

Non-motorised transport
Non- Motorised Transport has been identified as a priority area at National, Provincial and Local Government levels and has the potential to become a feasible and sustainable transport mode in the City. The proposals outlined in the City's NMT framework document provide a planning framework for Non-Motorised Transport, provide a policy direction and highlight priority areas for the implementation of this network in the City.

Integrated Transport Plans
The Integrated Transport Plan (ITP) was a requirement of the Municipal Structures Act of 1998. It looks at all public transport services - minibus taxis, subsidised buses and rail - as well as private transport and freight transport.

Operating licence strategy, rationalisation plans and the public transport plans were also considered in its formulation.

Transforming Johannesburg's public transport into a world-class system has been an elusive goal. However, with the impetus of the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup™ and the development of viable alternatives, a new vision of effective and sustainable public transport is beginning to take shape.

The new plan looks at upgrading the Strategic Public Transport Network (SPTN) into a higher-quality public transport network using a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Known as Rea Vaya, the initiative is aimed at raising the performance and quality of the SPTN to a car-competitive level.

Transportation modelling
Working with the CSIR between July 2004 and June 2006, the transportation department drew up the Integration of the Development of Future Development Planning Scenarios. The aim was to investigate the development proposals in the City's Spatial Development Framework, and to look at the potential implications for the transport system.

Key to the plans are the cost of providing a viable public transport system; the capacity of the transport infrastructure; and the value of alternative development interventions. If necessary, some aspects of the Spatial Development Framework may be revised.

Scenarios were developed for the years 2010, 2020 and 2030, with the strongest focus on 2010.

Transportation safety

Road Traffic Accident Statictics

As its name implies, the Transport Safety Plan manages safety and security related to transport. Taking its cue from the Integrated Transport Plan, it seeks to improve service levels.

The plan also gives a sectoral input into the City Safety Strategy.

It is a two-phased project - the first phase entailed the formulation of the Transportation Safety Management Information System, a database that stores transport safety and security data, linked to the City's geoinformation systems.

Spatial analysis of safety and security for road and rail transport identified hazardous locations.

The main focus of the Transport Safety Plan is interventions based on the data found in the Transport Safety Management Information System. The safety plans and strategies were drawn up after thorough analysis of accidents patterns and causes.

Three key strategies came out of the data analysis:

  • Integration of information;
  • Hazardous location improvement programme; and
  • Road safety and security focus areas.

Travel demand management
The travel demand management programme looks at the increasing use of single occupant vehicles and the effect on congestion, energy and the environment.

Based on the programme, two travel demand management measures were identified for implementation:

  • Drive share or carpooling initiative - lift-club schemes; and
  • Variable working hours initiative - flexi-time, staggered working hours, compressed and expanded workweeks.

2010 initiatives
In May 2006 the City submitted priority statements to the national Department of Transport for consideration for funding from the "set aside" Public Transport Infrastructure Fund (PTIF).

To receive funding, projects to be undertaken for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ should primarily focus on public transport and should be legacy projects that will benefit citizens after the final whistle has blown.

In addition, a High-Level Transport Plan [PDF, 5Mb] was developed to:

  • Review the current transport network and propose improvements in the context of world cup transport demands;
  • Outline the likely world cup spectator and official transport requirements;
  • Review stadium and precinct developments; and
  • Highlight critical issues.

This plan is being used as a basis for the development of high level public transport operational plans in preparation for the world cup.

A number of projects have been undertaken by the transport department in preparation for 2010:

  • High level public transport operational plans for Nasrec;
  • High level public transport operational plans for Ellis Park;
  • High level public transport operational plans for six of the eight official training venues;
  • Ellis Park and Nasrec SPTN links; and • Park-and-ride facilities.
