The City of Cape Town announced plans to combat traffic congestion in Cape Town by investing in a R481 million traffic-relief construction project.
The municipality's draft budget for the 2018 2019 financial year was tabled at Council last week and is now available for public comment.
In an attempt to ease the chronic traffic situation in the Cape Town CBD and stem the adverse effects that increased journey times are having on business operations (and the human psyche), a carpooling pilot has been launched through Accelerate Cape Town (ACT). Together with a few of its corporate members based in the CBD, ACT has partnered with locally designed, built and maintained mobile app uGoMyWay, to remove excess cars from the roads by connecting drivers and passengers to each other to share their everyday journeys.
The City will spend approximately R171 million on this project which is intended to relieve congestion on the main traffic routes and at key intersections in the Kommetjie area.
The government will invest billions of rands in South Africa's transport infrastructure over the next three years in a bid to reduce road deaths and traffic congestion in the country, says Transport Minister Dipuo Peters.
