Whether the establishment of the Single Transport Economic Regulator will be reintroduced into the department’s strategic and annual performance plans; if not, why not; if so, (a) by what date and (b) what are the further relevant details?


Yes, the Single Transport Economic Regulator project will be part of the 2017/18 and onwards of the Department’s Strategic and Annual Performance Plans. The Department plans to present a Bill (draft legislation framework) to Cabinet to solicit gazetting approval for 60 days public consultation by end of financial year of 2016/17. Thereafter, inputs from the public will be consolidated and a revised Bill will be taken back to Cabinet for approval during 2017/18 financial year. The next step will be to table the Bill in Parliament by end of 2017/18 financial year. Upon promulgation of the Bill to a legislation, the Transport Economic Regulator establishment will commence.
