De Freitas, Mr MS to ask the Minister of Transport

With reference to the reply to question 3817 on 28 November 2017, (a) why are height restrictions of 4,3 m going to be re-introduced, (b) what economic impact analysis has been undertaken in relation to the country’s immediate neighbours, including the countries of the Southern African Development Community, internationally once the specified restrictions have been re-introduced and (c) what are the results of the analysis?

Reply:

(a) There is no re-introduction of the vehicle and load height restriction as provided for in terms of regulation 224 of the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2000 under the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 (Act No.93 of 1996) (“the Act”). The height restriction has always been part of the Act. The special dispensation that was granted exempting the operation of motor vehicles transporting ISO Containers from complying with the provisions of regulation 224(b) is lapsing with effect from 1 January 2019. This special dispensation was granted to allow the industry to procure and/or source complaint trailers to transport high cube containers come 01 January 2019. The intention was not to exempt the industry indefinitely.

(b) There is no obligation on my Department to conduct an economic impact analysis because there is no intention to amend Regulation 224 of the National Road Traffic Act. It would go against the established legislative drafting conventions for my Department to conduct an economic impact analysis or research whilst the legislation is in effect. Simply put, research informs legislative drafting not the other way around.

(c) Refer to (b) above.

Reply:

  1. Yes, there is land claim on part of the airport. Half of the runway is on the claimed land, but the other portion has not yet experienced any claim.
  2. Discussions and negotiation have commenced between the Department of Public Works and Road and Community Safety and Transport Management and the Claimant.

Vos, Mr J to ask the Minister of Transport

(1)What progress has been made regarding the ratification with other African countries of the Yamoussoukro Decision regarding the Open Skies for Africa policy; (2) what is the Government’s position on the specified decision; (3) in what manner have the delays in implementing the decision affected the air services market in South Africa, with regard to packaging the Southern African Development Community region amongst international arrivals?

Reply:

1. Yamoussoukro Decision is not a treaty to be ratified but an African Civil Aviation Policy for the integration and the establishment of a Single African Air Transport Market to enhance African Intra-Trade and Tourism. In terms of Section 35 of the International Air Services Act 60 of 1993, the Minister may, exercise the delegated authority by the State President to enter into any air transport services agreement with the government or other appropriate authority of another State or Territory regarding the control over and regulation of any class or type of International air services operated or to be operated between the Republic and that State or Territory. In the absence of a continental multilateral institutions to fully regularise air transport, South Africa has concluded thirty-eight (38) Bilateral Air Services Agreements (BASA’s) with willing and able states in line with the principle of Yamoussoukro Decision (YD) awaiting the institutionalisation of a multilateral framework to fully regulate the continental civil aviation. South Africa has further integrated the principles of YD in the National Civil Aviation Policy that has since been approved by Cabinet on the 15th of February 2017.

2. Government is in full support of the integration and establishment of the Single African Air market. South Africa has to date signed the Declaration for Solemn Commitment to the implementation of YD towards the establishment of Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM). The former President, His Excellency Mr. Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, witnessed the launch of SAATM during the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the Union, in January 2018.

3. Implementation of YD has been slow and limited. The delay has caused South African and rest of the continent to miss out on substantial economic benefits. Some air transport markets between Africa and countries outside of Africa have been liberalized to a significant extent. But most intra-African aviation markets remain closed and regulated through bilateral agreements which limit the growth and development of air services.

Air services arrangements with the South African Development Community (SADC) have been restricted, limiting airline participation in the market. However, of recent, some SADC states are slowly embracing the principles of YD and are progressively liberalizing key elements of the Bilateral Air Services Agreements. Restrictions on designation of airlines on specific routes and limited capacity still exist in air services arrangements with Namibia, Angola, Mauritius, Tanzania, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Reluctance of these states to embrace YD has negatively affected South African airlines desiring to either introduce new services or expanding existing markets. The Government, however, continues to engage these States bilaterally and multilaterally to encourage them to be part of the African Union initiative of creating a single air transport market for Africa.

(a) What rail safety plans are in place in each province, (b) how are the specified plans executed, (c) at what stage is the execution in each province, (d) what monitoring mechanisms are in place in each province, (e) what are the allocated budgets for each province for the current financial year, (f) what budgets were allocated for each province in the past three financial years and (g) what was actual expenditure in each province in the past three financial years?

Reply:

As mandated by the National Railway Safety Regulator Act, No 16 0f 2002, each operator is responsible and accountable for ensuring the safety of railway operations, while the Railway Safety Regulator (RSR) is accountable for providing adequate and appropriate oversight of the safety of railway operations.

a) Railway Operators submit annual Safety Management System Reports (SMSR) to the RSR and at the core of the SMSR is the Annual Safety Improvement Plan. The Annual Safety Improvement Plan contains the operator’s annual railway operational improvement plans that demonstrate how the operator has resourced themselves to mitigate the risks that they identify in their railway operations. The SANS 3000 standards guide the operators on the content of the plans.

Operators throughout the nine provinces have Safety Management Systems as mandated by the SANS 3000 series of standards. The Annual Safety Improvement Plan contains the Operator Risk Assessment, the Controls to reduce or mitigate the risks and the Targets aimed at reducing the incidents. The Action Plans are also found in the Annual Safety Improvement Plan of the operators.

b) The plan would, among measures, indicate how the operator plans to reduce level crossing incidents, people struck by train incidents (PSBT), collisions, derailments, theft and vandalism incidents, etc.

To mitigate the risks identified in each rail operator’s Risk Registers, the operators approve and execute COPEX and CAPEX Projects. For example, the Platform Projects by PRASA are aimed at mitigating the Platform Train Interface (PTI) incidents, the Walling Project at reducing the PSBT incidents, Re-signalling Projects at reducing collisions, etc.

c) Most of the key projects are at construction stages while some are at commissioning stages. The RSR conducts reviews on these projects through all project life cycle phases to ensure that the new works do not introduce new risks to the railway system and where these cannot be eliminated, that necessary mitigation measures are implemented.

d) The SANS 3000-1 standard specifies that incidents must be reported to the RSR. It states which incidents must be reported within 15 minutes, daily, etc. All reported incidents find their way into the Annual State of Safety Report. The RSR conducts Audits and Inspections on the operators to oversee their compliance towards their safety management systems and plans.

Litigant seeking to review decisions taken by representation officers in terms of section 18 of the AARTO Act.

Edwards Matter

The Applicant in this matter requests the court to order the Agency and Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality (joined as the second respondent in the matter) to issue him with his driving licence and licence disk in respect of various vehicles under the circumstances where the Applicant has been served with an enforcement order.

Howard Dambovsky v Department of Transport and others

Mr Dembovsky has lodged this application to, amongst others; contest the constitutionality of some of the provisions in the AARTO Act as well as its Regulations. He alleges that those identified provisions of the Act contravene in the main, the right to a fair trial as enshrined in the Constitution. This application also seeks to request cancellation of all infringement notices in an instance where infringers have elected to be tried in court but have still not been served with summonses for a period over 18 months, as prescribed by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Profile picture: Ollis, Mr IM

Ollis, Mr IM to ask the Minister of Transport

(1)Whether (a) his department, (b) the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa or (c) Metrorail had any meetings with the City of Tshwane and/or the Member of the Mayoral Committee for Transport in the City of Tshwane to discuss connecting future Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) systems in the City with existing Metrorail lines that are currently not in use, with a view to create a transport network connecting various modes of transport; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the meeting; (2) have any similar meetings been undertaken since the completion of the Gautrain in order to facilitate a one-ticket system for the Gautrain, Metrorail and the various BRT systems in the province; if not, why not?

Reply:

1. (a,b,c) Both the City of Tshwane (which receives Public Transport Network Grant funding from the DoT for its BRT/Integrated Public Transport Network) as well as Prasa, have at least since 2012 been reminded on several occasions to fully cooperate on planning for both road and rail based services that ultimately link up to form an Integrated Public Transport Network.

Key operational as well as mothballed rail lines (e.g. Hammanskraal) and services have been identified in the Tshwane IPTN plan since 2013 as well as in various Prasa strategies.

The City furthermore designed the currently incomplete A re Yeng Phase 1 service to link up with Prasa’s Kopanong Station in Shoshanguve, Wonderboom Station in Pretoria North, Pretoria Station in the CBD, stations in Sunnyside, Hatfield and finally Denneboom Station in Mamelodi. In addition, A re Yeng links with the Hatfield and Pretoria Gautrain stations.

The key challenge with regard to actually implementing an IPTN in Tshwane that includes both road and rail services, lies not in the planning or intent but rather in the slow implementation of getting viable services and infrastructure ready to operate. In this regard both the City as well as Prasa are well behind the envisaged timelines set in 2013.

The DoT, supported by National Treasury, is currently engaging with the City, amongst others, and Prasa to ensure that financially prudent and viable services are fasttracked that will lead to a tangible integrated network in Tshwane.

2. Over the past few years, the Gauteng Department of Transport and MEC have coordinated the various cities and Prasa to explore the possibility of having a single fare media for at least the subsidised services in Gauteng. The 2011 DoT regulations on Automated Fare Collection provides a platform (using bank industry payment media that is interoperable) for this.

Currently the three Gauteng metros have implemented a compliant smartcard system that can be made interoperable. Gautrain as well is in the final pilot testing stage of implementing the same interoperable fare media. Prasa are still exploring the business case for investing in automated fare collection and held a market engagement in 2017 to explore options.

Once again, the key challenge to ensuring interoperable fare media in Gauteng is not the technology, but rather the actual slow rollout of IPTN services together with the attendant automated fare collection systems. The intent and leadership exists, the key task at hand is to scale up and speed up the rollout of IPTN lines across the 3 metros and to speed up the Prasa modernisation programme.

Gauteng Province, supported by the Gautrain Management Agency, has done significant preparatory work on a common fare system. The challenge now is to roll out more upgraded services and to integrate their business models in order for a single fare system to follow.

Khanyile, Ms AT to ask the Minister of Transport

On what date will the new signalling equipment currently being installed in the so-called big three provinces of KwaZulu-Natal, Western Cape and Gauteng be completed and fully operational in each case?

Reply:

Gauteng

The overall Gauteng signaling work is currently at 67,14% completed. The Gauteng Nerve Centre (GNC) is completed and operational. To date 31 of 88 stations have already been commissioned with the new signaling system and are ready to migrate to the GNC.

8 Centralized Traffic Control centers (CTC’s) across Gauteng will be migrated to the GNC and the first migration commenced with 3 CTC’s which is now fully operational. The project is expected to be completed by 2021.

KwaZulu Natal

The overall signaling work in KwaZulu Natal is at 66,34% completed. To date 4 of the 33 stations have already been commissioned with the new signaling system and is currently controlled from the existing Durban CTC. The project is expected to be completed by February 2020.

Western Cape

The overall progress in the Western Cape is at 72,45% completed. To date 10 of the 53 stations have already been commissioned with the new signalling system. The project is expected to be completed by June 2020.

Profile picture: Hunsinger, Mr CH

Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) What is the total number of trains that were hired out (i) in the (aa) past three financial years and (bb) since 1 April 2018, (b) to whom were the trains hired out, (c) over what period were the trains hired out, (d) for what purpose were they hired out, (e) what amount was charged in each case, (f) what profit was made in each case and (g) what number of trains is allocated for the purpose of hiring out?

Reply:

(a) PRASA does not hire out commuter trains out. Metrorail provides for special trains based on its assessment of opportunities, its responsibilities in terms of public transport/mobility provision for special events or on request by authorities/stakeholders; on condition that trains do not interfere with scheduled trains and PRASA covers costs and/or retain revenues from ticket sales.

For Main Line Passenger Services (MLPS), PRASA makes provision for chartered trains on a request and quotation basis, and where such trains do not interfere with scheduled trains.

(1)Whether (a) his department, (b) the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) and/or (c) Metrorail had any discussions with the KwaZulu-Natal Member of the Executive Council responsible for transport or the eThekwini Member of the Mayoral Committee for Transport on the possibility of extending the northern rail lines in Durban to the King Shaka International Airport with the intention of running a new train service from King Shaka via Durban North to the downtown areas of the eThekwini Metropolitan City; if not, are any meetings planned in future; if so, (i) on what date did each meeting occur and (ii) which spheres of Government were in attendance; (2) (a) have any engineering or feasibility studies been completed on the possibility of constructing an extension to the rail service, (b) what is the direct line distance in kilometres and metres between the closest rail line of either Prasa, Metrorail or Transnet to the King Shaka International Airport and (c) what is the average cost per kilometre of constructing new rail lines in the country in terms of the 2018 prices; (3) does his department, Prasa or Metrorail plan to implement such a rail line in future; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. (a) The Department of Transport has not entered into such discussions ;

(b) PRASA have met with the KwaZulu-Natal Member of the Executive Council responsible for Transport and the Portfolio Committee on Transport Oversight to provide an update on programmes and initiatives at PRASA. One of the areas covered during these meetings was PRASA’s future rail planning, including the conceptual planning study for the Northern Rail Linkages (inclusive of King Shaka International Airport).

 (i) The dates on which meetings occured were as follows :

KZN MEC for Transport - August 2016

Portfolio Committee – October 2016 and February 2017

(ii) Provincial government

2. (a) A conceptual planning study has been undertaken on potential future rail linkages serving the northern areas, including King Shaka International Airport.

(b) The north coast line, owned by Transnet, is the closest rail line with Tongaat and Nyaninga stations nearest to King Shaka International Airport. In terms of approximate straight line distance between King Shaka International Airport and these stations, the distance is 3km and 5km for Nyaninga and Tongaat stations respectively.

(c) Prices vary in terms of the terrain and engineering solution required. Tunneling and viaduct will be more expensive than at-grade construction. The approximate average cost per kilometre for new line is between R100m – R300m.

3. The conceptual planning study as alluded to above, identified future rail linkages to the northern areas that may be viable in the medium – longer term. It is therefore included as part of PRASA’s longer term rail network expansion plans. Furthermore, the KZN Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs has advertised a tender for the appointment of a service provider to determine the optimal public transport solution link for the King Shaka International Airport. The DoT and PRASA will assume a leadership role should rail be found the optimal solution.

(1)Whether, with regard to the passenger rail service provided by the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa between Buffalo City/East London, Butterworth and Umtata, it is envisaged that the rail line will be upgraded to provide a regional passenger rail service that would operate on improved timetables, instead of the current slow and unreliable service on the specified route; if not, why not; if so, on what date(s) will such improvements be implemented; (2) whether it is envisaged that a proper rail service will be implemented on this whole route instead of using buses for certain sections of the route; if not, why not; (3) will the Government provide budgetary funds towards the upgrading of the specified rail line, as the service is entirely devoted to serving the rural poor?

Reply:

1. A rail service between East London and Mthatha, known as the Kei Rail service, was provided in the past. The service has been stopped as it was unsustainable. The patronage was very low for a rail service and the travel time exceedingly long due to the terrain and rail geometry. The journey by rail was approximately 12 hours as compared to 3 hours by road.

Subsequently, in 2013 The Eastern Cape Department of Transport further investigated the feasibility of the Kei Rail service and confirmed that in its current state it was not economically viable as a stand alone passenger service. Other road based public transport modes were found to be more economically viable. The railway line is currently owned by Transnet and the provision of a passenger rail service for socio-economic reasons was always considered a possibility on the basis of having a sustainable freight service to offset the costs. Unfortunately, sustainbale freight operations on this corridor has not yet materialised.

There are no plans at this point in time to reintroduce the service.

2. See above

3. Current studies undertaken suggest little justification for investment at this point in time.

Is there a future plan to implement an upgraded express train connecting Carletonville, Krugersdorp, Randfontein and Central Johannesburg; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) currently provides a rail service from Randfontein to Park (Central Johannesburg) Station. An express service, Randfontein Metroplus Express, departs Randfontein at 06h00 in the morning. The Express Service has unfortunately not been operating on a regular basis due to the limited availability of trains. PRASA has however identified the opportunity in the medium term to run faster services from Randfontein to reduce the travelling time to Park Station. This entails running an outer-service from Randfontein to Krugersdorp with limited stops thereafter an inner-service from Krugersdorp stopping at all stations. This will become possible once the train fleet allocation for Gauteng has stabilised and increased.

There are currently no short term plans to extend the service to Carletonville based on the current demand requirements and fleet availability. PRASA is however involved in the update and development of the Integrated Transport Plans and transport demand model for the West Rand and will update its plans accordingly should future transport demand warrant a rail service.

(a) On what date will the construction on the new rail extension for Metrorail linking Motherwell and Coega with the Nelson Mandela Metro CBD commence, (b) what is the anticipated date of completion for the extension and (c) on what date is the service anticipated to begin running?

Reply:

a) The detail design and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) phase is currently underway and it is anticipated that it will be completed by June 2019. The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality will be updating their transport demand model and Integrated Transport Plan for the City. A final decision on preliminary timeframes for construction will be taken once this phase is completed.

Should it be decided to proceed, PRASA will be able to issue the tender for construction in the latter half of 2020 once land acquisition matters have been finalised. Construction could therefore possibly commence during the latter half 2021.

b) A two-year construction programme is envisaged. Based on above timeframe, the construction can be completed towards the end of 2023.

c) Operations could commence early in 2024 once testing and commissioning has been completed.

Fig2 : Financial Support to Provinces

b) Refer to the Fig 1 and 2 above.

c) The PRMG accounts for roughly half of provincial road maintenance expenditure, with the funds mostly used for routine and periodic maintenance needs. Hence, very limited resources are available to rehabilitate the provincial paved road network unless the PRMG is significantly grown over the medium to long term or provinces allocate a much larger portion of own funds to road maintenance – ideally a combination of both measures.

The magnitude of maintenance backlogs due to lack of funding is such that it is unlikely to be addressed through national transfers and subsidies, especially given the National Treasury’s commitment to fiscal consolidation, which in the continued absence of notable economic growth must be predominantly realised through higher allocations from the provincial treasuries and/or from savings and efficiencies in respective provincial departmental expenditure.

Where the emphasis in the earlier years was more on the existence of infrastructure, at present the emphasis is on network availability and redundancy predominantly. This requires a different asset management approach. Therefore, Road Authorities need to revisit their maintenance strategies by looking at the relationship between infrastructure and mobility, so that the range of optional interventions can be broadened, to extend the lifetime of road assets.

With reference to the statistics generated during the Easter period in 2018, (a) what road campaigns took place (i) leading up to, (ii) during and (iii) after the specified period, (b) what were the objectives of each campaign in each province, (c) were the objectives met, (d) how was this measured, (e) where did each campaign take place, (f) to whom were the campaigns targeted and (g) what amount was spent on each campaign in each province?

Reply:

a) (i)      The following campaigns were undertaken leading up to Easter :

Driver workshops – road safety education workshop was conducted among drivers of major bus companies that were scheduled to transport people to different places of pilgrimageThe emphasis of the workshop was on fatigue management, pre-trip inspections, safe vehicles, impaired driving as well as reckless driving. Drivers were exposed to public transport accident scene that took place during the 2017 Easter Period. The Department of Health and the Road Accident Fund provided information on issues related to health fitness and wellbeing.

 

Road Awareness at institutions - road safety awareness activities were undertaken at churches, Taxi Ranks, Schools, places of entertainment, as well as filling stations along the major routes.  The purpose of the awareness activities was to increase knowledge and skills among travellers in relation to vehicle safety, overloading of passengers and goods, as well as substance abuse. Road safety officials were deployed at various transport public hubs which were known to be congested during Easter period as a result of travellers to raise awareness about safety on the roads.

Pedestrian Awareness - heightened pedestrian awareness activities were undertaken in areas, which are identified as hazardous locations. The focuses of the pedestrian activity were primarily on visibility, the safe crossing of roads, impaired walking as well as jay-walking.

 Youth road safety - Young people are largest group involved in reckless and negligent driving due to their attitudes towards safe road usage.  Road safety education campaigns were undertaken leading up to Easter at institutions of higher learning and the focus was on impaired walking and driving, dangerous walking and pedestrian visibility.

  

The activities were supported by a strong media campaign that included interviews and social media activations.

 (ii)     The following campaigns were undertaken during the Easter period:

  • Intensified law enforcement operations by national, provincial and local traffic authorities took place during the Easter period focussing inter alia on speed management, drunken driving, reckless and negligent driving, overloading, vehicle roadworthiness and cross-border operations.
  • Road safety education activities were staged on all routes that were identified.
  • Radio and television interviews were conducted on local, regional and national stations throughout the period to sustain the messages on safe Easter travel. Social media interactions were also intensified to reach young travellers.

(iii)   The following campaigns were undertaken after the Easter period:

Media interactions continued after the Easter period on all the platforms including TV and road interviews and social media platforms. The campaigns continued over the Worker’s day (May 1)  long weekend.

(b)     The objectives of the campaigns were to reduce fatalities on the identified hazardous routes and improve road user behaviour.

(c)       There was a reduction in crashes on identified hazardous routes however new hazardous routes emerged in other areas. The number of passenger fatalities were reduced although pedestrian fatalities increased suggesting that more work is still required.

(d)    This was measured by analyzing crashes and fatalities and comparing the outcome to the similar period in the previous years.

(e)    The campaigns took place at churches, institutions of higher learning, taxi ranks, halfway station along major routes, premises of major bus operators, on the roads in the form of roadblocks and on various media platforms.

(f)     The campaigns were targeted at drivers of public transport vehicles, passengers, pedestrians, the youth and faith-based organisations.

(g)   The campaigns were undertaken with approved operational budgets of provincial departments and municipalities.

1. The provisions of the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 or the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act, 1998, do not give any local government the authority for external service providers to forward fines and notices on their behalf.

(3) The National Road Traffic Act, 1996 provides for the appointment of a proxy that must deal with the affairs of the motor vehicle owner particularly in a case where the owner is not a natural person.

(4) There is no need for an action against service providers since there seem to be no transgression of the National Road Traffic Act, 1996.

Profile picture: Hunsinger, Mr CH

Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) What steps have been taken to fill vacancies at all levels and grades within his department and the entities reporting to him, (b) why have the vacancies not been filled to date, (c) who performs the necessary functions in instances where there are vacancies and (d) what has he found to be the cost implications (i) during the vacancy period and (ii) once a vacancy has been filled?

Reply:

Department

a) The department has so far identified critical posts that are funded and to date sixty-nine posts have been advertised and are in different stages of being filled

b) The department experience budget cuts on compensation of employees during 2015/16 Financial year and this had an impact on the filling of posts since not all vacant posts could not be filled with the current budget

(c) The functions of vacancies are being executed by other employees on the same salary grading and in some instances of a person appointed to act in a higher post. The acting appointments are based on the Department’s operational requirements, to ensure continuity in service delivery and efficient and effective functioning. An acting appointment is only applicable when service delivery will be hampered.

(d)(i) The total cost implication of vacancies in the Department since the implementation of the new structure, i.e. from 1 April 2012 to date amounts to R361 051 457.08.

(ii) R9 760 335.72.

Airports Company South Africa SOC Limited (ACSA)

The Airports Company South Africa approaches resourcing within the context of its approved Manpower budget. Where employee terminations are relevant, and a vacancy occurs, the company proceeds in recruiting for such positions within the shortest possible time thereby ensuring efficient continuation of operations.

In instances where a position is vacant, whilst recruiting for such position, it may be required to appoint an employee to act in such position. The acting of the employee in another position is regulated by a Board approved Acting Policy which includes the payment of an Acting Allowance, which is aligned with market practice.

(b) Positions are in the various stages of recruitment, ranging from advertising, shortlisting, interview stage, offers extended to successful candidates and candidates serving their notice periods with current employers.

(c) For critical positions an acting employee is appointed in the interim. The acting employee must perform all the duties of the higher position. The acting appointment must be in writing and communicated. Payment of Acting Allowances will be motivated by the Line Executive, and approved by the Executive Human Capital, for all acting appointments below executive level. Acting for executive positions must be approved by the Chief Executive Officer.

Non-critical positions are absorbed by current employees.

(d) Recruitment costs where applicable.

(i) ATNS pays retrospective ex-gratia payment to employees acting in the higher positions for a period of two (2) months and more. Employees acting on higher position will be paid 15% of own current Cost to Company as ex-gratia payment. Employees acting on higher position with another employee acting in that employees’ position, will be paid 5% of own current Cost to Company as ex-gratia payment. However, the acting allowance are offset against the salary for the vacant position.

(ii) Cost as per the Peromnes grade and the ATNS remuneration Policy.

South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA)

a) All vacant positions as per the approved organisational structure of the South African Civil Aviation (SACAA) have been advertised on multiple platforms. Trainee positions have also been created to build capacity and fast track the filling of positions. As existing positions become vacant they are advertised immediately.

b) The SACAA had undergone a restructuring exercise about two years ago and as a result additional positions were created. The filling of the new positions is staggered over a period of three (3) years, i.e. 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 financial years. In the current financial year, i.e. 2018/19, all positions as per the new structure need to be filled. Vacancies often occur as a result of the newly created positions being filled by existing staff who have applied for the new positions and this then opens up new vacancies. As soon as these vacancies occur they get advertised immediately. In addition, occasionally there would be a shortage of certain scarce and critical skills, which results in those positions taking longer to fill.

c) The vacancies have not resulted in performance issues or gaps as the work gets planned based on the staff complement approved for the particular financial year. In instances where there is a specific need for additional staffing, fixed temporary employees are appointed to deal with the additional work load in order to fulfil the specified projects.

d) (i)during the vacancy period

All vacant posts are budgeted for. In some instances, staff is appointed to act in critical positions and in terms of the SACAA remuneration policy an acting allowance is paid to these employees that act in higher positions. The costs relating to vacancies in the 2017/2018 financial year are:

  1. Acting allowances paid to employees acting in higher positions R 720 766.00
  2. Recruitment and placement fees; and R1 530 837.00

(ii) once a vacancy has been filled?

There is no additional cost implications because all positions are budgeted for.

Cross-Border Road Transport Agency (CBRTA)

a) The Cross-Border Road Transport Agency (CBRTA) not all vacant positions would be filled in any financial year except those that are budgeted for and are identified as critical positions.

b) Due to budget limitations and financial constraints, only identified critical positions are given preference.

c) Operations continue with the current employees in positions. Only in instances where it has been proven that the function will require at least someone to act will an employee be appointed to act in the vacant position.

d) The implications of vacant positions in the organisation has financial impact in instances where acting arrangements exist. (ii) Once a vacancy is filled, there are no extra costs outside the remuneration and rewards cost.

Road Accident Fund (RAF)

a) The Road Accident Fund (RAF) utilises various methods to fill vacancies at all levels and grades which includes, inter alia, Linked-In, the RAF website, recruitment agencies appointed through the RAF’s supply chain management processes and the use of head hunters from the RAF’s panel of service providers in the event where the above-mentioned resourcing methods prove to be unsuccessful,

b) the reasons for the vacancies not being filled includes; interviews not yielding positive results for senior positions, resulting in the positions having to be re-advertised; job applicants have to work a notice periods at their current employer; and instances where the successful candidate declines the employment offer and the second best candidate is not suitable, resulting in the position having to be re-advertised,

c) suitably qualified employees are appointed to act in vacant positions, to perform the necessary functions. The RAF’s Resourcing Policy provides that the relevant Executive is responsible for appointing employees to act in vacant positions up to TASK grade 20 and the CEO, for vacant positions above TASK grade 20; and

d) the cost implications (i) during the vacancy period includes an acting allowance of 15% of the basic salary paid in respect of the acting employee’s substantive position, provided that the entitlement to the acting allowance arises only from the third month of the acting period and (ii) there are no costs incurred once the vacancy has been filled, save for the cost of employment related to the successful incumbent.

Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC)

a) Strides have been made to reduce vacancies in the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) in line with the available funds. As one of our measures and KPI’s the vacancy rate is kept at 10% which is a universally acceptable standard to ensure capacity within an institution.

b) The filling of vacancies is determined on the basis of available funds and strategic objectives of the Corporation.

c) Employees are appointed to act in positions which have been identified as critical, to ensure that mthe work that would have been performed by those employees continues.

Where the positions are vacant but not critical, employees within the units are alternatively utilised through job enrichment and or enlargement to perform such functions as part of employee career development.

d) (i) During the vacancy period, there were two employees who were appointed to act in key positions namely, Acting Company and Secretary and Regional Manager Mpumalanga. The cost of the acting assignment is R246 549.97.

(ii) The financial implications for filling of vacant and funded positions during the 2017/18 is R3 252 329.40.

AARTO

a) The steps taken to fill the vacancies were first to finalise the organisational structure, in line with what would be required for the national rollout and the new requirements as a result of the AARTO Amendment Bill provisions. After the organisational structure was approved, it was followed by the subsequent grading of all post levels, prior to embarking on the recruitment process to fill those positions, which were scheduled to be filled during the 2018/19 period;

b) The Agency was working on the new organisational structure to support the RTIA strategy;

c) The existing staff members; and

d) None. (i) None and (ii) None.

Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA)

  2. The Agency was working on the new organisational structure to support the RTIA strategy;
  3. The existing staff members; and
  4. None. (i) None and (ii) None.

South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL)

a) South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) Corporate Services cluster advertises open roles on a continuous basis to fill any vacancies, as and when they become vacant in line with our policies.

b) Recruitment delays can occur from time to time if right skills, that are in line with our Employment Equity Plan, are not readily available from the market. This may necessitate SANRAL to re-advertise and thus delay the finalisation of the recruitment process.

c) In the interim acting or temporary arrangements are made until positions are filled.

d) (i) -There are no quantifiable costs as SANRAL does not pay acting allowances.

(ii) Other than the cost of recruitment, there is no other costs associated with vacancies.

Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA):

a) PRASA has a moratorium on appointments except for core and critical skills as well as vacancies that have transpired because of natural attrition. The vacancies that are not affected by the moratorium are duly advertised and filled, however, there are vacancies at an executive level that are yet to be filled.

b) The number of Board changes have affected the finalization and filling of the executive positions.

c) The Human Capital Management function performs vacancy management, and other employees are employed in an acting capacity to fill the vacant positions.

d) (i) The cost implications for critical vacancies are either the acting or responsibility allowances paid to individuals taking care of the role whilst there is a vacancy.

(ii) The agency or advertisement costs are the costs incurred in filling the vacancies and the salary of the successful candidates is the cost incurred once the vacancies are filled.

Railway Safety Regulator (RSR):

a) All vacant positions are advertised on the RSR’s website and national newspapers simultaneously in order to ensure that the entire South African population is reached.

b) Some positions are not currently filled as per the approved Organizational Structure due to the RSR’s turn-around plan that was approved at the beginning of the financial year.

c) Filling of vacant positions is the responsibility of the line manager in consultation with the HR and Finance departments. Responsibilities are spread across the employees in that department or section to ensure continuity of service delivery.

d) (i) There are no cost implications because no one is paid acting allowances in those vacant positions.

(ii) Once the vacancy has been filled, the applicable remuneration is paid to the incumbent. This would have been budgeted for.

South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA)

The SAMSA Board made a recommendation to the Shareholder Minister on the CEO appointment, appointment is the Shareholder’s prerogative. The Board appointed the Acting CEO for twelve months and the incumbent could not act in the role for over twelve months. Decisions are made by EXCO, supported by the COO in the absence of the CEO.

Ports Regulator Of South Africa (PRSA)

a) The Ports Regulator cannot fill all vacancies as it is limited by the transfers received from parliamentary appropriations and the DOT budget, and in terms of the National Ports Act, it is not currently allowed to generate funds from other charges or levies. The DOT is currently working on an Amendment to the National Ports Act in order to facilitate a self-funding model for the Ports Regulator, to allow it to better capacitate itself.

b) In the absence of a self-funding mandate in the Act, the filling of remaining unfunded vacancies on the organogram requires a revision to the baseline allocation from appropriation. The vacant positions have been unfilled as the baseline has not been revised upwards at a reasonable rate, and the entity can not appoint employees using its small reserves as this option is not sustainable going forward. Non-recurrent or lump sum funds cannot be used for recurrent expenditure such as the filling of posts.

c) The current workforce works much harder to perform tasks that would have been performed by people in vacant positions. Also, the Ports Regulator has hired interns on a one year contract basis using non-recurrent funds. Thus far the Regulator has (with difficulty) managed the situation such that the vacant positions have not reduced the overall performance of the entity in that for the past four years, the entity has always achieved 85% to 100% of the KPI’s on the annual performance plan, as well as a clean audit over the past three years.

d) The cost implications has been communicated during the MTEF budget process to indicate the employee cost funding gap, unfortunately the gap has not been filled thus no appointments made. Currently it is estimated that approximately R10 million per annum revision to baseline is required to fill the organogram with respect to salaries and other employee related costs.

Chief Albert Luthuli Local Municipality

Local Government

The partnership commenced in December 2017

The nature of the partnership is on road safety education, information sharing and law enforcement. The partnership is centered on the Border Towns Initiative that aims to assist towns/municipalities near the borders to take advantage of economic spin-off of cross-border movement of passengers and goods. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) covers road safety education, information sharing, cross-border ranking facilities and law enforcement. Road safety education mainly focuses on scholars who are prone to harsh road safety risks as they cross the N17 to and from school daily and often collide with transit traffic in the area. The area also experiences varying weather conditions, which further contribute to poor visibility. The objective is to increase awareness in the area.

The partnership costs to the C-BRTA are covered from the Agency’s operational budget to implement agreed upon initiatives covered in the partnership.

There are quarterly engagements with the Chief Albert Luthuli Local Municipality to track progress on the implementation plan of the MoU.

Power FM Radio station (MSG Group)

Once-off road safety dialogue hosted on the 25th May 2017

The dialogue was broadcasted live. The panel comprised of the Minister of Transport, CEO of RTIA, CEO of RTMC, Advocate Johan Jonck (Founder of Arrive Alive) a SANRAL Road Safety Engineer, and the programme was hosted by the Power FM DJ. In line with SANRAL’s Communications strategy and as part of the ongoing efforts to address road safety, the previous Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi, in partnership with SANRAL and Power FM participated in a road safety dialogue. This was to create awareness around road safety and road-user behaviour. This dialogue took place shortly after the horrific crash near Bronkhorstspruit where several pupils lost their lives. Through this initiative the department and SANRAL contributed to creating a much wider awareness about road safety and sought to appeal to the thousands of South Africans to heed the calls to change their behaviour on the roads to help reduce road fatalities. Listeners were provided an opportunity to call in and engage the panellists.

In the financial year 2017/2018, R399 000.00 was paid for the live radio dialogue.

Since its launch, Power 98.7 FM radio station was named the second most influential media platform in business in an analysis of the Agenda Setting Media (ASM), which was commissioned by Media Tenor SA.  The station also emerges as one of Google’s top 10 trending search lists of 2013 in the Zeitgeist rankings, as searched by South Africans.  These statistics proved Power FM to be a good media platform for SANRAL to create media partnerships and build media relationships as well as communicating salient road safety information to the public.

The FID referral to SAPS does not relate the matter back to the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, Act 12 of 2004, as amended, therefore the RAF keeps no records specific to referrals as contemplated in the question and is unable to respond to the remaining questions.

The RAF has various mechanisms in place to report criminal conduct and, or, misconduct. In addition to a Forensic Investigation Policy, the RAF has an Ethics Policy which provides for disclosures in terms of the Protected Disclosures Act, No. 26 of 2000. The FID is in charge of the Fraud Tip-off Line, through which criminal conduct and corruption can be confidentially reported. A duty is placed on employees, in several policies, to report suspicious activities to the FID, or anonymously through the Fraud Tip-off Line. FID statistics for the period 2012 to 2017 bears witness to the extent that fraud is experienced and managed by the organization and demonstrates the RAF’s commitment to combat fraud and corruption (refer to the table below):

(a) What are the details of the plan that the Road Accident Fund (RAF) has put in place in respect of the projected financial deficit in the next three financial years, (b) who developed the plan and (c) what methods and processes does the RAF use and/or rely on when determining or projecting a financial deficit in the following financial year(s)?

Reply:

(a) The RAF Accident Fund (RAF) annually submits financial projections for the next three financial years, through the Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), and Estimates of National Expenditure (ENE). These projections inform the Department of Transport and the National Treasury of the RAF’s funding requirements, as well as the expected deficits. These projections are used by the National Treasury to determine the fuel levy income to be allocated to the RAF. The financial projections are included in the RAF’s Annual Performance Plan (APP), which is approved by Parliament, (b) the APP is developed by the Board in consultation with the Management of the RAF and the RAF’s Statutory actuaries have developed a Funding Model, which is updated on an annual basis and (c) The financial projections are based on the expected fuel levy income, historical and expected claims expenditure and administration expenditure forecasts. The fuel levy forecasts are based on the volumes of fuel expected to be sold and expected increases in the fuel levy per litre. Claims expenditure forecasts are based on the historical claims expenditure trends and inflation, as well as the number of claims expected to be reported and settled, on an annual basis. Operational costs are increased each year by the National Treasury’s Consumer Price Index inflation projections.

How many kilometres of the national roads in each district municipality and province in the country have street lights?

Reply:

As most of the street lights on national roads within local authority areas are owned and maintained by the relevant local authority, SANRAL does not have the relevant details on its asset registers, and as such cannot report on these kilometres. However, for the street lights that are owned and maintained by SANRAL the information as requested is summarised in the tables below. These street lights are mostly located at SANRAL Toll Plaza’s, SANRAL Weighbridges, SANRAL Tunnels and SANRAL Interchanges and Freeway sections upgraded within the last 10 years.

http://pmg-assets.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/RNW1402TABLE.pdf

Notes:

1. Strengthening - This refers to reworking of exiting pavement layers and could include the addition of new layers to increase the structural capacity of the pavement to a condition that is very near or equal to that of an equivalent new pavement.

2. Re-gravel - This refers to the addition of a new gravel layer to replace lost gravel.

3. In addition, the estimated length of gravel network that needed to be upgraded to surfaced standard, that is where the traffic volume exceeds ADT of 300 vehicles per day was estimated at 9,800 km and a cost of R58.8 billion.

4. In addition, the Capacity Expansion Backlog was estimated at R118.9 billion for national roads, SANRAL, only.

b) The existing gravel roads that need to be surfaced was 9,800 km and 2,611 km with capacity backlog.

c) SANRAL unfortunately do not have access to the data at municipal level, as data was aggregated at provincial level for the above COTO report.

d) Estimate 2013 backlog costs were as follow:

(i) Strengthening/Re-gravel Backlog = R197,7 billion

(ii) Resurfacing Backlog = R58,8 billion

(iii) Capacity Expansion backlog = R118,9 billion (SANRAL only)
