(b) The objectives of operations are to reduce road crashes and make road safe; target un-roadworthy vehicles and unfit drivers such as drunk drivers; and increase visibility of officers on the road.

(c) Number of Road blocks is (i) 74 382

(ii) The Road Blocks were conducted in all provinces.

(d) These operations are informed by the Road Traffic Intelligence report and situational analysis per area.

(e)Successes and failures are determined by number of crashes in the province, and number of arrests of drunk drivers.

(f) (i) Lesson learned is that there is a need for stronger coordination of joint operationsto be guided from national level and provincewith identified critical locations to be assisted through the deployment of the National Traffic Police resources from time to time.

(ii) Each province is currently establishing coordinating structures to plan and optimize coordination.

(a) What are the reasons for the Road Traffic Infringement Agency not having their latest Annual Report available via their website, (b) by what date will the specified report be posted on their website and (c) what processes and procedures exist to ensure that such public documents are posted on their website upon publication

Reply:

1.  The RTIA Annual Report is very high resolution document that cannot be reduced to be a small size by even splitting it. A small portion of it is actual conversion to PDF while majority is in high resolution graphics. Website couldn’t accept it. We are making means to upload the aforementioned document to our website.

2.  Latest date is Friday, 03 March 2017 to be posted onto our website.

3.  The RTIA Policy on Performance Information management provides that the audited annual report should be approved by the Board (Audit and Risk Committee) be submitted to the Department of Transport, National Treasury and the Auditor-General. After such approvals it is presented to the Minister of Transport at the Annual General Meeting where after it is tabled at Parliament. Once, the Annual Report has been tabled at Parliament, the Agency then can publish it onto the website.

(ii) on what basis was the campaign designed

This is informed by our crash data that the majority of people who die on our roads are vulnerable road users. Thus the campaign sort to reach out passengers and pedestrians. It is common cause that during the festive season people travel long distances on the road, hence the campaign was also developed and targeted drivers as well.

(b) (i) how was the success of this campaign measured

This was through determining the number of people that were reached through our campaigns using various mediums. As well as through the feedback we received while engaging road users.

(ii) what factors emerged that showed statistics to be worse this festive season than the previous one

Factors that emerged to make this year’s statistics worse than the previous one include the rainy conditions that conditions that prevailed over this period. The festive season was also characterised by three successive long weekends. This encourage the consumption of alcohol and lond distance traveling.

(c) what plans are in place to rectify this?

Road Safety Education planned a more intense 365 Day Road Safety Plan. The Department, provinces and all the Roads Entities are gearing up to implementing the National Road Safety Strategy once approved by Cabinet. In the meantime efforts are being put in place to enhance the work that is being done through law enforcement, education and awareness campaigns as well as media campaigns. These programmes focus on the following:

  • Driver programme which includes dangerous driving, impaired driving, distracted driving and roadworthiness of vehicles
  • Passenger programme which includes seatbelt usage, child restraints, distracted behaviour
  • Pedestrian programme which includes impaired walking, distracted walking, dangerous walking and visibility
  • Cyclist programme which include impaired cycling, distracted cycling and dangerous cycling and visibility
  • Youth driver programme which was directed specifically to the youth driver Youth at Institutions of Higher Learning which was directed to youth at Universities and colleges
  • Stray animal programme which was directed to cattle owners and how to look after the cattle, visibility
  • Interfaith programme which was directed to churches

Gqada, Ms T to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) What are the reasons that the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) reduced the passenger services charges for the 2017 calendar year, (b) what criteria were used to determine the reduction of charges, (c) what impact will the reduction of charges have on ACSA and (d) what measures are put in place to mitigate the impact of the reduction of charges?

Reply:

1.    The largest contributors to the reduction in the ACSA tariff in 2016/17 are the following:

(i)   Durban International Airport (DIA) proceeds; and

(ii)  The Claw back

This causes a temporary reduction in the tariff while the amounts are being returned to the users. Once these amounts have been returned to the users, there will be an increase in the tariff in 2020/21. The Regulating Committee has noted that this should be considered during the next Permission application.

2.     The Regulating Committee to ACSA and ATNS applies a regulatory approach for the determination of revenues for ACSA which results in airport charges. The regulatory approach allows for a return on capital invested. This can be effected by claw backs i.e. historical capital expenditure claw back.The Regulating Committee has concluded that only 50% of the proceeds relating to the DIA should be returned to the users. The tariff reduction was calculated using ACSA’s model, where ACSA had inserted a tariff reduction in 2015/16 and 2016/17 as a result of the capex under spend.

3.    It will result in a reduction in tariffs in years 2017/18 and a subsequent increase in the tariff in 2020/21 will in excess of CPI once the claw-back and DIA proceeds have been returned to the users. The reduction is a temporary measure over 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20. Thereafter there will be an increase returning the tariffs more in line with ACSA’s long-term historical capital expenditure claw back.

4.     The reduction in charges is temporary in nature. ACSA’s model shows certain key financial ratios that were considered by the Regulating Committee to determine affordability. Furthermore, the Department of Transport has developed a roadmap for the review of the economic regulatory framework for ACSA and ATNS to address issues of predictability, transparency and long term sustainability of ACSA and the aviation industry at large. This involves amendments to the Airports Company Act and agreement amongst industry stakeholders of an appropriate funding model.

Figlan, Mr AM to ask the Minister of Transport

(1) Whether there are any plans in place to process the non-paid e-toll bills using the same processes and procedures used to deal with the infringement of traffic regulations and fines; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details;

Reply:

1.      Yes.

Non-payment of toll is a violation in terms of the SANRAL Act No 7 of 1998 and not in terms of the AARTO Act or NRTA. The actual unpaid toll amount is also recoverable in terms of the SANRAL Act.

Disobeying the regulatory toll sign is however an infringement in terms of the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 and prosecution will be in terms of the provisions of the NRTA.

There are two processes in place for the prosecution of traffic offences, the Criminal Procedure system in SA, excluding Tshwane and Johannesburg where the AARTO system is in place.

If a prosecution is instituted in terms of the SANRAL Act, the Criminal Procedure System will also be used as AARTO does not currently accommodate offences other than traffic related offences.

If the prosecution is instituted in terms of the offence of disobeying a toll sign, the AARTO system must be used, as it is the system regulating traffic offences in Johannesburg and Tshwane. Due to all toll payments being processed in the district of Tshwane, the AARTO system will apply.

2.     Please provide more details about the “specified plans”. I am not aware of any specification. A legal opinion is not required as the provisions of the AARTO Act are clear. If a person fails to comply with the infringement notice and courtesy letters issued to him or her and an enforcement order is issued for the infringement, the NaTIS system will block the issuing of NaTIS documents until such enforcement order is paid or otherwise resolved.

3.     See (2) above.

(a) What pedestrian road safety education and information campaigns are in place, (b) where have these campaigns taken place in each month in the past three financial years, (c) how are the successes and failures of these campaigns assessed, (d) what amount has been spent on these campaigns in the past three financial years and (e) who conducts these campaigns?

Reply:

a)  The Pedestrian road safety programmes focus mainly on those factors that lead to pedestrians being involved in road crashes and those are in the main:

  • Impaired walking, this focuses on drinking and walking. People who drink and walk are at a greater risk of being involved in a crash as their ability to act swiftly to avoid a crash is impaired. As such a need is there to educate people about the dangers inherent in drinking and walking.
  • Dangerous walking – specifically jay walking. There is a disturbing trend of people who walk freely on national and provincial roads that have high volumes of traffic and multi lanes. This is notwithstanding those who jay walk in built up areas. Our statistics show that quite a substantial number of pedestrians are victims of jaywalking.
  • Distracted walking, this relates walking while using a cell phone or listening to music on one’s headphones. It mostly applies to the youth. This results in the person not having a full appreciation of the happening around him or her. Thus rendering them vulnerable to a potential crash. The pedestrians are then educated and made aware of this danger.

b)  where have these campaigns taken place in each month in the past three financial years,

What are the reasons that she issued notices of intent to dismiss certain persons (names furnished) from their positions as board members of the Airports Company South Africa?

Reply:

Airports Company South Africa SOC Limited (ACSA)

The decision was made based on a Board Evaluation Report and Skills Matrix as commissioned by the Board with a view to identify skills gaps within the Board, and consequently to capacitate the Board to enable it to properly discharge its duties to the best interest of the organization. The said analysis wasmapped against the requirements of Board Composition from the Institute of Directors South Africa (IODSA) together with the requirements of the Company within its sphere of operation.

The retired directors either did not respond to the request to furnish their skills set or areas of development for the purposes of the skills analysis; or did not have the required skills and/or did not furnish all the requested information.

(d) (i) 1200 people were invited

(ii) 1300 attended

2.   (a) The difference between the indaba and road safety summit is that the indaba aimed at getting traffic law enforcers to discuss and share experiences among themselves on matters that impede them in the execution of their duties and how these can be improved.

On the other hand the Road Safety Summit brings together government agencies and civil society representatives to discuss on the cross-cutting issues of road safety and community-based initiatives that can be implemented to reduce road crashes.

(b) The two could not be combined because the indaba was focussed exclusively on professional issues facing traffic law enforcers in the country whereas the summit focusses on the issues confronted by the general public.

Reply:

1. The migration from a manual based system to the state of the art interoperable electronic payment system has been in the making for the past 15 years. The objectives for this system includes benefits such as reduced instances of fraud/misuse of card based concessions, ease of use (top ups) and registration, efficient monitoring of transactions with the objective to increase levels of service and in terms of throughput the system enables the processing of three times the current traffic volumes at plazas. Due to the interoperability achieved in South Africa, a user only needs to register an account once, fit a single electronic tag in a vehicle, and maintain this single account. This will allow the user usage at all plazas in South Africa except the Chapmans Peak toll road. Making payment electronically is in accordance with best international practices, and significantly reduced delays to road users at toll plazas. It also reduces the need for expansions of existing toll plazas, due to increased efficiency and throughput of an electronic toll collection lane, vs a manual toll collection lane. The electronic payment system will ensure existing concession holders not only continue to enjoy the discounts but their transaction will be more efficient and secure.

(i) The SANRAL Act allows for electronic toll collection/payment.

(ii)  The operational decision to implement electronic (Tag) payment was taken by N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) to improve the throughput of traffic at its toll plazas, alleviate congestion and improve transaction security. The ultimate purpose of the measure is to promote increased mobility and convenience, as well as enhance the travel experience of all road users, including Concession holders.

Introducing the choice of migrating a concession account to the Tag payment method is one of the ways in which N3TC is introducing additional security to the transaction environment. Possible card usage fraud, including theft and cloning, are amongst the issues this solution is intended to address.

As a result of stakeholder engagement, the decision was taken to retain existing payment methods and introduce the Tag as just another payment method.

In accordance with the terms and conditions, information, including Frequently Asked Questions, has been circulated to affected parties informing them of the pending changes. Social media, direct emailers, SMSs and posters have been used for the dissemination of information during the course of the past 12 months.

iii) All administration to implement the change is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer. This automated payment system is linked nationwide to SANRAL’s Transaction Clearing House (TCH) which manages all Tag transactions on South Africa’s national toll routes, including the N3 Route.

(2) Should a concession account holder choose to migrate their account to the Tag payment method, all administration required to implement the change to a Tag payment method is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer.

N3TC will continue to administer concessions on the N3 Toll Route.

Yes, all administration to implement the change is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer.

This automated payment system is linked nationwide to SANRAL’s Transaction Clearing House (TCH) which manages all Tag transactions on South Africa’s national toll routes, including the N3 Route.

(3) Toll fees are payable in terms of the applicable tariff charged (including all discounts) at a specific toll plaza and cannot expunge another toll at a different toll plaza. In terms of the TCH, which is a central transaction clearing house, users have an account which they top-up via various channels. The monies in that account is used for payment of specific electronic toll transactions.

Concession holders’ toll fees collected via the Tag payment method are also automatically deducted from the vehicle owner’s registered TCH Account. The user has the benefit that the tag will work at all toll plazas in South Africa which accept the Tag payment method, provided the Tags are active, is in the vehicle and that the registered TCH Account shows a positive balance.

It is important to note that historic balances relating to transactions incurred on the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (“GFIP”), which have been transferred to the Violations Processing Centre (“VPC”), are handled independently of this registered TCH Account. Thus, none of the funds deposited into the registered TCH Account are used to clear any outstanding VPC debt. However, road users remain liable for transactions incurred on GFIP during the Grace Period (currently 30 days per the Government Gazette), and these will be deducted from the TCH Account.

The manner in which toll fees are collected via the existing traditional payment methods, remains unchanged. None of these toll fees are allocated to a Concession customer’s TCH Account unless the migration to a Tag payment option has been chosen.

(4) Traditional payment methods shall remain unchanged and concession holders will have the option to migrate to the new system.

It must be noted that the process to implement the electronic payment system commenced 18 months ago, for the past 12 months there has been ongoing engagement with concession holders and this has resulted in a substantial transition period.

(1)Whether the new N3 route between Van Reenen Pass in KwaZulu-Natal and Warden in the Free State has been (a) decided upon and (b) duly authorised yet; if not, why not in each case; if so, what are the (a) details of the route that has been authorised, (b) budgeted costs for construction, (c) proposed funding sources for the construction, (d) details of any proposed (i) additional and/or (ii) increased tolls payable by motorists using the route and (e) details of the construction timelines, including all preparation work such as the supply-chain processes; (2) has a cost-benefit analysis been conducted for the proposed new route; if not (a) why not and (b) by what date will such an analysis be conducted; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. (a) At its meeting of 5 October 2016, the Political Heads of the PICC’s SIP 2 Committee endorsed the recommendation tabled for the selection of a preferred alternative for the improvement of the N3 Van Reenen Pass. It was also at this meeting where the Minister of Transport confirmed her decision to return to the drawing board the De Beers Pass project, in view of the serious concerns raised by various stakeholders in the Free State province. As such going forward the new project will be called the N3 Van Reenen Development.

(b) (a) (b) The Department is finalising an official instruction to SANRAL in this regard. SANRAL will be required to conduct a detailed investigation and costing of this preferred option along with its variations. The output of this process will be submitted to the Minister of Transport and the PICC for consideration.

(c) The existing concession contract was structured to make provision for the development of the De Beers Pass. This financial provision will now be made available to fund the new preferred option. In the event that the costing in (b)above exceeds this financial provision within the Concession contract, the Minister of Transport working in conjunction with the PICC, National Treasury and the Free State Province will determine the best funding model to cover the funding shortfall. This is imperative as neither the concession contract nor SANRAL will be able to carry the additional costs.

(d) (i)(ii) This process will be informed by the process stipulated in (b) above, and will be communicated in due course. It must be noted that the De Beers Pass was modelled not to result in additional toll tariffs.

(e) This is dependent on (b) above, which is envisaged to take a minimum of 12 months. It also depends on the environmental requirements of the preferred option, the resolution of any funding shortfall that may arise, securing the necessary licenses for water use and quarrying and the bidding process. Nonetheless, actual construction is not expected to start before 2020.

2. This will be covered in above. The timelines are as stipulated in (e) above.

Reply:

(1) Yes. The detail of question (1) is dealt with in Tables 1, 2 and 3 attached as Annexure A, B and C. For the sake of clarity, a TS 4 Recommendation refers to a warning issued to the vehicle testing station as a result of unresolved findings against the vehicle testing station. A TS5 recommendation refers to recommendation for suspension as a result of continuous unresolved findings.

(2) The detail of question (2) is dealt with in Tables 1, 2 and 3 attached as Annexure A, B and C:

(3) (a) In terms of the National Road Traffic Act, Act 93 of 1996, Motor vehicle registration, testing and licensing remains the responsibility of the applicable MEC in a province. With it comes the responsibility to provide services in this regard. In terms of the legislation the Inspectorate for Testing Stations must make recommendations to the MEC in terms of the compliance of vehicle testing stations in the province. It remains the prerogative of the MECs to make their own decisions with regard to the recommendations.

(b)In order to harmonize the implementation of legislation and standards, the Department has encouraged provincial participation in the Vehicle Technical Committee and Legislation Forums. Furthermore, legislation is going to be amended to ensure that the requirements are standardized.

3. (a) and (b): Yes, there are processes and mechanisms in place to ensure recommendations are executed. Furthermore investigations into the recommendations are underway; the process of reporting criminal activity to the South African Police Services is underway and suspension of certain individuals, where warranted, has been executed.

(1) The Minister empowered in terms of section 81(1) of the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 (Act No. 93 of 1996) to grant exemptions to motor vehicle due to their designs that do not comply with the provisions of the Act. The “TRH11 Dimensional and Mass Limitations and Other Requirements for Abnormal Load Vehicles” and “TRH11 Administrative Guidelines for Granting of Exemption Permits for the Conveyance of Abnormal Loads” TRH 11 are guidelines document which are used in assisting me in making the decision.

(2) Paragraph 2.2.2 of the TRH11 “Dimensional and Mass Limitations and Other Requirements for Abnormal Load Vehicles” clearly outlines the maximum allowable dimensions under permit of the load which may be carried by the vehicle for which principle approval have been issued.

(3) In terms Section 81 (2) of the Act the MEC may, after the applicant has paid the fees or charges referred to in section 7 (3) and subject to such conditions as he or she may determine, authorise in writing, either generally or specifically, the conveyance in a safe manner on a public road of passengers or any load otherwise than in accordance with this Act. Therefore, the MEC’s are empowered to prescribe any processes for the better management of these vehicles.

(4) As highlighted in paragraph 1 above and in accordance with Section 81(2) of the Act the MECs may use TRH11 and any other conditions in considering any applications.

(5) They may take into consideration the provisions of the TRH11 Administrative Guidelines for Granting of Exemption Permits for the Conveyance of Abnormal Loads in determining permit conditions..

South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL)

1(a) criteria were used to approve

(i) salaries

  • The Board uses comprehensive Market Surveys to determine the appropriate level for each pay grade, with a minimum and maximum per grade. The grade and adjustments includes consideration for inflation (including medical aid inflation), scarce skills, qualification and experience. Individual pay adjustments are based on performance or merit ratings.

(ii) bonuses

The current SANRAL Short Term Incentive (STI) policy, was introduced and approved by the SANRAL Board in 2012, after the pilot in 2011. This policy specifically abandoned the subjective discretionary bonus regime used since 1998. The policy takes the following principles into account:

a. The organisation as a whole has to perform above a specified minimum in terms of the Annual Performance Plan, in order to be eligible.

b. An individual has to score at least a 3 (5 point scale) merit rating to be eligible for a bonus

c. Four tiers of measurable performance was identified: Organisation, Region, Cluster and individual.

d. Each region and cluster has to perform above a specified level, per their identified measurable criteria, in order for that region or cluster to qualify for a score in that tier. The criteria is directly linked to the SANRAL strategic objectives.

e. Each grade participates in various weighting on the tiers depending on their opportunity to influence the tier.

This formula and all the supporting documentation or proof to determine the scores for each performance rating is reviewed in detail by Internal Audit before the payment is made. Once payment is made, this is checked against the calculated values for errors. The Auditor General then reviews during their normal annual audit the same process. On every tier, each performance criteria has to comply with the principles of “SMART” criteria, which leaves little room for subjectivity.

Individual performance contracts, which also includes performance criteria, signed annually between each individual and his/her line manager and submitted to HR for recordkeeping. This process is also audited by the AG in great detail. An individual will receive a merit rating, annually, which is then used as follows:

a. Adjust annual salary (also formula based), effective from 1 March each year.

b. Included in the formula to determine STI bonus, which is paid after the Annual Financial Statements and Performance information is signed off by the AG, normally in September.

(b) procedures exist to verify that the specified criteria were (i) used and (ii) followed in the (aa) 2013-14, (bb) 2014-15 and (cc) 2015-16 financial years;

The processes are audited internally and externally by the AG.

(1)Whether any income generated by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) was transferred to the National Revenue Fund via her department since 1 April 2007, in line with the National Treasury’s 2007 Practice Note; if not, in each case, why not; if so, what amount of income generated by the RTMC was transferred to the National Revenue Fund during the specified period; (2) whether any income from transaction fees paid by the RTMC to the National Revenue Fund were claimed back by (a) her department and/or (b) the RTMC since1 April 2007; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether any decision was taken at any stage to stop the transfer of income generated by the RTMC to the National Revenue Fund, contrary to the specified Practice Note, in order to assist the Electronic National Traffic Information System to become self-funded; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) why, (b) what are the relevant details and (c) what steps has the RTMC taken to rectify the situation; (4) howwill the budget allocation of the RTMC in the 2016-17 financial year be affected by the payment to Tasima as per the court order and the undertaking in her department’s 2015-16 annual report that the RTMC is to reimburse her department for having made this payment?

Reply:

1. The matter relating to transferring of the income generated by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) to the revenue fund was laid to rest by the FFC resolution. We attached the FFC resolution for ease of reference.

2. The RTMC is a creature of statute and any monies generated and or income made by the corporation is regulated by the act that established the Corporation. It is therefore prudent to consider the resolution of the FFC as attached above.

3. The FFC resolution attached offer an explanation in relation to these matters.

4. The payment to Tasima post 2012 was per the various court orders against the department and no court order was ever made against the RTMC for the payment of theeNaTIS to the Tasima. Therefore there could be no legal ground or basis on which RTMC can be made to reimburse the monies paid.

What (a) are the full reasons for the recent erection of stop signs on the N12 between the R28 and R558 at Zuurbekom in the Westonaria Local Municipality in Gauteng, (b) traffic impact studies were undertaken (i) to ascertain the necessity for the stop signs and (ii) since the erection of the stop signs, (c) were the results of each of the impact studies in each case and (d) were the costs involved in erecting the stop signs?

Reply:

a) The N12 West route from Naturena in Johannesburg to the Northwest Province border at Fochville has been identified as the most fatal major route in Gauteng. The intersections in the Zuurberkom area have been identified as the most hazardous locations (HAZLOCs) on the N12. The factors that contribute to the dangers at these intersections include the following:

  • Excessive speed on the N12, especially since the recent rehabilitation of the road. Traffic speed monitoring has indicated that almost 40% of vehicles are travelling above the speed limit of 80km/h in this area;
  • High volumes of long trucks and other slow moving traffic crossing the N12, especially in the areas adjacent to the silos;
  • The area adjacent to the N12 in the Zuurberkom area that is developing, resulting in high volumes of pedestrians and cyclists crossing the N12’
  • Reckless and inconsiderate drivers behaviours;
  • High accident rates and fatalities in the Zuurberkom area, especially after the completion of the road rehabilitation (the number of fatalities had more than doubled from 2015 to 2016)

The installation of 4way stops at these intersections has been identified as the most appropriate measure to address these problem at these stage. In the longer term the installation of traffic signals at these intersections will be considered.

b) (i) Yes, traffic studies, investigations and inspections were undertaken by the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport and the Gauteng Department of Community Safety in consultation with the local law enforcement agencies as part of the West Rand Rims (road accident management system)

(ii) Yes, the situation is being monitored closely and regular inspections are being carried out.

c) The study confirmed the need for the 4-way stop and indicated the need for further measures such as overhead lighting, rumble strips and continuous traffic law enforcement in this area

d) No separate record of the costs for the instillation were kept as they were installed as part of the routine maintenance activities.

Did (a) her department and/or (b) any entity reporting to her conduct feasibility studies on Vuwani Airport in Limpopo, which is not in operation and remains a white elephant; if not, (i) why not and (ii) who is responsible for the maintenance of the specified airport?

Reply:

(a) The National Department of Transport has not conducted feasibility studies on Vuwani Airport in Limpopo.

(b) The Limpopo Department of Transport has conducted a pre-feasibility study for the Vuwani/P.R. Mphephu Airport during 2010. The study was part of the Limpopo Airlift Strategy, with the purpose of providing direction and guidance for the development of aviation in the province. Five generic strategies were identified in determining the status of each of the airports considered at the time, as follows:

1. Grounded: Nothing should be done as there is no, or very little potential, now or in the future, for aviation development.

2. Delayed: The development of aviation will only take place in the long term and is awaiting other matters to be put in place.

3. Boarding: There is some market potential, which should be left to the market to action and develop.

4. Take-off: There is good market potential which would be picked up by the market with minimum intervention.

5. Catapulted Take-off: There is market potential, but the development of aviation will only take place with significant intervention from government.

The Vuwani/P.R Mphephu Airport fell within the third category. The Limpopo Department of Transport decided to wait a few years so that further analysis could be done on the Vuwani/P.R Mphephu Airport as well as the other public airports within the province. Such analysis will consider developments that are taking place at, amongst others, Lephalale, Musina and its SEZ status, and the Tubatse area.

The Limpopo Department of Transport is currently collaborating with the Department of Public Enterprises in determining if some of these airports can be re-commissioned and the extent of improvements that are required to enable re-commissioning.  The Limpopo Aviation Technical Stream has been established and various meetings have already been held. The Province is currently developing the Terms of References for the viability assessment, which should be conducted no later than the 2017/2018 financial year. This will provide an indication if P.R. Mphephu Airport will be viable and the costs associated with its re-commissioning, should the indication be positive. Other options will be explored depending on the outcome of the viability study.

(b) (i) N/A

     (ii) The airport is an asset of the Limpopo Department of Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure, although the buildings are utilised by the Limpopo Department of Transport. The Limpopo Department of Transport has not allocated any maintenance budget pending the outcome of the viability study.
