Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) On what basis was the route for the N2 Wild Coast toll road selected, (b) what factors were taken into consideration when the selection was made, (c) were there any other alternative routes that were considered for the toll road and (d) what are the reasons that the alternative routes were not chosen?

Reply:

(a)The route was selected on the basis of a best-case scenario taking into consideration various combinations of factors that generally get analysed during the route determination process. This generally includes trade-offs, minimising impact, maximising benefits and avoiding certain risks.

(b) The factors included construction and operational costs, which are heavily influence by the terrain of the chosen alignment (i.e. shortest river crossings, avoiding steep gradients, etc), economic impacts (i.e. shortest most direct route to reduce user costs, etc), environmental impacts (avoiding environmental sensitive area or reducing impact to minimum, etc) and social impacts (i.e. number of people to be resettled, employment opportunities, etc).

(c)Numerous alternatives were investigated and considered during the initial scoping study. These were taken through a public participation process and were narrowed down to a total of 6 alternatives for the detailed Environmental Impact Assessment specialist studies, public participation process and associated reports. For more details on these alternatives please see the detailed reports on the SANRAL website (www.sanral.co.za) under Major Projects>>N2 Wild Coast Toll Road.

(d)The route finally given a positive Record of Decision by the Department of Environmental Affairs through the EIA process offered the best trade-off of all the competing factors and impacts between all the alternatives considered. The details are captured in the reports referenced above.

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Transport

(1) Whether, with reference to his reply to question 2055 on 29 June 2018, it has been made public in the meantime that the municipal councils of Ventersdorp, Ethekwini, Tlokwe, Midvaal and all jurisdictions where Total Client Services Ltd (TLC) operates as service provider on behalf of the municipal authority, have ignored the appointment of an agent (a proxy) and issue fines and summons directly to the owners of motor vehicles, causing perplexing consequences; (2) whether he is taking steps against the authorities and the service provider on the strength of evidence that, in this regard, the National Road Traffic Act, Act 93 of 1996, is violated by them in the manner specified; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether the regulation that stipulates that a motor vehicle license has to be renewed within 21 days after it expires is still applicable and whether it has been amended in any way; if not, (a) whether any amendment is envisaged in future and (b) what are the full reasons for this; if so, what (i) is the new regulation and (ii) are the full reasons for the amendment?

Reply:

(1) The issuance of road traffic related fines directly to the owner of the motor vehicle is not in line with the provisions of section 341 of CPA read with the regulation 336 of the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2000. In most instances the relevant prosecutors withdraw the charges as the notice was not properly issued. The Department will engage with the Road Traffic Management Corporation to advise the authorities to issue fines in accordance with the prescripts of legislation.

(2) The matter has not been brought to the attention of the Department, however we will be engaging with the Road Traffic Management Corporation to ensure that such practice is discontinued.

(3) Yes, it is still applicable.

(a) The Department is not considering any proposed amendment of the regulation at this moment.

(b) Based on the reply provided in (a) above (i) and (ii) falls away.

(1)(a) Who are the (i) previous and (ii) current consultants for the N2 Wild Coast toll road, (b) what is the total value of each consulting contract and (c) on what date was each consulting contract signed; (2) (a) who are the (i) previous and (ii) current contractors for the N2 Wild Coast toll road, (b) what is the total value of each contract and (c) on what date was each contract signed? NW3270E

Reply:

1.(a) (i) The previous consultants forming part of the N2 Wild Coast Consortium comprised of Hawkins Hawkins Osborn, Stewart Scott International and Sauders and Wium. They were involved with the original N2 Wild Coast Toll Road PPP concept design and proposal. This was in the late nineties.

(ii) The 112km greenfield section of the N2 Wild Coast toll road has subsequently been divided into 9 packages for detailed design and construction. As with the Mtentu and Msikaba bridges, the consultant’s appointments for these packages were procured through an open tender process. The outcome of this process resulted in appointment of the consulting firms as per the table below. As can be seen, the two big bridges were awarded in 2003 while the rest were awarded from 2 years ago.

(b) Please see the award values in Table 1 below.

(c) Please see appointment date in Table 1 below.

(ee) Steps taken

Actions PRASA is taking to reduce the injuries at railway stations:

  1. Ongoing Safety Awareness Campaigns conducted at Stations and at high incident Level Crossings.
  2. Elimination of illegal crossings in the Rail environment mainly through fencing, including walling of the operational tunnel in the long term.
  3. Acceleration of the Fencing Programme is an area where PRASA is focusing on in terms of reduction of fatalities as well as improved security that will enable better train performance.
  4. Elimination of high risk level crossings in the medium to long term. Speed restrictions -enforcement of speed restriction on platforms.
  5. Provision of staff at high risk locations, specifically to watch for people loitering in the Operational areas.
  6. Speed restrictions - enforcement of speed restriction on platforms and in the operational tunnel.

Actions PRASA is taking to reduce the injuries on trains:

  1. Train Service Performance improvement to reduce overcrowding and the need to rush for a train.
  2. Introduction of new trains with open walkthrough between coaches - no doors between coaches.
  3. Redesign/rebuild Platform (Platform Alignment). For example, three Platforms on the Pienaarspoort Corridor in Gauteng aligned with the new train set height.
  4. Improve surfaces on platforms and footbridges through the station modernisation, station upgrades, station improvement and footbridge projects.
  5. Staff Training in Crowd Control Procedures.
  6. Return coaches to service to improve availability of train sets and reduce overcrowding.
  7. CCTV Cameras/Monitoring on Stations.
  8. Platform Marshalls and Safety Patrollers deployed in high capacity corridors and stations.
  9. Introduce replacement of door mechanism (design options) during routine maintenance of train sets.
  10. Improve Inspection, Testing and Maintenance regimes for doors prior to train release - Daily Train Inspections conducted by Train Crew and Technicians.

(ff) Compensation of injured in the PRASA environment is based on a claim submitted against the insurers. Claims can be submitted years after an incident and compensation are not directly linked to injuries in a specific year. See detail attached

Note for those incidents that are not as result of a major incident where there is a R0 value reflected, PRASA is still litigating on the merits and quantum that’s to be paid to the plaintiff. The files for the various major incidents over the past three years are also attached.

(c) (i)(ii) Please see attached working paper for amounts paid back and still owing.

(d) The employees agreed to pay back the money over a period ranging from 4 to 24 months

(e) The 2015/16 overpayment relates to the upskilling of traffic officers as per collective agreement 1 of 2015 between RTMC and organised labour. The collective agreement excluded senior inspectors from payment of an upskilling benefit however 24 names of senior inspectors were incorrectly included in the list of officials entitled to the benefit.

This mistake was identified after payment and senior inspectors were informed of the erroneous payment and repayment arrangements made.

In 2016/17, 17 employees were overpaid as a result of resignations subsequent to the salary payment date which is the 15th of each month. These overpayments were recovered from the leave pay-outs.

In this period an allowance due to the one official was incorrectly calculated resulting in overpayment. This was identified and the official made arrangements to repay the money.

In 2017/18, 16 employees were overpaid as a result of incorrect calculation of their 13th cheque.

(f) No interest was charged.

Railway Safety Regulator

(a)(i) During March 2017, the Railway Safety regulator became aware of overpayment of bonusses during the 2015/16 Financial Year period had been detected, and that recovery of such overpayments had to be initiated. The over-payment resulted in the incorrect salary scales being utilized for calculation of bonuses. A total of thirty nine (39) employees were affected:

The current RSR Debt Recovery Policy makes provision for recovery of overpayments for salaries, allowance and other related payments. The recovery of 2015/16 bonus overpayments was in line with the Debt Collectors Policy, and full consultations of employees has been concluded, as required. Recovery of the overpayment amounts for bonusses paid to executives during the 2015/16 financial year period, had commenced in March 2017. Recovery from other employees commenced in September 2017, in accordance with Section 9.6.2 of the RSR Debtor Management policy, which stipulates that “all internal debts shall be recovered within twelve months. The CEO may, under exceptional circumstances and upon submission of a motivation, approve any repayment period exceeding twelve months”. Consultations with the affected employees were conducted and employees were provided with the opportunity indicate their repayment preferences. Although it was the intention of the RSR to recover such overpayment during the 2017/18 financial year, with effect from September 2017 salary payments, certain RSR employees opted to repay their respective debt amount over a 12-month period, whilst permission was granted to 2 employees to exceed the twelve-month provision.

(a)(ii) No overpayments since April 2018 have occurred.

The Table below indicates the amounts which were recovered, as well as the period for such recovery. All monies have been recovered, and no interest was charged or paid.

Although government was involved in the establishment of SANTACO, the Department does not get involved in the election of its leadership. As a Section 21 company SANTACO is entitled to elect its own leadership independent from government.

(b) What reports have been provided to him and his department in this regard in the past three financial years?

Regarding the general administration of SANTACO, government committed to funding the organization to support the formalization of the taxi industry. In this regard, SANTACO submits a Business Plan at the beginning of each financial year and based on that, a Service Level Agreement is then entered between SANTACO and the Department to:

(i) Set milestones whereby funds are transferred upon achievement thereof; and

(ii) Require that reporting for expenditure monthly be in place and also that SANTACO provides audited financial statements in order to release funds for any new financial year.

(c) What are the main achievements of SANTACO in the past three financial years?

The rollout of the Hlokomela Programme/Campaign in all nine provinces has been a positive step in the right direction. The programme is aimed at reducing road accidents through checking and monitoring taxi vehicles, monitoring driver behavior and conditions as well as ensuring commuter wellness and safety. This is an ongoing programme by SANTACO to try and change the face of the taxi industry for the better.

(d) How did his Department or any of the entities reporting to him benefit from this?

Although progress has generally been slow, the biggest benefit for the Department, is the ability to engage with a formalized structure regarding any taxi related issues and allow the Department to utilize this platform for engagement with the industry at large.

Reply:

(a) (c) and (e) Answer – please refer to the attached listing

(b) and (d) Answer - The ACSA organisation, as a schedule 2 has adopted the PFMA and PPPFA regulation as a means of executing its procurement administration. These regulatory prescripts are in place to ensure that the procurement process is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective.

Further the PPPPFA sets out the standards, including the evaluation process to be employed in the evaluation and the selection of the most suitable service provider whilst ensuring that the 5 pillars as set out in section 217A of the act are upheld. The evaluation criteria are defined by a team of subject matter experts.

ACSA has employed a three-bid committee system. These independent committees are assembled to ensure that the procurement process in the evaluation, recommendation and the final award is fair, transparent, competitive, equitable and cost effective. The evaluation criteria by its nature are set to determine a match against the set requirements, thus ensuring that the award to make to a supplier has the capacity and capability to undertake the contract of a defined magnitude. This holistic capacity and capability assessment is not only focused on the technical aspects, it also has a strong focus on the financial strength, legal standing, and many other aspects that are deemed necessary on a tender by tender basis.

Further to the above, ACSA has a performance management system in place. This system ensures a continuous evaluation of the performance of the service provider through the life span of the contract.

The process is administered by the SCM department with participation of nominated end users, with timelines defined per tender.

With regard to the proposed high-speed train that will go through Kempton Park, has the bridge near Birchleigh station that goes over Elgin Road been tested for structural stability and strength; if not, when will such a test be conducted; if so, (a) when was the test conducted and (b) what were the results of the test?

Reply:

It is understood that the high-speed train refers to the new generation Electric Multiple Units to be rolled out by PRASA over the next 10 years in the commuter rail network. The bridge near Birchleigh Station that goes over Elgin Road, has not been tested for these trains.

a) The bridge was inspected in December 2017 and February 2018. The inspection conducted indicates that the bridge is structurally sound for the current traffic. Tests will be conducted in November 2018 which will take the high-speed traffic design into consideration.

b) The results of the inspection were as follows:

  • Structural damage to the bottom flange of the beams near the middle of the beam span.
  • Damage to the warning sign on the bottom flange of the northern outer bridge beam by the vehicles exceeding height restriction.
  • Corrosion of the deck soffit structural steel components was found in most cases.
  • Drainage of the bridge road pavement was ineffective or non-existent.
  • “No advance allowable vehicle height warning structures” mounted on either approach of the bridge.

The bridge is part of the planned bridges to be rehabilitated by PRASA in the 2018/2019 financial year.

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.

(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.
