Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport

On what date did the (a) Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) kerbside and (b) trunk route both become fully operational; (2) whether negotiations with taxi associations have been completed; if not, what are the obstacles preventing finalisation of the negotiations; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) on what date were all the pedestrian bridges (a) completed and (b) opened?

Reply:

(1)(a) The BRT kerbside operations of the City of Ekurhuleni’s Bus Transport commenced in October 2017 with an introductory service (operating with limited buses). In January 2019, the system was expanded further North, to commence from Tembisa Hospital. The kerbside operations use portions of the dedicated lanes, except in areas where construction is underway at stream crossings and trunk stations.

(b) The BRT trunk route operations are planned to commence from September 2021 in a staged approach. The operations of the trunk route have been delayed by the construction of median trunk stations and the stream crossing. The trunk route is expected to be fully operational during the 2021/2022 financial year as the stations are at practical completion and significant progress has been made on the stream crossings construction.

2. The following processes needs to be completed:

  • Registration process (identification of affected operators) – negotiations canonly be undertaken with the affected operators;
  • Cost component of the Business Value Surveys (revenue information hasbeen signed off); and
  • Execution of the Market Share Surveys.

As a result, negotiations can only be undertaken after all the above relevant Industry Transition processes have been completed.

(3)(a) Construction of the pedestrian bridges was completed in June 2019.

(b) The bridges are not yet fully open pending completion and operationalization of the median trunk station in September 2021. Pedestrians have however been allowed to use the bridges to cross the trunk route since completion in June 2019.

(1)Whether, with reference to the reply to question 898 on 20 April 2018, operating costs stated, only include the limited kerbside services; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, how is the huge cost of limited kerbside services justified; (2) whether the operational costs include payments of consultants; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) what amount is to be paid to consultants in each year, (b) on what date will the consultants contracts come to an end and (c) what is the purpose of employing consultants in each case?

Reply:

1. The operational costs were for kerbside services of up to 22 buses by 2019/2020. During 2020/2021, the services expanded to 40 buses. It is envisaged that trunk stations will be operational in 2021/2022.

Due to delays in procuring buses and concluding minibus negotiations, the earlier projection of R258 million in operating costs for 2018/19 did not materialise and the City projects R214 million for 2021/2022.

The DoT has expressed concern at these costly interim operating costs and interim compensation and has requested that the City attempt to minimise costs and maximise revenues even prior to full trunk station operations commencing.

The City is currently exploring how it can reduce any contractual costs without jeopardising minibus operator negotiations.

2. The operations costs exclude consultants and are direct payments to the bus operating company.

(a), (b), and

(c) Consulting costs fall under the Project Management line item and are estimated at R57 million for 2021/2022. This covers professional services related to stakeholder consultation, contract monitoring and optimisation, system planning, minibus negotiations, universal access for people with disabilities, etc.

The DoT has informed all cities repeatedly over the past three years, that consulting costs via general purpose project management procurements is to be minimised and ultimately avoided and that specific specialised consulting services should be procured directly on a needs basis without costly Intermediary sub-contracting arrangements.

Whether, with reference to his reply to question 687 on 3 April 2019, his department has withheld any transfers; if not, why not; if so, (a) what amount has been withheld, (b) from what date were transfers withheld and (c) what are the further relevant details?

Reply:

a) There were no transfers that were withheld, in the 2018/2019 financial year for the municipality.

b) Not Applicable.

c) Even though transfers were not withheld, a portion of the Public Transport Network Grants (PTNG) Allocations was stopped, in terms of the Division of Revenue Act (DoRA) section 19, in order to mitigate and reduce the municipality’s low expenditure trajectory.

An amount totalling R90 million was effectively stopped, made up of an initial R48,5 million identified by National Treasury and Department of Transport as part of the expenditure review. An additional R41,5 million was volunteered by the municipality.

The municipality’s original PTNG allocation amounting to R694,6 million was reduced to R604,6 million.

The stopped R90 million allocation was subsequently reallocated, in terms of DoRA section 20, to other municipalities within the PTNG programme, based on their capacity to absorb further allocations.

Reply:

1. Section 10 of the Civil Aviation Act 13 of 2009, which was supposed to establish the Aviation Safety Investigation Board, as an independent entity for investigation of aircraft accidents and incidents is not in force. The Chapter dealing with aircraft accident and incident investigation is part of the Civil Aviation Bill which is currently before parliament. An independent aircraft accident and incident investigation board will, therefore, be established upon proclamation of the Bill.

2. The Board has not yet been established. The budget will be appropriated upon the approval of the Civil Aviation Bill.

3. There is no allocation for the Board as it does not exist.

4. The Accident and Incident Investigation Division of SACAA is conducting the investigation in an independent manner in line with the Ministerial Order issued by the then Minister of Transport. Upon conclusion of the investigation, the incident report will be made public.

Whether (a) the investigation and (b) report into the SA Airways (SAA) Alpha Floor incident that occurred during the SAA flights to and/or from Brussels on or about the 24 February 2021 have been concluded; if not, (i) what are the reasons for non-completion and (ii) by what date will the investigation and report be completed; if so, what are the details of the (aa) findings and (bb) recommendations?

Reply:

The investigation and (b) report into the SA Airways (SAA) Alpha Floor incident that occurred during the SAA flights to and/or from Brussels on or about the 24 February 2021 have been concluded (i) N/A (ii) The investigation was completed on 08 June 2021. The report was handed over to the operator and they were given a time to respond to the report addressing the contents of identified issues.

(aa) The findings of the investigations were as follows:

Similar occurrences happened in 2014 and in 2015 and were never reported to the SACAA.

Relating to this specific incident of February 2021, when performing the engine run Procedure Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) _71-00-00-860-845-A_Engine_Automatic_Start) the reset of the Fuel Control and Monitoring Computers (FCMC) 1&2 was not performed. Because the FCMC 1&2 was not performed and the AC remained powered since the engine run, the Zero Fuel Weight (ZFW) inserted at the time of the engine run was still present in the FCMC when the engines were started again at 21:59 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

If the crew entered the ZFW, in the Multi-Function Display Unit (MCDU) INIT B page, as per “Cockpit preparation” Specific Operating Procedure (SOP), this new ZFW was necessarily different from the one actually recorded in the FCMC (107,9T) leading to the display of the amber scratchpad message - REENTER WEIGHT/CENTER OF GRAVITY (CG) - on the MCD and the request to re-enter the ZFW and the ZFWCG even if they were correct. Had this been performed, the new ZFW value would have been taken into account by the FCMC.

The pre-departure check of the Gross Weight (Comparison of the load sheet Gross Weight with the Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitor (ECAM) Gross Weight (GW)) included in the “Before Eng Start” SOP was not performed. If done, the discrepancy would have been identified and the ZFW entered for the second time in the MCDU INIT B page, would have forced the new ZFW to be taken into account by the FCMC.

Although the Flight crew correctly assessed the situation and actioned the appropriate measures to contain the very short Alpha Floor alert that occurred, it is evident that both the flight crew and the ground crew did not execute any of the two procedures in place which are established to prevent this occurrence.

(bb) recommendations include the following:

  1. SAA to document and record aircraft de-energizing methods and sessions as an occurrence.
  2. The procedure of weight review before engine start, must be added into the pre-flight checklist.
  3. SAA to create a SOP compliance procedure/checklist.
  4. Ground and flight crew to attend CRM course together.
  5. SAA to report any safety jeopardising action to the SACAA within a 12-hour period.
  6. SAA to report to SACAA as to why previous Alpha-Floor incidents were not reported and propose how the organisation intends to rectify this shortcoming.
  7. SACAA to consider taking enforcement action against SAA for failing to report these since 2014. (This recommendation has been implemented - Operator was issued with a financial penalty).

(a) On what date will he finally make an announcement on the future of e-tolls in Gauteng, (b) what is the delay in making the announcement and (c) by what date will he ask Cabinet for a final decision on e-tolls?

Reply:

As the honourable Member may be aware, Department tabled various funding options around the Electronic Toll on Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) for Cabinet decision, however, after consideration of the options, Cabinet directed that both the Department and Treasury jointly, re-look at the options and re-submit to Cabinet for consideration.

(a) The date for announcement on the future of e-tolls in Gauteng cannot be determined at this stage as the discussions around funding for the system continue to take place, focusing on the various financial options available.

(b) The delay on the announcement is that the process to pronounce on the future of the e-toll take time as the two Ministers (Transport and Finance) had to first meet and in their meeting they agreed that further studies be conducted to inform the decision to be made.

(c) It is important to note that the Department is committed to finding a workable solution that does not ‘drown the country in debt’ but is equally sensitive to the public’s issues and once it is clear on the sustainable model, a submission will then be made for Cabinet final decision

Whether his department has put any COVID-19 relief measures in place to assist small, medium- and micro enterprises to pay less at toll gates on the national roads; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The revenue losses suffered by SANRAL due to traffic reductions during lockdown, is estimated around R650 million. However, SANRAL continued to apply frequent user discounts of 20% to 40% (Class 1) and local user discounts of 40% to 90% (Class 1) on all its routes, regardless of this loss in revenue. SMME’s therefore continue to benefit from these discounts all over the country. Details of the discounted rates are available on SANRAL’s website and in the published Gazette of 11 February 2021 – Vol 668.

It must be emphasised that by awarding contracts SANRALs contribution to SMMEs is far more significant and sustainable. Therefore, SANRAL endeavoured to ensure it continues to contribute significantly to the recovery of the country’s economy by continuing to speed up its construction programme. This was done despite challenges in the changing procurement environment to adjust to lockdown regulations. To this end, SANRAL awarded 64% more construction projects in 2020/21 financial year than in the prior year. More details of SANRAL’s contribution to SMMEs, such as the Supplier Development Desk, is published in the Integrated Report of 2021 and on SANRALs website.

In light of the fact that one of the biggest hindrances to the Special Investigating Unit carrying out their mandate with regard to the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) was the lack of paperwork and records which have disappeared and cannot be traced, including many of the contracts that were signed between Prasa and service providers, what steps will he be taking to (a) ensure the recovery of paperwork and records of such contracts and (b) investigate how (i) the records went missing in the first place and (ii) payments on contracts were honoured if no records of such contracts exist? NW860E

Reply:

a) PRASA will request all service providers that are currently rendering services where physical contract documentation could not be traced to submit copies of the signed contract agreements with PRASA.

b) (i) PRASA has signed a Secondment Agreement with SIU to investigate all contracts that were identified in the Public Protector Derailed report and flagged also by AGSA as irregular. Such investigation would shed light on how contract documents went missing in the first place and what corrective measures should be taken against responsible individuals. Internally the key challenge is on non-availability of documents and SIU seems to be having capacity constraints. SIU has indicated that the capacity challenges are being addressed and the investigations will be finalised in June 2021.

(ii) The process to pay for services where contract documentation is missing requires end-user departments to compile the necessary submissions with relevant source documents and confirmation of receipt of goods or services for approval by the GCEO and Finance prior to processing of any payment, especially for goods and services of a critical nature that PRASA cannot afford to operate without. In instances where payments have been processed without the necessary documents, based on the SIU investigation, appropriate corrective action will be taken against responsible individuals.

With reference to the Public Transport Network Grant, (a) what exactly is the grant money for, (b) is there a contract with his department for the grants, (c) what proportion of the grants are allocated to capital expenditure and (d) what is the total breakdown of all capital expenditure for each of the five phases up to and including completion; (2) What was the exact (a) operating costs, (b) fare income and (c) council funding for each specific cost including operational in the (i) 2016-17, (ii) 2017-18, (iii) 2018-19 and (iv) 2019-20 financial years?

Reply:

1. Public Transport Network Grant

a) The Public Transport Network Grant (PTNG) is a Division of Revenue Act (DoRA) schedule 5B conditional Grant allocation;

To provide funding for accelerated construction and improvement of public and non-motorised transport infrastructure that form part of a municipal Integrated Public Transport Network (IPTN) and to support the planning, regulation, control, management and operations of fiscally and financially sustainable municipal public transport network services.

b) The PTNG allocations are subsequently appropriated to municipalities that submit business plans with associated expenditure estimates per Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) period, wherein the 1st year of the MTEF reflects an actual appropriation whilst the 2 outer years are indicative allocations.

The allocation is governed by the Public Transport Network Grant Framework that is published with the annual Division of Revenue Act.

c)Infrastructure allocations:

 R 450 m

R 581 m 

R 478 m

R 413 m

R 289 m

d) Capital expenditure for each of the five phases.

See table below. The initial costing of the system was based on build first and operate later approach whereby all corridors will be developed with dedicated bus lanes, however this approach is being reviewed and a financially contained approach will be implemented for future phases.

The total costs to date on Phase 1 are R 2 2290 mil. Due to a scaling down to now operate first and built later strategy, the infrastructure expenditure has been reduced for the next few years and for future phases. The estimates for the future phases are high-level and more accurate estimates will be developed during the design stage of each phase.

The NDoT will continue to work with the City to reduce costs, ramp up operations faster and increase fare revenue while reducing operating deficits.

It must be noted that the City is still operating a starter pilot service since November 2017 and therefore it is operating sub optimally and should have scaled up to a fully fledged service by July 2019.

The SACAA Flight Inspection Unit aircraft crashed on 23 January 2020 and the organisation went on a tender to source a service provider to conduct the calibration for its clients. The tender was approved, and an SLA signed in April 2020. The service provider appointed sub-contracted equipment and crew from a European company. Due to Covid-19 the service provider could not reposition the aircraft from Europe to South Africa due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. There were delays in obtaining a Foreign Operator Permit from the Air Service Licencing Council due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

All the major airports are equipped with modern based technology such as GNSS and RNAV approaches, in addition to the standard VOR approaches. So, being without an ILS doesn’t leave an airport stranded with traffic that cannot land in bad weather. They can also use the GNSS/RNAV approaches to achieve the same effect.

At the time of submitting this report all ILSes were operational and within the regulated parameters except for those where the owners opted not to calibrate.

THE international maritime organization SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME: MR TERRENCE MABUELA

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) International Maritime Law Institute [IMLI] was established in 1988 under an agreement concluded between the IMO and the Government of Malta with the purpose to train officers principally from developing countries in International Maritime Law. Its mission is to enhance capacity-building in all States, to contribute to the fulfilment of the IMO objectives thereby promoting safe, secure, environmentally sound and sustainable shipping through international cooperation.;

Mr. Terrence Mabuela: Deputy Director for Maritime Environment Protection was admitted and offered a scholarship by the International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI) on the 20 July 2020 to study a Master’s of Humanities in International Maritime Legislation at Malta, Sweden. Mr. Mabuela was therefore released by the Minister of Transport on a full-time study leave of nine (09) months i.e from October 2020 to June 2021 with full pay in line with the provisions of the Public Service Regulations, 2016.

Due to the impact of Covid-19 and attempts by all states including South Africa to curb the spread of the virus, Mr. Mabuela was allowed to commence his studies online from October to December 2020. However, the online studies were a temporary measure until the pandemic is controlled in which students were expected to report to the Maritime Institute in Malta on a full-time basis in January 2021.

THE FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

The International Maritime Organization Scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation costs, Insurance costs (Fire, theft public liability and repatriation in cases of emergency) and monthly stipend of 315 Euro. The scholarship does not cover travel cost to and from Malta.

The Department spent an amount of R18 674.65 towards Mr. Mabuela’s travel to Malta in January 2021 and has already bought the return ticket for his return to South Africa in July 2021 to the value of R18 674.65.

In response to Covid-19 protocols, the International Maritime Law Institute required students to quarantine for 14 days at Turkey on their way to Malta which incurred additional cost of R25 500.00 for accommodation to the department. The total costs for travel and accommodation for Mr Mabuela is therefore R62 849.30.

Whether the Government has any strategy to bring stability and peace to the logistics sector which is currently facing violence regarding alleged disparities in the hiring of foreign and local drivers of trucks; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Department of Employment and Labour can amplify the reply further but it suffices to state that our President, Mr. Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa, established an Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) led by the Department of Employment and Labour, which amongst others has been tasked with the responsibilities of dealing with challenges facing the Road Freight Industry Logistics.

As the Department of Transport, we have published Government Gazette 44484 dated 23 April 2021 proposing an insertion of Regulation 116A into the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2000. For ease of reference, the aforesaid draft provides as follows:

116A. Authority of a Professional Driving Permit issued in a foreign Country

(1) the Authority provided by a professional driving permit issued in a foreign country shall apply in respect of a vehicle registered in the country that issued any such permit.

(2) A permit referred to in sub-regulation(1), shall not apply to a vehicle registered in the republic.

The Draft Amendments will therefore effectively ban drivers who hold a Public Drivers Permit (PDP) issued by a foreign country from operating vehicles registered in South Africa.

(1)Whether he has adopted any strategies to rebuild the crumbling rail infrastructure, especially in major cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, since many persons were not using public transportation for some time during the lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) how does he intend to protect existing infrastructure from further deterioration and destruction?

Reply:

1. There are plans in place to rehabilitate the rail infrastructure in various corridors across the country. In the City of Cape Town specifically, the Central Line Corridor which carries the majority of residents in the city from their places of residence to work is a flagship project announced by the President where the entire line is earmarked for major rehabilitation covering the following:

  • Removal of illegal settlements from rail servitude;
  • Rehabilitation of the Power Supply System;
  • Rehabilitation of the Perway Infrastructure;
  • Modernisation of the Signalling Infrastructure;
  • Repair of station facilities for customers.

Apart from the Central Line the following corridors are also earmarked for resumption of services and rehabilitation of infrastructure:

  • Cape Town – Simonstown (WNB & ATL)
  • Cape Town – Strand

In Johannesburg a number of corridors are also being rehabilitated for the MTEF period:

  • Leralla – Johannesburg
  • Johannesburg – Naledi
  • Residensia – New Canada
  • Kwesine – Germiston
  • Randfontein – Johannesburg

2. In order to protect the existing infrastructure from further deterioration and destruction the following preventative measures will also be put in place to address recurrence:

  • Close off the corridor through Walling
  • Provision of Street to Street access to pedestrians to cross the railway line
  • Upgrade of the Security Interventions across the corridor incorporating the community involvement approach where community members volunteer their services to provide intelligence to the SAPS, CPF and PRASA Protection Services on crime incidents along our corridors.

What sustainable measures have been taken to ensure that there is a sustainable resolution to e-toll challenges, considering widespread non-payment of e-toll bills and payment delays being blamed on the COVID-19 pandemic?

Reply:

SANRAL participated in the Technical Task team, led by the Director-General of Transport, to present various options to Ministerial Committee, which was led by the President and included the Ministers of Finance and Transport as well as the Premier of Gauteng. The Technical Task team concluded their work some time before lockdown in 2020. The decision is now in the hands of Cabinet.

In the meantime, SANRAL has to continue to operate within existing financial constraints and in line with National Treasury budget approval.

(1)Whether his department made allocations to provincial departments for the specific purpose of supporting private bus companies to acquire personal protective equipment; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the specified allocation to each provincial department; (2) whether there has been any monitoring on how the funds were allocated to private companies; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the list of (a) all such companies that may have benefited and (b) the amounts allocated to each; (3) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The Department allowed provinces to utilise up to 5% of the Public Transport Operations Grant funds reprioritised to respond to Covid-19 pandemic for the sanitisation of public transport vehicles and other public transport facilities, including the provision of personal protective equipment for public transport workers and hand sanitisers for passengers. For the 2020/21 the maximum amount provinces could utilise for the acquisition of personal protective equipment totalled R337 480 000 broken down as follows:

Eastern Cape: R13 450 000

Free State: R14 871 000

Gauteng: R129 965 000

Kwazulu Natal: R62 318 000

Limpopo: R20 102 000

Mpumalanga: R33 847 000

Northern Cape: R3 026 000

North West: R6 221 000

Western Cape: R53 680 000

2. Provinces are responsible for determining how these funds are distributed to individual operators and ensure that expenditure is within the allocated amount. The Department only receives high level consolidated monthly performance reports from provinces in line with the requirements of the grant framework. Specific details relating to names of operators/companies and precise amounts are retained by provinces.

(3) All grant related information including allocations, grant conditions and past performance are gazetted in the annual Division of Revenue Act and its Framework hence there is no need for an announcement.

(1)Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Tourism to question 205 on 24 February 2021 regarding the unsubsidised charter and tourism bus industry that have not been able to work for a single day to utilise their tourism and charter permits since 26 March 2020, whereas many operators have paid their prepaid licence fees for the year March 2020 to March 2021, permit holders will be required to pay for the 2021-22 financial year even if they paid for the 2020-21 financial year whereas they did not operate at all; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what engagements has his department undertaken to discuss and resolve the issue to reimburse the prepaid license fee; (2) whether his department has engaged in any discussion and/or meeting to resolve and/or plan a way forward to assist the charter and tourism bus industry with their query on prepaid licensing fees; if not, on what date is it envisaged that (a) his department will meet with any other department and (b) the issue of the license fees will be addressed; if so, what are the further relevant details?

Reply:

1. Matters related to vehicle licensing falls under Schedule 4 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and are therefore within the purview of provinces. The Department must first seek concurrence of the respective provinces on this matter and only then can a decision be taken accordingly.

2. In view of the above, the Department recently held a meeting with the Committee of Provincial Heads of Departments of Transport and the Private Charter Passenger Association (PCPA). The latter made a broad representation regarding the impact of Covid19 on the Charter and Coach operators due to lockdowns and subsequent travel restrictions. As part of their submissions, they alleged their members were unable to generate any income during lockdown level 5 and 4, since all borders were closed and tourism activities suspended. The Department sought concurrence of the respective provinces, since vehicle licensing matters are provincial in scope. Once concurrence has been received from provinces, if at all, the Department will only then proceed to issue a Direction under regulations 4(7) made under section 27(2) of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (Act No. 57 of 2002).

Reply:

1. PRASA’s business model does not devolve the operation of train services to a district or local municipality level in terms of the municipal demarcations framework but is based on a corridor approach managed at a Regional (Provincial) level. Therefore, the assessment of damages suffered will follow a corridor based model.

Thus, the full relevant details of the damages suffered by Metrorail due to (a) theft, (b) vandalism in (i) each (Region) province, to date are listed in the tables below.

Narrative for Crimes Related Incidents – 2019/2020

Narrative for Crimes Related Incidents – 2020/2021

2. The measures which are in place to ensure the safety of all passengers at all times is:

  • Insourcing of security services to replace irregular contracts that were terminated in 2020;
  • Joint operations with South African Police Services within the rail operational tunnel as well as disruptive operations at second-hand dealers to arrest those that buy stolen goods;
  • Commuter Policing Forum deployment in home-based (township) stations;
  • Increased train patrols on identified problematic trains in effort to arrest perpetrators;
  • Line-based closures / stop-and-search with South African Police Service to search for stolen property that is being transported by train; and
  • Commuter Forum engagement to share intelligence information that may assist in improving commuter experience.

What are the details of exemptions granted by the SA Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) to the SA Airways (SAA) in order to enable the SAA flights to and from Brussels to transport COVID-19 vaccines on or about 24 February 2021; (2) whether, given the exemptions for these flights granted by the SACAA, it is not a conflict of interest for the SACAA to investigate the Alpha Floor incident that occurred during the SAA flights to or from Brussels on or about 24 February 2021, as it may constitute SACAA investigating itself; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of action taken or to be taken to ensure that the investigation of the SAA Alpha Floor incident is independently investigated and reported; (3) what are the details of the person(s) and/or institution(s) that are investigating the SACAA aircraft that crashed near George in the Western Cape on 23 January 2020?

Reply:

South African Airways (SAA) wanted to conduct a flight and one of the regulatory provisions required to conduct this flight is the consideration to regain recency of the nominated pilots. Due to the fact that SAA’s Aviation Training Organization (ATO) has not been operational since 27 March 2020, the cessation of all SAA operations as of October 2020, and other factors the airline pilots needed to comply with the South African Civil Aviation Regulations (SACAR) in respect of training and recency before undertaking the planned flight.

SAA therefore applied for an exemption from the following provisions of the South African Civil Aviation Technical Standards as they relate to the crew training and recency:

1.1 SA CATs 121.03.2 2. (1)(a)(c) (d) and (g) - relating to approval of an external training facility.

1.2 SA CATS 121.03.1 point 3 (5) (v) to (viii) & (7) (ii) (cc) & (dd) - relating to external instructor qualification to conduct training for SAA pilots.

1.3 SA CATS 121.03.3 10.1- relating to pilots regaining recency. 

1.4. SA CATS 121.03.3 3 This pertains to recurrent training:

The exemption was granted in respect of four pilots only.

In relation to the provisions of the exemptions: The SACAA is vested with the power to monitor and oversee safety and security in civil aviation. These powers are prescribed in legislation, being the Civil Aviation Act, 2009 (Act No. 13 of 2009). This Act gives powers to the Director of Civil Aviation to consider and, where good cause is shown and after being satisfied that the safety has been properly mitigated, grant an exemption to any person or body from compliance with the provisions of the regulations and associated technical standards.

(2) In terms of Section 37 of the Civil Aviation Act, the SACAA has a duty to investigate any occurrence, which does not fall under the definition of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 13. This is an international standard practice by all National Aviation Regulators.

The primary distinction in this provision is that there was no damage to the aircraft, property nor injury to personnel.

The South African Civil Aviation Regulations (SACAR) state that:

Functions of Civil Aviation Authority

73. (1) The Civil Aviation Authority has the function of conducting the safety and security oversight of civil aviation in the Republic by—

(2) In addition to the functions referred to in subsection (1) the Civil Aviation Authority has the following functions:

(m) to investigate aircraft accidents and aircraft incidents that the Aviation Safety Investigation Board has determined not to investigate in terms of Chapter 4 and for purposes of regulatory compliance with this Act;

A conflict of interest cannot be confirmed before the cause of the incident is determined. The SACAA investigation extends beyond the Alpha Floor incident and encompasses the lack of timely reporting of the incident to the SACAA as required by the Civil Aviation Regulations.

(3) The Minister of Transport appointed an independent investigating authority for the ZS-CAR accident. The Ethiopian Civil Aviation Accident Prevention and Investigation Bureau was duly appointed.

This is work in Progress, particularly the Legislative mandates pertaining to RTMC and RTIA , and this will need Parliamentary process to give ratification on the proposed amalgamation.

Whether, in light of a media briefing by the Chairperson of the Road Accident Fund (RAF), Ms Thembelihle Msibi, a few weeks ago when commenting on the RAF’s financial affairs (details furnished) and given that the RAF has begun a turnaround strategy whose implementation began on 1 April 2020, he is in any position to detail the list of service providers found to have been connected to the cases, including the 102 law firms reported to the Legal Practice Council for mismanagement of their trust accounts; if not, why not; if so, what are the full, relevant details?

Reply:

Of the 102 law firms reported to the Legal Practice Council (LPC) for mismanagement of their trust accounts, only 42 firms (listed below) have as yet not repaid the duplicate payments they received from Road Accident Fund (RAF).

As part of its recovery procedures the RAF withheld further payment to law firms identified as having received duplicate payments. However, a full bench of the North Guateng High Court, Pretoria, delivered judgment on 9 April 2021, in the matter of Road Accident Fund v Legal Practice Council and Others (58145/2020) [2021] ZAGPPHC 173, ordering the suspending of certain categories of writs of execution and warrants of attachment against the RAF, and in its judgment states that it does not believe that the RAF should withhold payments from successful claimants because of a dispute between the RAF and the law firms acting for the claimants. The court indicated that the RAF must instead approach the court on a case-by-case basis.

Consequently, the RAF has brought an Application in the North Guateng High Court, Pretoria, citing the 42 legal firms; the LPC; the Sheriff, Pretoria Central; the Sheriff, Pretoria East; the Sheriff, Centurion East the Sheriff, Johannesburg Central; the Sheriff, Johannesburg North; and, ABSA Bank Ltd.

In light of the fact that one of the biggest hindrances to the Special Investigating Unit carrying out their mandate with regard to the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) was the lack of paperwork and records which have disappeared and cannot be traced, including many of the contracts that were signed between Prasa and service providers, what steps will he be taking to (a) ensure the recovery of paperwork and records of such contracts and (b) investigate how (i) the records went missing in the first place and (ii) payments on contracts were honoured if no records of such contracts exist? NW860E

Reply:

a) PRASA will request all service providers that are currently rendering services where physical contract documentation could not be traced to submit copies of the signed contract agreements with PRASA.

b) (i) PRASA has signed a Secondment Agreement with SIU to investigate all contracts that were identified in the Public Protector Derailed report and flagged also by AGSA as irregular. Such investigation would shed light on how contract documents went missing in the first place and what corrective measures should be taken against responsible individuals. The SIU report would be finalised during March 2021.

(ii) The process to pay for services where contract documentation is missing requires end-user departments to compile the necessary submissions with relevant source documents and confirmation of receipt of goods or services for approval by the GCEO and Finance prior to processing of any payment, especially for goods and services of a critical nature that PRASA cannot afford to operate without. In instances where payments have been processed without the necessary documents, based on the SIU investigation, appropriate corrective action will be taken against responsible individuals.

Whether, with reference to his reply to Question 122 on 16 February 2021 regarding updating the National Guidelines for Traffic Calming, where he stated at the outset that the guidelines have not been updated, but later states that the technical committees of the National Road Safety Steering Committee have updated the National Guideline for Traffic Calming measures, including clearer designs for speed humps as a priority; he will furnish clarity regarding the seemingly contradictory information in the reply; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

It is correct that the National Guidelines for traffic calming have not been updated since 1998, however, it is worth noting that in the process of reviewing the guidelines through the National Road Safety Steering Committee (NRSSC), the committee found no major changes to the present 1998 guidelines. It is for that reason that the NRSSC looked at it as these guidelines will effectively remain unchanged.

What (a) is the total breakdown of all the monies that have been paid annually in the form of Roads and Transport Grant to the Rustenburg Local Municipality for the Rustenburg Rapid Transport system since 2008, (b) was the original budget for the project and (c) is the expected total spend to complete the project?

Reply:

Mrs C Phillips (DA) to ask the Minister of Transport:

(a) Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) was allocated funds from the Public Transport Network Grant from the 2010/11 financial year. From 2010/11 to June 2020, a total of R 3,855 billion has been allocated to the RLM and total expenditure is standing at R3, 163 billion.

The table below summarises the allocation and expenditure per financial year.

(b) Was the original budget for the project?

The original budget was estimated at R3 billion rands. It is important to highlight that it was impractical to construct all routes and other infrastructure at once and within a short space of time as this would have caused a gridlock. The municipality therefore had to phase-in construction. There were further objections in the initial stages of construction, which halted construction of bus lanes in the CBD and resulted in construction delays.

(c) What is the expected total spend to complete the project?

The majority of construction is completed and the municipality needs depot infrastructure. From henceforth, the city will use the grant operational component to pay compensation to taxi industry incumbents and run the service, these are estimated at R1.4 billion rands including compensation for affected operators over the next 12 years.

What is the breakdown of the total amount in income that the tolls on the national road between Johannesburg and Durban generate per (a) month and (b) year?

Reply:

Important to note that toll income from toll roads are used to:

  • Repay the debt raised to fund the capital cost of the initial road construction works and other major capital costs implemented during the life of the project (typically 30 years) to ensure that there is sufficient road capacity to cater for increasing traffic demand.
  • Cover the cost of road maintenance including pavement rehabilitation and resurfacing to ensure the economic sustainability of this crucial national asset over the life of the project.
  • Operation and maintenance of the toll collection system, including the toll plazas over the life of the project.
  • Undertake routine maintenance including grass cutting, minor road repairs, road marking and signage over the life of the project.
  • Provide route patrols including incident management, emergency response and road user assistance over the life of the project.

(a)(b) Toll revenue along the National Route 3 (N3) per month and year are derived as follow:

  • SANRAL – Marrianhill toll plaza - This is state toll road driven by Government with no profit objective, and
  • N3TC Concession - De Hoek Plaza, Wilge Plaza, Tugela Plaza, Mooi River Plaza and associated ramp plazas. – This is a 30-year concession with the private sector to secure off balance sheet funding and investment into infrastructure, with the associated private sector investor Return on Investment (ROI) objectives. Returns are however regulated through the concession agreement.

The monthly breakdown for 2019/20 audited financial year is provided in the Table below. The 2019/20 audited financial year is used since 2020/21 audited figures are not yet available. The 2020/21 numbers are expected to be approximately 25% lower due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What total amount would it cost his department to (a) eliminate all pot holes and (b) keep maintaining the roads to ensure that they are free of pot holes?

Reply:

a) The funding requirement to sustain South Africa Road Network through pothole repairs is estimated at (a) R700 to R1500 / per square meter.

b) As an Honourable Member may be aware it is difficult to eradicate potholes on the road network as the emergence of new potholes depends entirely on the extent and nature of rainfall in that month or year. It is important to note that the road maintenance funding allocated from the National Fiscus is not sufficient to maintain the road network in the three spheres of Government as there are competing needs to all sectors.

It’s worth noting that most of our Provincial road network has reached its design life (25 years) and were never designed for the current increased traffic volumes and traffic configuration.

With that said, my Department ensures that roads are properly maintained through the Provincial Road Maintenance Grant (PRMG). The PRMG is ringfenced for the maintenance of the Provincial Strategic Road Network including rehabilitation, strengthening of paved roads, re-gravelling, gravel road blading and blacktop patching (potholes with an amount of just over R12 billion per annum to all provinces.

By what date does he intend to commence with the building of a tarred road between Matatiele and Mount Frere in the Eastern Cape?

Reply:

The road in question between Matatiele and Mount Frere is T15 and a portion of it was upgraded to surface standard. There is approximately 60km of this road that is gravel and is being maintained in its current form i.e. gravel. It is important to note that the Eastern Cape Department of Transport appointed a contractor in November 2020 for re-gravel the first 30km and the contractor is still on site. Furthermore, there are long term plans to upgrade the remaining 30km as phase 2 of this project however, the actual implementation date of the project depends on budget availability.

What has he found to have been the impact of the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions on public transport;

Reply:

(1) Since the move to alert level 3 public transport operators operating shorter trips were allowed to carry 100% of the loading capacity of their vehicles whereas for longer trips the permissible loading capacity remained at 70%. These relaxations were coupled with other mitigating factors such as the mandatory wearing of masks and allowing for ventilation. To this end there has been no indication that public transport has been the main contributor in the spread of the virus. This, therefore, implies that measures put in place when the carrying capacity restrictions were relaxed yielded positive results.

(2) The fact that public transport has thus far not been detected as the main contributor to the spread of the virus, is to a large extent proof that operators are generally complying with specified regulations.
