Abstract

South African urban transportation planning has over the past decades focused on the development of high cost road-orientated capital facilities. A growing awareness has however arisen in recent years that each significant addition to the road system has added to the strain on available financial resources, has generated environmental impacts, and has often induced so much additional travel that the new facility has soon needed expanded capacity.
