Operation of Roads and Toll Roads: This report reviews the operation of South Africa’s road network of 747,000 kilometres. Funding for non-national roads is provided from the country’s tax base while national roads are funded by the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL), partly from the fiscus but also through self-acquired sources. Between 2010 and 2015, R75bn was budgeted by the Department of Transport (DoT) for road infrastructure, maintenance and upgrading with an additional R3bn budgeted for Expanded Public Works Programme access roads. The projected budget for 2015 to 2019 is R202bn.


Government Responses to Challenging Conditions : Toll roads are a response to South Africa’s need for an improved road system to expand the economy and to meet increased demands on existing infrastructure. During the 2013/14 reporting period, SANRAL spent R1.9bn on operating costs for about 1,857km of toll roads and capital expenditure of R1.1bn. SANRAL also introduced the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP), known as e-tolling, to upgrade and improve the national highways in Gauteng and introduced an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) consisting of cameras, electronic notice boards and other traffic management features. However e-tolling has caused widespread debate and civil disobedience under the banner of Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA), with the main objections relating to lack of transparency, cost and other better solutions available to Government. Ways of resolving the road maintenance backlog are the focus of the National Transport Masterplan (NATMAP) 2050. This recognises the poor state of roads, the fact that traffic growth has outstripped road extensions, and the contribution of heavy vehicle overloading to the poor conditions of many roads, all of which contribute to poor road safety in the country.



Report Coverage:

The Operation of Roads and Toll Roads focuses on the current state of the sector and the challenges faced by Government and stakeholders. The report also profiles nine industry players, including Bakwena Platinum Corridor Concessionaire (Pty) Ltd, which employs 122 people in the management and operation of its two toll roads, and the country’s largest employer in the sector, toll operator Tolcon Group (Pty) Ltd, which employs approximately 1,000 people in Limpopo, North West, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.
