The provision of transport is intrinsic to the creation of vibrant, livable, sustainable cities and communities. The real purpose of transport planning is the provision of access to work, social facilities such as education, hospitals, including goods and services.
As we construct and maintain roads, provide access, facilitate integrated public transport provision, advocate the safety of all road users, we firmly believe in working together with the wider community of KwaZulu-Natal to realize our departmental vision of, Prosperity through Mobility.
As the Department of Transport we need to look at the optimal ways of mass transport of people especially for the marginalised communities. We are therefore working with municipalities in developing Integrated Rapid Public Transport Networks, which include Bus Rapid Transport and Rail Rapid Transport systems while integrating transport systems to encourage seamless transport.
