Has anyone else ever heard of this act and did it definitely get enacted (not just a bill that was rejected)?The National Land Transport Act of 2009
Please tell me I understood this wrong. They plan to toll the roads but say it is "impossible to know" what the project will actually cost?!?!?!Loxton said Sanral was not being deceitful as to cost breakdowns of the project.
It was simply “impossible to know” at this stage, he said.
Take initial estimated amount. Add a zero. Triple it. The zero you need for general incompetence & waste. The tripling is because Mercs are fckin expensive. Big projects means lots of Merc need buying.Please tell me I understood this wrong. They plan to toll the roads but say it is "impossible to know" what the project will actually cost?!?!?!
Oh. My. Word. :wtf:
The Act is very real. But people outside the Transport Management sphere do not know of its existence. The City of Cape Town formed a new entity called "Transport for Cape Town" (TCT) that will oversee ALL land transport matters, incl Rail, in the City boundaries to meet the requirements of the NLTA (Act). Those driving this legal process, mostly politicians, may not be so clued up about this, bit I did inform Brett Herron, Mayco Member for Transport, at the City about this last night. OUTA, and others should look into this. The Act spells out who can do what within municipal boundaries, and SANRAL has no more authority to MANAGE OPERATIONS of traffic/transport on roads within municipal boundaries, even when a road belongs to them. The must maintain that road if it is theirs but all operation on top of it can only be done by the City, unless the City in writing gives SANRAL authority to do so (delicate powers).Has anyone else ever heard of this act and did it definitely get enacted (not just a bill that was rejected)?
I don't doubt your post, but there has to be a reason that it has not been used by OUTA before now to squash SANRAL's etrolling dreams.
