Abstract

NATMAP (2050) was approved by the South African Government in 2011. The focus of the project is to ensure that by 2050 transportation development will meet the needs of freight and passenger customers; to ensure accessible, affordable, safe, frequent, high quality, reliable, efficient and seamless transport operations and infrastructure provision and development. The project makes provision for a process of continued upgrading, innovative, flexible, economically and environmentally sustainable transportation that will support and enable government strategies, growth, development, redistribution, employment and social integration within the national spatial system. The project endeavours to address this distorted land use and transportation situation provincially and nationally. The research methodology includes an assessment of the Action Agenda as included in the NATMAP (2050) source documents and its supporting methodologies and strategic approaches. The research results are reported on from a sustainable transportation and strategic perspective. It will include an in depth analysis of the strategies formulated, prioritization model, implementation projects and strategic development programme. The improvement of special intervention transportation development focuses is included as to enhance sustainable transport development within all spatial systems. Keywords: strategic transportation planning, land use and transportation integration, project prioritisation.
