"Seftel revealed that the transport loop would remain a permanent feature once the festival was completed. “It will take another six or seven months to construct the loop permanently and then there will be only one lane for private cars on those roads.” - See more at: http://www.tourismupdate.co.za/Home/Detail?articleId=93413&fb_ref=Default&fb_source=message#sthash.VPGQOpQl.dpuf http://www.tourismupdate.co.za/Home/Detail?articleId=93413&fb_ref=Default&fb_source=message Is this what people want or is this what the planners and control freaks want. Seftel is acting quite poepolish with her first world public transport plans. We all agree that well run public transport systems are great. Only two interlinked provisos: do the population density and type of travellers warrant a specific public transport action will the project be sustainable (profitable). I get the feeling that this is another social engineering experiment at the taxpayers expense (similar to the flagship uneconomical Rea Vaya and Gautrain projects).
