ABSTRACT:The proposed National Transport Master Plan 2005-2050 (NATMAP 2050) aims to develop a dynamic; long term; and sustainable land use/multi-modal transportation systems framework for the development of networks infrastructure facilities; interchange terminal facilities and service delivery that shall be •demand responsive to national/provincial/district and /or any socio-economic growth strategy, and/or any sectoral integrated spatial development plan; and •a coordinated implementation schedule and/or action agenda for the whole country; and/or specific national and provincial spatial development corridors and regions until 2050.

It is an action plan.
This Project is to; amongst many issues; identify, examine, assess, and propose;
• various land use/spatial development models to sustain investment in the state-of-the-art multi-modal urban/rural transportation systems;•cost effective models for an integrated public/private sector corridor/regional economic development;• a vision, goals and objectives for each of the national development corridors and/or economic regions;
• integrated growth and development strategies for each development corridor and/or region of national importance;
• potential economic development projects and compile a comprehensive economic status map of national importance;• an integrated multi-modal infrastructure facilities development plan; •cost effective policies promulgation, and/or changes to enhance the coordination of transportation services;
•cost effective institutional arrangements and a model for efficient and effective investment, planning, implementation, operations, maintenance, and monitoring; and
• an action agenda for the various key stakeholders, based on the preferred development strategy and integrated development plan.
