Paper presented at the 21st Annual South African Transport Conference 15 - 18 July 2002 "Towards building capacity and accelerating delivery", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
The Operating Licences Strategies will only add value to the planning and management processes if it is based on reliable information, and the outcome is logical and easy to understand.

Of great importance is the regular monitoring and updating of the information system and, subsequently, the OLSs themselves. A possibility that might be considered is the establishment of a permanent survey team to gather information on a roving basis throughout the year, in stead of doing it sporadically as at present. Further innovation is clearly required to make the process as simple as
possible without sacrificing reliability and quality.
