The Need for an lnteqrated Pedestrian Management Model (IPMM) for the Sekhukhune District Municipalitv (SDM).The purpose of this research was to develop an lntegrated Pedestrian Management Model (IPMM) for the Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) in the Limpopo Province to promote pedestrian safety information obtained from a number of sources such as the Department of Transport, CSIR, NlMSS and MRC, the Roads and Transport Department of the Limpopo Province, and the SDM, all pointed to the pedestrian fatality problem in South Africa, in the Limpopo Province and also in the SDM. The road safety policies, strategies, programmes, manuals and pedestrian plans of the Department of Transport, Limpopo Province and SDM were taken as the point of departure in this study. Local studies conducted by the CSIR indicated that there is a need to develop the IPMM for the SDM to address the pedestrian casualties. The pedestrian casualty statistics collected in the SDM was also used as sources to prove the extent of the pedestrian casualties. Other documents
that highlighted the pedestrian safety problem were the Limpopo in Motion Strategy; the Road Traffic Management Strategy for Limpopo Province; the Pedestrian Safety Management Plan and Improvement Plan for the Dilokong Corridor at Tubatse and the lntegrated Transport Plan (ITP) 2004 for SDM
