Paper presented at the 33rd Annual Southern African Transport Conference 7-10 July 2014 "Leading Transport into the Future", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
Stop/Go systems on our roads due to construction works is a cause of great frustration to
many motorists, but also comes with a price tag. The purpose of this paper is to determine
the macro-economic cost of Stop/Go systems to our economy. This paper further
investigates alternative traffic accommodation options to Stop/Go systems as well as the
point where these alternatives become financially viable on a macro-economic scale.
Alternative traffic accommodation options with regards to reseal as well as the
reconstruction of roads are looked at and the advantages and disadvantages of these
options are weighed up against one another. The requirements for the successful
implementation of these alternatives are also presented.
