Paper presented at the 26th Annual Southern African Transport Conference 9 - 12 July 2007 "The challenges of implementing policy?", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa. ABSTRACT:In 1995 South Africa successfully hosted the Rugby World Cup. In 1996, Johannesburg successfully hosted the Africa Cup of Nations Soccer Tournament. In 2010, South Africa will host the biggest soccer tournament in the world, and once again it is expected to be a resounding success.
Taking a journey back 10 years to those events in Johannesburg, the first major international sporting events since re-admission, this paper reviews the substantial planning and on-the-ground traffic and transportation challenges faced then and lessons learnt, which challenges we will again face in 2010, however now with the benefit of experience, hindsight, better infrastructure and a willingness to succeed.
