  • Hayes, G.; Venter, C. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Mode choice modelling is commonly done to estimate the patronage demand of the various available transport modes. Since the late 1990’s in South Africa, Stated Preference (SP) surveys and occasionally Revealed Preference ...
  • Maree, J.P.; Jenkins, K.; Bredenhann, S.; Molenaar, A. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    It is a rare practice in South Africa’s engineering industry to keep the existing asphalt intact and to construct a granular subbase and / or base above it. This study investigates such a pavement structure in order to ...
  • O'Connell, J.; Rampersad, A.; Lavelle, R. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Ageing of a seal or asphalt surfacing increases the stiffness of the layer, resulting in a decreased ability to resist cracking. Asphalt surface rejuvenators have been used traditionally as an economical maintenance technique ...
  • Heyns, G.; Luke, R. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    South Africans are very concerned about the state of transport in the country, ranking it as their 3rd highest priority after education and health. This paper reports the results from four years of the Institute of Transport ...
  • Kgwedi, R.; Krygsman, S. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    In South Africa the minibus-taxi industry is the most frequent, available and affordable mode of transport, and is a critical pillar of the transport sector, with approximately 65% market share. Stellenbosch experiences ...
  • Hayes, G.; Venter, C. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Transit assignment has become an important component of transportation modelling as planners seek to evaluate the passenger demand and fare revenues for improvements to existing and new transit schemes. Transit assignment ...
  • O'Connell, J.; Steyn, W.J. vd M. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The stiffness of an asphalt layer is an important characteristic affecting the performance of the layer. This stiffness is affected by temperature and time, as the bituminous component of the asphalt layer ages. As the ...
  • Wall, K.; Rust, C. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The purpose of the “report cards” of the condition of engineering infrastructure in South Africa, the product of cooperation between the CSIR and SAICE, have been to draw the attention of government, and of the public at ...
  • Aropet, R. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Transportation is an integral part of the development of any country. Against the backdrop of rapid urbanisation and lack of resources, African countries face an uphill battle to find viable transport solutions to tackle ...
  • Ambunda, R. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Public transportation is a generic term used to describe the family of transit services available to urban and rural residents. Thus, it is not necessarily a single mode but more often a variety of traditional and innovative ...
  • Schalekamp, H.; Mclaren, M.; Behrens, R. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    As in many developing countries, in South Africa unscheduled paratransit services dominate urban public transport. Despite the resulting scale of fare revenue, the majority of the country’s minibus-taxis operate as cash-only ...
  • Henderson, M.; Van Zyl, G. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The Western Cape has a large network of 25 300 km of unpaved roads. The unpaved road network is managed within the framework of the Unpaved Road Maintenance System with the assistance of five District Municipalities. The ...
  • De Jongh, F.; Bruwer, M. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Transport and traffic movement is complex and ever-changing. The movement of people and the means by which they travel are directly influenced by the transportation systems available to them. Engineers have the responsibility ...
  • Krogscheepers, C.; Watters, M.; Tichauer, C.; Van Renssen, F.; Matthee, G. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The use of the modern roundabout in South Africa as an alternative form of intersection control is gaining popularity with road authorities. There are however groups within the road user fraternity, and road authorities, ...
  • Naude, L.; Velasco, M.; Mokwena, O.; Nicks, C. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Three “low-carbon challenges” were held, in Tshwane and Johannesburg in 2015, and Cape Town during 2016. In each city, teams of racers traversed a route using non-motorised, public, paratransit or electric transport, in ...
  • Coetzee, J.; Wessels, G.; Brand, M. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The City of Tshwane implemented an Urban Traffic Control (UTC) system as part of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, appropriately named A Re Yeng. The first phases of the BRT route extend through the Tshwane CBD up to ...
  • Joubert, A. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    The presentation will involve highlighting several practical problems through means of slides and discussion: The effect of the raised central island at single lane roundabouts on large trucks. The slowing down of high ...
  • Scheepers, J.; Venter, C. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    Worldwide, parking provision is required at minimum rates typically prescribed by municipal ordinances or in national policy documents. Litman (2011) argues that inherent problems with minimum parking requirements, their ...
  • Venter, K. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    As part of an ongoing effort to explore driver behaviour in South Africa, this research investigates non-motorised transport users as an element of risk in the driving environment from a driver perspective. This research ...
  • Onderwater, P.; Kishoon, A. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2017)
    This paper investigates the different influence factors for passenger train use. These factors have been clustered into 3 groups: 1. Socio-economic aspects: population and economic growth; 2. Internal train system aspects: ...
