The National Transport Master Plan (NATMAP) (2015) and the National Land Transport Strategic Framework (NLTSF) (2015) are aligned with the development of transportation systems and objectives included in the National Development Plan (NDP) to address current transportation issues in South Africa. Transportation plans and development without supporting decision-making systems, remains only goals and objectives and does not promote sufficient, effective and affordable transport. Therefore the implementation process must include guiding principles, i.e., well defined measuring scales for monitoring and implementation. In addition, for the realisation of long-term targets, the implementation process must include relevant, well-defined, measurable and comparable annual targets for entities on the same level and these targets must be linked to a body and/or person responsible for data basis development and management and to be accountable for targets that are not met. The aim of this paper is to link the key performance indicators (KPIs) and long-term targets provided for in NATMAP and the NLTSF in terms of measurable and comparable annual targets. This will be done by defining applicable annual measures scales for each of the NATMAP and NLTSF KPIs in attaining the transportation targets provided for in these instruments. In the case of missing targets, targets will be scientifically determined and deduced.
