The City of Cape Town's road network is one of its most important assets. It requires ongoing maintenance and improvements to meet the needs of public and private transport vehicles. A quality road network is essential for economic growth, job creation and to meet the social needs of city's residents and visitors.
A good road network plays an important role in managing congestion together with travel demand management measures. Travel demand management encourages drivers and passengers to change their travel habits where possible to make more efficient travel choices particularly in the busy weekday peak periods.
