What effect do e-tolls have on jobs in South Africa
GFIP’s commitment to the development of new roads is an integral part of Gauteng’s future. They are a vital part of our progress to ensure economic growth.
ETC has the real facts that prove that without the GFIP implementation, the creation of new roads, that Gauteng risks becoming an enormous parking lot with traffic running at approximately 10km p/h within the next two decades.
Tolling was designed to realise the GFIP strategy.
In short, the GFIP aims to reduce traffic congestion, improve quality of life, enhance economic growth and improve the environment. Detail includes:
- Planned lanes: 201km
- Future upgrades: 423km
- Planned new routes: 158km
The benefits of GFIP include the following:
- Millions of travel hours saved
- Improved incident management
- Unlocking development opportunities
- Linking impoverished communities to economic hubs
Thus it’s a real fact that the GFIP, through all of the above, will create employment opportunities for all of our people, closer to home.
Isn’t this the dream for our country? To turn South Africa from being documented as the most unequal on earth to one that cares for its people and their future.
