DA says one transport plan for 2010 is enough

The Democratic Alliance says two different agendas for the 2010 World Cup transports system will lead to chaos.

The DA said the Cape Town city planners have completed the strategic planning for public transport during 2010, and are now commencing with implementation as they are required to do as part of their "host city" contract with FIFA.

At the same time, MEC for Transport and Public Works Marius Fransman is also implementing a separate and totally different public transport agenda.

DA spokesperson on Transport, Robin Carlisle, said the DA is deeply concerned about the fact that the province continually interferes with the planning of 2010.Carlisle said the City of Cape Town already has an impressive transport strategy for 2010 but said at the same time the province, in the form of Marius Fransman, is doing his own thing.

“We have Mr. Fransman of the province and the city, setting up competing transport systems for Cape Town for 2010 and this is going to lead to chaos and this has to stop.”

Carlisle said the DA calls on the province to work with the city.
