Inappropriate Solutions

During a recent radio debate I put it to SANRAL CEO, Nazir Alli, that the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) had not been strategically considered from the point of view of firstly maximising the efficiency of road-based public transport, rather than spending money we don’t have on new roads
