Comment on City of Cape Town Comprehensive Integrated Transport Plan 2023-2028
1 INTRODUCTION: AMBITIOUS GOALS NEED AMBITIOUS PLANS
Thank you for the invitation to comment on the City of Cape Town’s draft CITP for the five-year period 2023 to 2028. The 485-page document is wide-ranging and sets many ambitious goals for the City of Cape Town that we support.
However, robust policy ambitions are only achieved with robust, pragmatic implementation plans. In a resource-constrained environment this necessitates strategic prioritisation and inevitable trade-offs. Without these we run the risk of re-publishing ambitious, yet unachievable (even overwhelming) wishlists, without giving officials and implementing partners the tools to sequence projects and prioritise programmes for maximum impact.
