The City of Cape Town unveiled two major plans to ease congestion on the city’s roads. The plans include construction on the N1, worth R487 million, which has already begun.
And the other plan deals with heavy duty trucks on the city's roads.
A draft Freight Management Strategy has been released for public comment, to ensure that freight transport within Cape Town is safe and efficient.
It is aimed at ensuring that freight operators comply with regulations and dealing with traffic congestion and other issues on the city's major routes.
CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson spoke to Jaco Cork, Operations Manager for AM Trucking about the city's plans and the effects the draft freight proposal could have on their business.
