When we build inner city roads, we simply move one bottleneck from one place to another.

Dr Lisa Kane, Honorary research associate at UCT's Centre for Transport Studies

You're kind of playing a game of shifting bottlenecks around when this kind of road investment is done.

Dr Lisa Kane, Honorary research associate at UCT's Centre for Transport Studies

Dr Kane says there is limited information to make deductions about the winning bid for the Foreshore project.

I think it's too premature to say because we have so little information.

Dr Lisa Kane, Honorary research associate at UCT's Centre for Transport Studies

I have queries and problem with the proposal, but there's very little information to go on right now.
