Excerpt of the ITP document:
Introduction to the ITP
The scope of the integrated transport plan submission is the central Breede River Valley, encompassing areas including De Wet and Breërivier in the north, to Brandvlei and Louwshoek in the south. All areas east of the Huguenot Tunnel to the Hex River Poort are included.
This includes the all important N1 corridor, main artery from the Cape to the north and the main business and financial hub of the region, Worcester. Importantly, Worcester is also a major transportation hub in the Western Cape interior. It also has a very large economic catchment area, making connectivity within the region of utmost importance to the overall economic sustainability of the region.
Worcester is also a centre that has missed out on the tourism boom, many other Western Cape towns have been able to capitalise on. The ITP will also attempt to address the transportation aspects contributing to Worcester and well as its satellite towns’ downfall when it comes to tourism potential.
The ITP submission will attempt to find solutions for a SANRAL (South African National Roads Agency Ltd.) problem; the proposed tolling of the N1 from Sandhills to the R300 (Brackenfell). The connectivity of the R60 and R43 in this region is also a major issue.
