The MAY 2020 edition of SAICE’s monthly magazine “Civil Engineering” is available on-line.
We recommend the article on the “Perception of Gender, Mobility and Personal Safety: South Africa Moving Forward” authored by Marianne Vanderschuren, Sekadi Phayane and Alison Gwynne-Evans. The article is based on their paper which won an award at the 99th Annual Meeting of the United States Transport Research Board (TRB) in Washington DC earlier this year. Congratulations!

In the next article, Dr Malcolm Mitchell discusses missed opportunities and future potential in the public transport sector, stressing the need for a widespread change-orientated approach if effective and efficient public passenger transport in South Africa’s metropolitan areas are to meet the needs of the public. Food for thought.

Dr John Sampson continues to share useful traffic engineering advice for the practical design of priority controlled intersections in the third in a series of articles dealing with the practical design of intersections. The set considers every aspect of traffic engineering that affects intersection control devices, including daily traffic volume patterns, safety, capacity, delay, queues and levels of service.

We hope you enjoy the on-line magazine.

How should Transport Engineering Practitioners and Client Bodies undertake and assess Traffic Impact Studies during and post the COVID-19 lockdown period?
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on Traffic and Public Transportation volumes now and into the foreseeable future, transport related surveys which form the basis of any traffic or transport study will not provide realistic and representative data. This is a major dilemma for our members. SAICE Transport Division arranged this discussion share approaches and information amongst City Authorities and Traffic Engineering Professionals. We hope this will kickstart a platform where we work together and minimise the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to deliver appropriate traffic impact studies.
