REVIEWING TRAFFIC PATTERNS THROUGH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN EXISTING PLANNING, FOR THE IMPROVED PLANNING OF TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

The COVID-19 pandemic had a marked impact on travel behaviour and resultant traffic patterns during 2020 and, it would appear, that this could continue into 2021. During 2020, questions were asked about the reliability of traffic counts and other surveys undertaken and how this traffic information should be used to derive reliable forecasts for infrastructure design purposes.

In response, the SAICE Transport Division is holding an on-line panel discussion where traffic monitoring statistics over the past year will be presented and discussed.<br><br>

Items to be discussed include:<br>
1. 2020 traffic patterns on urban freeway networks<br>
2. Traffic forecasting on inter-provincial road networks<br>
3. The use of 2020 traffic surveys<br>
4. Drivers for change in future traffic patterns.

<br><br>Panellists:
Justice Chauke – Traffic Engineer, SANRAL<br>
Johan Brink – Associate, Innovative Transport Solutions<br>
Alan Robinson – Traffic Engineer, SANRAL
