Abstract: This paper is concerned with the road traffic congestion problems and de-congestion initiatives in the Greater Johannesburg Area (GJA). A rapid appraisal of the traffic congestion and de-congestion map and atlas of the GJA was conducted with the objective of advancing a pragmatic approach to transforming the problems into opportunities and seed through the deployment of transportation scientific knowledge and ideas into positive tangible outputs and deliverables. In this regard, an analysis of a sample of measures and instruments used to regulate road traffic and transport challenges in the GJA was undertaken. The major conclusion is that an integrated and comprehensive land, air and road based strategic transportation framework and perspective plan reflecting input from all stakeholders could lay the foundation on which an appropriate, responsive and sustainable congestion and de-congestion framework, mitigation and responsive mechanism can rest.
