Abstract: The built environment is the stage upon which we live out our daily lives: the built environment comprises urban design, land use, and the transportation system, and the patterns of human activity within this physical environment. Unfortunately, the physical environment often hinders patterns human activity, and none more than transportation systems. This is all the more regrettable as investment in the physical environment, especially in the infrastructure supporting that physical environment, is a significant component of public spending. Public infrastructure investment has been a key driver of recently improved investment rates (DTI 2010). Public investment of R404 billion was attracted over the 2006/7 – 2008/9 period and rose to R787 billion for the period 2009/10 – 2011/12. Much of this investment was for transportation upgrades and improvements, including Gautrain and national road improvements.
