Leipzig – It is very important for the South African Department of Transport to consult with the public and stakeholders regarding its roads policy, according to Abram Chego, the department’s director of rural and non-motorised transport.

“In South Africa we try our best to consult with the public as determined in our Constitution,” he said during a panel discussion at the 10th annual summit of the International Transport Forum (ITF).

“We talk to stakeholders, including business and NGOs. It is important to involve members of communities in the process.”
