Greater Gaborone Multimodal Transportation Study

The Government of Botswana is engaged in a strategic partnership with the World Bank to improve Botswana’s competitiveness in the global market through better planning and management of our transport systems.

One of the many activities included in the partnership is to undertake a detailed study of transport in Greater Gaborone. The study which started in October 2009 aims to recommend immediate solutions that will solve chronic traffic congestion and improve safety. But of equal importance the study will prepare plans for the development of transport up to 2035 when it is estimated that the population of the city region will exceed 500,000.

The study is spearheaded by the Ministry of Transport and Communications and managed by the Roads Department in association with other stakeholders, particularly the Gaborone City Council.

In keeping with government obligations for public consultation a workshop is planned for the 5th and 6th October 2010 in Gaborone. The purpose of the workshop is to consult with all stakeholders on the above study.

Members of the Public are invited to submit their written views and opinions on the transport situation in the capital city and immediate surrounding areas and importantly to suggest ways in which transport could be improved.

Invited delegates are requested to confirm attendance by phoning Doreen Moapare, the Principal Public Relations Officer at Roads Department before 15:00hrs on Friday 24th September 2010 at 74334136 or 3913511.
