Zoning in on Rail Transport: It’s Contribution to the Economy, and Skills development in the Sector

This October Transport Month, the Gautrain Management Agency in partnership with Sowetan hosted a dialogue on the importance of rail transport in Gauteng , its contribution to the economy, society, and the environment.

The 25-year Integrated Transport Masterplan vision for Gauteng is the planning of an integrated and efficient transport system that promotes sustainable economic growth, skills development and job creation. Rail transport is the backbone of an integrated transport system and contributes to economic and social development.

Watch this compelling dialogue where our experts discussed why rail transport is a significant contributor to the economy through its role in freight and passenger transportation, urban development, and real estate.
