The City of Windhoek (CoW) is rapidly growing and aims to further improve its transport system by establishing an integrated system, where the modes are intelligently combined to form a sustainable transport system that satisfies the needs of all citizens and ensures sustainability in the long run.
As a first step towards a more sustainable transport system, a Master Plan is to be established. For the CoW, this approach for the first time aims at developing a Master Plan going beyond road transport by including public transport, non-motorized modes and even by developing proposals for future integrated land use planning schemes.
Consequently, the overall objective of the project is as follows:
A structured sustainable urban transport master plan is generated, which allows decision makers to develop an affordable, accessible, attractive and efficient public transport and non-motorized transport system for the next 20 years, including strategies and actions needed to implement the plan, benchmarked with urban transport systems in the world and set a new trend in itself.
The indicator defined measuring the achievement of this overall objective is that the Master Plan is available in May 2013 on broad consensus by the relevant stakeholders and coordinated and approved by the counterparts in the Ministry of Works and Transport (MWT) and CoW.
