Jeff RadebeThe Airports Company of SA (Acsa) has projected expenditure of R2,7bn for infrastructure improvement and expansion for the period 2002-2007, Acting Transport Minister Jeff Radebe said yesterday.

Radebe delivered the transport budget vote in Parliament on behalf of Transport Minister Dullah Omar, who has been sick. Radebe said Acsa's capital expenditure programme this financial year would amount to R600m.

The long-term programme would focus on improvements in terminal capacity, runways and taxiways, roads and parking, safety and security, and bulk infrastructure. Most of the expenditure would go to the Cape Town and Johannesburg international airports.

Earlier yesterday Radebe formally opened the new R850m domestic terminal at Johannesburg International Airport. He said the transport department was working with its provincial counterparts and other stakeholders on a major overload control infrastructure programme to deal with reckless overloading on the country's roads.

"It is based on the construction of a strategic network of traffic control centres and fixed weigh stations on major roads." supported by mobile weigh stations on alternative roads in the main freight corridors," he said.
