LUTS (Nsikazi Land Use & Transportation Study)

Mbombela has long been plagued by imbalances in the distribution of the employed population and the location of job opportunities, resulting in very long-distance commutes by the lower income residents of the area.  The LUTS study aimed to address these imbalances and studied the implementation of possible major land-use interventions in order to improve the distribution/location of residences and job opportunities and consequently reduce the negative impacts on the transportation systems in the area.  ENDECON was responsible for developing the Strategic Transportation Macro Model with the PTV VISUM transportation planning software suite.  The model was ultimately the primary tool used for testing land use and transportation interventions for 2020 and 2030 scenarios.
