“This will ensure the continued provision of additional traffic pointsmen and women alongside the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) in the city,” he said.

Mashaba said the JMPD will continue to conduct traffic management duties as part of its legislative mandate and ensure Joburg roads are easy and safe to travel on.

“The city has gone to great lengths to ensure any finalisation of a PPP contract is compliant with the relevant legislation and procurement policies.

“This legislation requires the city to ensure this service is subject to a competitive tender process on a regular basis.

“Historically, as was the case within the JMPD, the city has struggled with the timely management of contracts so as to ensure a smooth transition between the end of one contract and the commencement of another.

“I would like to assure residents their convenience and safety remains a top priority to our government,” he said.
