Midrand - Government has neglected
building infrastructure for walkers and cyclists and this must
change, an environmental affairs official said on Friday.
"(The) interests of non-motorised
travellers tend to be systematically neglected in investment, network
management and infrastructure," said director general Nosipho
"What does this indicate? We are
not responsive to the needs of our citizens," she said.
Ngcaba was speaking at the Green Cities
conference at Gallagher Estate in Midrand.
She said that government would seek to
invest in non-motorised transport that would provide quality, safe
travel to cyclists and walkers.
