Adrian Brislin, head of Traffic Engineering, at MPA Consulting Engineers, has maintained that the EcoMobility Festival is going well.
Brislin said because the traffic flows are tidal (contra flow lanes) the department hopes to get public transport to jump the traffic lane and use their own lane.
Public transport has grown and has now stabilised. We anticipated public transport demand to go up and we had to get JMPD to deal with this, so far it’s going well.— Adrian Brislin, head of Traffic Engineering, at MPA Consulting Engineers
He said that there are 10 park and ride sites across Johannesburg and when the festival started there were only 100 passengers.
By the end of that week there were 510 people using the facilities.The next week it increased to 600 and this week it has been over 600 everyday. We are happy and pleased.— Adrian Brislin, head of Traffic Engineering, at MPA Consulting Engineers,
Brislin added that he hopes more people will get out of their cars and use public transport.
