oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Transportation planning, implementation and operation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup
The Transportation Division of SAICE organised symposia in 2007, 2008 and 2009, linked to the annual South African Transport Conference (SATC ), at which information on the transportation planning, implementation and operation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup was presented. The presenters included representatives of central and provincial government, the 2010 host cities, as well as other affected parties such as SARCC (now PRASA ), ACSA , FIFA/LOC, SANRAL and the Bombela Consortium (Gautrain). The purpose of the symposia was mainly to disseminate information and to improve coordination between the role players. Contact was made with the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Transport and in both 2007 and 2008, a representative from this Committee opened the symposia. In 2007, a presentation was made to the Portfolio Committee. The 2009 symposium was held on 9 July 2009, i.e. after the completion of the Confederations Cup, and substantial feedback from this event was provided.
