Following the recent budget speech by South African Finance Minister, Toti Mboweni, the transport sector alone has 15 gazetted projects worth R47bn and the South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) is developing 13 roads worth R19bn, which will create nearly 10 000 jobs during construction.
Co-located with KZN Construction Expo, Transport Evolution Africa Forum & Expo will give you direct access to the key authorities responsible for driving the region’s transport infrastructure projects. Engage with local and African authorities from across the continent and understand first-hand what their construction requirements are.

Transport CEO Forum: 30 November 2021
An exclusive gathering of African transport CEO’s. A safe space for discussion and problem solving for challenges executives face in their roles in running the ports and rail organisation within high political and economic expectations in a global competitive industry with aging or inefficient infrastructure. By invitation only.
As economic development grows and even starts to thrive on the African continent it becomes essential for infrastructure developments to keep pace. Road infrastructure is key to this economic progress and forms a necessary link to accommodate and expand trade through sea, rail and air channels. The ability of local, national and regional governments, as well as the private sector, to successfully construct and maintain roads has become paramount across the continent.
Roads Evolution provides the road construction industry in Africa with an interactive,
educational and networking platform to explore insights on the latest developments and technologies associated with the design, construction and maintenance of roads on the continent. The sessions will concentrate on new technologies as well as new projects that are the focus in the near future.
