EZULWINI-The Ezulwini Town Council (ETC) have evaluated ITML Consulting Engineers (Pty) ltd as the best company to prepare their comprehensive transport plan.

This was revealed by the Eswatini Public Procurement Regulatory Agency (ESPPRA) in their website. Comprehensive transportation system means a transportation project or a combination of transportation projects designated as a system by the Board of an urban transportation authority.


Its planning entails the creation of policies and goals, in addition to designs for the movement of goods and people between points in the future, whether this happens in the urban environment, rural district, or between urban areas. It cannot be successful if public input is not considered. Comprehensive planning takes into account additional costs, that often result from increased roadway capacity and the additional vehicle traffic it produces, and it takes into account additional benefits provided by TDM strategies that improve transport options.
A comprehensive mobility plan (CMP) of any city presents a strategy for short-, medium-, and long-term investments to improve accessibility and mobility for its residents.
