The mission of the RSR is ‘to oversee and promote safe railway operations through appropriate support, monitoring and enforcement guided by an enabling regulatory framework’.  The RSR’s mission must always be viewed against the Department of Transport’s vision of “Transport, the heartbeat of South Africa’s economic growth and social development.” Safe railway operations are vital to the national economy and therefore critical to the sustainability of our freight logistics and public transport system. The RSR’s interventions flow from government’s objective of ensuring the provision of a safe, affordable, accessible and reliable transport system.
 
The establishment of the Railway Safety Regulator constitutes a commitment by the South African government to improve safety in the country’s railways in a systematic and sustainable manner. It is equally an acknowledgement of the critical role railways continue to play in the overall transportation system in the country. The allocation of R18 billion over the medium term to fund passenger rail is the clearest indication of this commitment. Similarly, Transnet Freight Rail will have injected capital to the value of R35 billion by 2012, largely focusing on the rehabilitation and renewal programme for rolling stock and infrastructure.
