ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This article analyses the magnitude of the possible regional economic impacts that might stem from the proposed De Beers Pass Route (DBPR) project in South Africa. The regional income multiplier and income accelerator analysis are used to estimate the gross and net once-off increase in regional income during construction, and the recurring increases in regional income during road use. The difference between a cost–benefit analysis and a regional economic income analysis is indicated. To end, guiding pointers are supplied on the appropriate use of independent variables when applying the regional income multiplier-accelerator model.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: In hierdie artikel word die moontlike streekontwikkelingsimpakte wat uit die voorgestelde De Beerspas-padprojek in Suid-Afrika kan spruit, ontleed. ’n Werkswyse word getoon waardeur die bruto en netto eenmalige verhoging in streeksinkomste tydens konstruksie deur vermenigvuldiger-ontleding en die herhalende streeks-inkomste tydens padgebruik deur versneller-ontleding beraam kan word. Onderskeid word getref tussen ’n kostevoordeelontleding en ’n streeksekonomiese-inkomste-ontleding. Laastens word aanwysings verskaf oor die gepaste toepassing van onafhanklike veranderlikes by die berekening van die streeksinkomste-vermenigvuldiger en –versnellermodel.
