Gauteng Infrastructure Indaba High level plans and challenges regarding infrastructure delivery in South Africa


Friday, 14 February 2014



Poverty, inequality and unemplymentThe New Growth Path sets a goal of 5 million new jobs by 2020; identifies structural problems in the economy to be overcome and points to opportunities in specific sectors and markets (“jobs drivers”)The 1st jobs driver is infrastructure: laying the basis for higher growth, inclusivity and job creationHowever, the pace of infrastructure development and spending on infrastructure is projected to fall from 9,1% of GDP currently to 8,1% of GDP (2013)Blockages include weak implementation capacity in parts of the state (with unspent monies) and poor project development planning Projects are not always strategic, integrated or aligned with national prioritiesPoor co-ordination slows projects and limits their impact


Response by Government

Establish a structure in 2011 to address the challenges through coordination, integration and

accelerated implementation: the Presidential Infrastructure Coordinating Commission (PICC)

Adopted a single common National Infrastructure Plan in that will be monitored and centrally driven

Identify who is responsible and hold them to account

Develop a twenty-year planning framework beyond one administration to avoid stop-start patterns


Moving from poor performance to integrated, multi-programme delivery

Poor planning at institutional level

Slow approval of projects

Late start to projectsPoor quality of executionHigh costs and monopoly pricingPoor industry reaction timePoor project controls (schedule, cost, quality, safety, health and environment)

Tender abuses and corruptionUnrealistic accelerationUnplanned and costly rework of designs or constructionNo political alignment with no champion

Permitting (e.g. EIA) rework or delaysLead time delaysSlow or non-payment of contractors

Improved programme co-ordination in state supported by project management and engineering skills

Align the National, Provincial and Local structures

Long term support for long term projects, especially regional projects

Predictable process for implementing projects including streamlined regulatory approvals

Strong policy direction for incentivisation of supplier development, localisation and private sector participation

Plan and build projects that promotes low life cycle costs

Standardised designs and delivery

Full life cycle costs recovered through user tariff and a committed funding strategy

Strengthening project controls and monitoring in government departments and state owned enterprises

Standardised and simple automated reporting to track project progress and performance

Early warning to address bottlenecks

Improve by



PICC Terms of referencePICC’s mandate is to ensure systematic selection, planning and monitoring of large projects and its Terms Of Reference include the objectives outlined below

An Infrastructure Book has been compiled, which contains more than


infrastructure projects across the country

An Infrastructure Plan with 18 Strategic Integrated Projects (SIPs) has been developed and adopted by Cabinet and the PICC

Infrastructure Book

Infrastructure is critical to:



Governance Structure4 PICC Council comprises Cabinet Ministers, Premiers and Executive Mayors and consider the performance dashboards for every SIP, Report into Cabinet, Recommend policy changes to Cabinet

PICC Manco comprises a number of Ministers to unblock challenges; monitor the development plan; ensure coordinated regulatory approvals and enablersPICC Secretariat is supported by Ministers, Deputy Ministers and oversee day-to-day work of technical teamPICC Technical Task Team comprises skills and competence drawn from public agencies and governmentIntergovernmental Forum Chair and SIP Coordinators - support the PICC through implementing SIPs Implementation Agencies are responsible for project implementation within budget, on time & within the required levels of quality

SIP 1: Unlocking the Northern Mineral Belt with Waterberg as the Catalyst

Project location


SA’s northern mineral belt in one of the poorest provinces (Limpopo) through key infrastructure provision in the Waterberg and

Steelpoort districts, initiating new energy and industrial development, shifting coal from road to rail in Mpumalanga and increasing rail capacity to Richards Bay whilst supporting regional integration

Investment in rail, water pipelines, energy generation and transmission infrastructure will


unlocking of rich mineral resources in Limpopo resulting in up to 98 000 direct jobs across the areas covered. Urban development in the Waterberg will be the first major post apartheid new urban centre and will be a “green” development project. Mining includes coal , platinum and other minerals for local use and export, hence the rail capacity is being extended to Mpumalanga power stations and for export

principally via Richards Bay and in future Maputo (via Swaziland link). The additional rail capacity will shift coal from road to rail in Mpumalanga with positive environmental and social benefits. Supportive logistics corridors will help to strengthen Mpumalanga’s economic development.
