national infrastructure maintenance strategy
Alongside accelerated delivery of new infrastructure government has identified maintenance of existing infrastructure as a priority. This is crucial to ensuring that old infrastructure remains available to support service delivery.
There are many challenges affecting maintenance of state assets, including capacity and planning at various levels of government. The National Infrastructure maintenance Strategy developed jointly by the cidb, the Department of Public Works and CSIR maps out a programme of action to promote cooperation and improve the levels of maintenance of state assets. It also aims to unlock the huge potential of the maintenance industry to create jobs, support skills development and contribute to the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa (ASGISA).
