SA’s infrastructure ambitions face capacity challenges

Engineering News, 15 April, 2014.

South Africa’s infrastructure investment and roll-out ambitions face a significant capacity challenge as local government experiences a constraint in the availability of architects, engineers, project managers and financial managers.

The nation’s pragmatic, but ambitious National Development Plan (NDP) targeted a fixed investment of 30% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030.

“Government has a good infrastructure plan on the table, but the bottom line is that they need more infrastructure specialists,” added Old Mutual head of infrastructural, developmental and environmental assets Jurie Swart.
