(Status Quo of roads)

Un-Proclaimed Roads = Public roads not formally maintained by any Authority

challenges
Challenges
  • DoT’s mandate is limited to working on National Roads assets
  • DoT as the lead Department is not sufficiently resourced
  • Most existing roads have exceeded their design life
  • Construction and upgrading of rural access roads is not fast enough.
  • The critical requirement is a decision support system (pavement asset management system) at local and municipal level
  • Input into the pavement asset management system has to be ongoing
  • The overall level of road funding is lagging. This implies that backlogs are created rather than addressed.

Delivery model resolutions:

Progress

Department is developing a flagship national programme for the creation of jobs and maintenance of infrastructure. (SSP)

Up scaling of Zibambele across the country

Up scaling funds should be directed to access roads

Creations of more jobs to attract EPWP incentive funding

Provide infrastructure cost effectively

construction and maintenance summit resolutions and progress1
Construction and maintenance summit resolutions and progress….

Sustainable funding:

Progress

Restructuring of Infrastructure Grant to Provinces process now underway providing scope for funding and budgeting process reforms to be considered including measures to address efficiency of spending by authorities

Discussions with National Treasury re: DOT responsible for the Infrastructure Grant to Provinces which should enable establishment of a fully fledged national programme, maximising decent job creation

Engagement with National Treasury: developing a framework for DOT to take full responsibility for Infrastructure Grants for Provinces in order to address the resolutions

  • Dedicated funding from fuel levy
  • Budget increases and capacity need to be phased in.
  • Need to ensure allocated budgets are spent on roads
construction and maintenance summit resolutions and progress2
Construction and maintenance summit resolutions and progress….

Asset management system resolution

Progress/process to date

MOU with DBSA to deal with :

- Asset management system

- Funding model

- Sector skills

- Review of roll-out of ITPN’s

Implementation of NIMS -

Mechanism for enforcing through MINMEC and COTO to be developed

  • Development of an asset management framework
  • Need to ensure that portion of budget is allocated for Preventative Maintenance
    • Need to ensure that portion (at least 60%) of maintenance budgets are allocated for preventative maintenance (routine and periodic)
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Present allocations should be streamlined to achieve effectiveness
  • DoT to streamline a flagship programme:
    • Key regional economic routes / NATMAP
    • Rural transport development
    • Labour intensive roll-out
    • Road safety
  • DoT to develop implementation proposals with provinces to seek funding
  • DoT to refocus from policy development to implementation coordination
