Intelligence Transfer Centre will host the 1st Annual Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for Infrastructure Projects | Infrastructure news

A massive rollout for infrastructure has been identified as a key intervention by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan for South Africa, which includes a smart city, new boarders and highway upgrades.

In his 2021 state of the nation address, the president said that government has developed an infrastructure investment project pipeline worth R340 billion in network industries such as energy, water, transport and telecommunications.  Some of these projects include: Lanseria Smart City, Mokolo and Crocodile River Project, Road Projects worth 19 billion, the construction and rehabilitation of the major highways, Student Housing Infrastructure and SA connect to rollout broadband to schools, hospitals, police stations and other government facilities.

Furthermore, the recent floods in Kwazulu Natal highlight the need for infrastructure recovery, improved drainage systems, strengthening of roads, storm water drainage and poorly-built housing.  Poor infrastructure was a main contributing factor to the scale of the flooding coupled with severe weather caused by climate change and the lack of emergency preparedness, these are some of the major challenges that South Africa is currently facing. Before the floods, the city revealed that it needed about R8 billion to repair the old infrastructure.  It’s cheaper to maintain infrastructure than to repair it and cheaper to repair than it is to replace it.

Intelligence Transfer Centre is hosting the 1st Annual Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for Infrastructure Projects on 12 & 13 October 2022 at Indaba Hotel, Fourways.

Experts in the field will provide case studies with the latest developments and innovation including solutions to any unique challenges businesses may face.
