Reading Time 2 minute read Reading Level Easy


The Infrastructure Development Act 23 of 2014 (the “Infrastructure Development Act”) was promulgated and came into effect on 10 July 2014.


On 23 June 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa hosted the Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium at which symposium the Minister of Public Works, Patricia De Lille, announced that 55 infrastructure projects across 6 sectors had been earmarked as strategic integrated projects (“Strategic Integrated Projects”) to be implemented under the auspices of the Infrastructure Development Act and that a list of these qualifying Strategic Integrated Projects would be gazetted in due course.


The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure has on Friday 24 July 2020, under and in terms of Government Notice No. 812 published the list of projects designated by the Presidential Infrastructure Coordinating Commission as Strategic Integrated Projects under the Infrastructure Development Act. The Strategic Integrated Projects are listed under the following headings:


  1. Strategic Integrated Project No 19: Water and Sanitation;
  2. Strategic Integrated Project No 20: Energy;
  3. Strategic Integrated Project No 21: Transport;
  4. Strategic Integrated Project No 22: Digital Infrastructure ;
  5. Strategic Integrated Project No 23: Agriculture and Agro-processing;
  6. Strategic Integrated Project No 24: Human Settlements;
