In a bid to speed up the implementation of infrastructure projects in South Africa Minister of Finance Enoch Godongwana has agreed to list infrastructure as a separate budget item. This, Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure, Patricia De Lille, explained means that there will be no need for strategic infrastructure projects to go through the Budget Facility for Infrastructure at National Treasury for approval, which will save time and speed up their implementation. Details of how funding will be made available is still being determined with options including having the funds as an appropriation with Treasury or having an allocation to the Development Bank of Southern Africa, ring-fenced for that purpose.
