Abstract: This report reflects the labours of the research team at the CSIR and the drafting, reviewing and grading by the field experts at SAICE. It extends the start that was made five years ago and it is trusted that it improves upon the first IRC. In that report, skills shortages and lack of maintenance emerged as the two key themes across all sectors. These themes still pertain; however two new important themes have emerged, viz. holistic systems and sustainability. Infrastructure, once created, is unrelenting in its demand for maintenance and this demand will increase the longer it is ignored. Bold leadership and effective management are irreplaceable ingredients for successful and sustainable infrastructure provision.
