Abstract: Whereas in a country such as South Africa some public sector authorities are able to practise more or less competent management of their infrastructure assets, government intervention and assistance is needed in respect of many other authorities especially in respect of those at local government level. The National Infrastructure Maintenance Strategy sets overarching national policy for sectorbased initiatives, and describes the framework for a coordinated programme of actions. Simultaneous infrastructure investment and maintenance that will result from this strategy will not only improve infrastructure performance and underpin services sustainability, but will also contribute significantly towards national and local economic growth and will add long term jobs. Countries that do not enjoy the comprehensive information set upon which the Strategy was founded, should nonetheless make the start with such a strategy where they can, and set themselves on a path of steadily improving information and practice.
