Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Finance

With reference to the R1 billion budgeted for the 2018-19 financial year towards the building of the Mtentu and Msikaba bridges, why will the National Treasury only allocate the specified amount in the 2019-20 financial year?

Reply:

The South African National Roads Agency is expected to receive transfers of R7.9 billion in 2018/19, R10.3 billion in 2019/20 and R10.9 billion in 2020/21 from the Department of Transport to fund its capital programme. The Agency has already provided for the project in the baseline and the additional R1 billion in 2019/20 and R1.1 billion in 2020/21 supplements the project funding provided for in the Agency’s capital transfers.
