A decision to move forward with a R1 billion infrastructure project is not made overnight – even if it is likely to aid in job creation and provide a positive economic spin-off for all tiers of the economy. It’s an extremely drawn out process of weighing up the risk versus return if the development funding comes from public coffers, but even more calculated if every cent is being put up by the private sector and the scale of the project is largely untested in the local market.
