The department is responsible for the following functions: Roads maintenance, Geographic information systems, PMU, EPWP. Huge allocation of the Municipality capital budget is being managed by the Directorate. Due to high demand from communities to have access to basic services, it creates a knock on effect to the directorate to ensure that it manages and delivers these services within the stipulated times. The directorate is pivotal in the fight against unemployment and poverty which is translated into contracts that benefit communities, small entrepreneurs and the private sector. As a directorate, it has to ensure that these funds benefit the community as a whole through good governance, accountability and transparency. Achieving the millennium development goals still remains our biggest challenge.
