In view of the present climate around the globe, mega infrastructure developments are considered to be key catalysts driving economic development and social upliftment and transformation within the world economies today. However, the complexity of megaproject development especially when it comes to infrastructural development is a like a dual edged sword, and in recent years, the delivery of many infrastructural projects have come under scathing attack for schedule slippages, huge cost overruns, and questions over real benefits to the economic viability and sustainability it proposes to bring to the countries future DDP and GNP. This study analysed megaproject schedule challenges in transnet capital projects (TCP) in South Africa. The study employed a survey, and quantitative data were collected using a closed ended questionnaire from 191 megaproject personnel. The objective of the study was to undertake the quantitative analysis to critically assess schedule challenges.
