Reasons for Infrastructure Deterioration

Following are the reasons for deterioration of infrastructure:

  • Infrastructure deteriorates due to under investment in public works programs; 

  • The lack of good management systems for infrastructure also results in decay of infrastructure; 

  • Failure to recognize the importance to the future economy of maintaining a sound physical infrastructure also declines the serviceability of civil infrastructure; 

  • Cut-backs that have slashed public-works budgets may result in collapse of old and aging infrastructure; 

  • Failure to replace the infrastructure as fast as it wears out; 

  • failure to realize that lack of physical infrastructure seriously impacts the level and types of services government can provide to their citizens; 

  • tendency by national, state, and local officials to defer the maintenance of public infrastructure; and 

  • increased costs to tax payers to repair and rebuild the obsolescent public infrastructure.
