South African Environmental Affairs appointed CSIR and Sanbi to implement a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) to determine the path of the transmission corridor.
"These transmission corridor is the representative project of future transmission backbone network for South Africa till 2040. Transmission corridor is considered to be a comprehensive plan to support the transmission and distribution strategy 10 (SIP 10)", said by Marshall Mabin, the  project manager of grid infrastructure strategic environmental assessment at CSIR.

"The strategic importance of these transmission corridors lies in balancing the country's future generation and load demand. The strategic environmental assessment advocates the standardization of the power grid infrastructure development in the transmission corridor, which is based on the improvement of the power grid infrastructure, and is presented in the process of the faster and more efficient environment authorization and licensing process.." Mabin added.

The presidential infrastructure Coordination Committee believes SIP 10 is an important energy delivery result of South African national infrastructure, and is part of the national development plan.

These transmission corridors also helped reduce environmental limits and construction limits. Mabin added that the typical environment and construction limits affecting the development of the grid infrastructure.
