i.Africa rpeorts that a R5.4-billion, five-year expansion programme at Cape Town container terminal continues to transform South Africa’s second largest container facility into a modern facility that will be capable of handling nearly double its existing cargo capacity by 2012.
Major dredging, deepening and refurbishment work on the second of four berths is well underway and will be completed by May 2011. The first 100m of Berth 602 has been handed over recently to terminal operations.
