Infrastructure Moving On Schedule in KwaZulu-Natal

Officials in KwaZulu-Natal are confident about the timely completion of local projects related to the World Cup -- including Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban and a new international airport in nearby La Mercy.

Addressing editors on the province’s readiness for the soccer tournament, Premier Sbu Ndebele said the 2010 projects were well on track.

This included the R6-billion Moses Mabhida Stadium, the new King Shaka International Airport and the Dube Tradeport in Durban’s La Mercy area.

Ndebele allayed fears that the stadium was going to be a white elephant after the World Cup.

"The stadium will not be a white elephant post 2010. The stadium will incorporate a museum and a multimedia centre which will tell the story of the Zulu people and the people of KwaZulu-Natal."
