Durban Nearly Ready for the World Cup

Officials in Durban are confident that the city's preparations for the WOrld Cup will be complete within the next few weeks, even the troubled cable car on the arch at the new Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Michael Sutcliffe, speaking to The Associated Press at the SportsAccord International Convention, said King Shaka International Airport will be open this weekend and the Moses Mabhida railway station just outside the new 70 000-seat stadium will be open in 10 days. All road upgrades should be done by the middle of May, he said.

"The infrastructure, it's all there," Sutcliffe said. "You are getting a vibe happening."

Even the cable car at the stadium should be ready to go this week.
