Government Admits Fault in Lack of Public Transport to New Durban Airport

Durban has a new airport, but unless you have a car, it'll be tough to reach. The government has acknowledged mistakes in planning the new King Shaka airport 30km outside of Durban without including public transport links to and from the city.

The oversight was the result of silo planning without proper consultation. It had been assumed that everyone in Durban possessed a car, [Transport deputy director-general Lanfranc Situma] said during the presentation of the Department of Transport’s national transport master plan up to 2050.
