Transnet port and rail upgrade, South Africa

For South Africa's national infrastructure owner and operator Transnet we provided program management, studies, and design for the $6.4 billion of 1,243 miles (2,000 kilometers) of ore railway lines, plus modernization and expansion of ports at Saldanha, Cape Town, East London, Durban, and Richards Bay.

Opportunity

The long-term expansion of South Africa’s mining operations depends on transport infrastructure that can handle longer, heavier freight trains, larger vessels, and faster loading.

Solution

Mott MacDonald helped develop South Africa's national infrastructure and provided program management to Transnet to help implement it.

As part of the Eastern Cape Infrastructure Joint Venture, we provide Transnet with engineering, procurement, and construction management services covering port infrastructure upgrades at Port Elizabeth, Ngqura, and East London.

Outcome

Infrastructure upgrades will help ensure a profitable future for South Africa's mining industry. The Port of Ngqura achieved the safety milestone of five million hours with no lost time injuries.
