   April 19, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

The building of the new ZAR 200 million (USD 17 million) cruise terminal in Durban is due to set the port city and KwaZulu-Natal to maximise the share of South Africa from the growing global cruise industry.

TNPA (Transnet National Ports Authority) and KCT (KwaZulu Cruise Terminal) signed on the agreement which will see the delivery of the facility at Port of Durban by 2020, October.

The detailed design phase has commenced and is expected to be finished by the end of 2018. Then it will be followed by an 18-month building phase from January 2019 through July 2020 and the cruise terminal is due to start operations in October 2020 kicking off 2020-2021 season.

KwaZulu Cruise Terminal was announced in 2017 as the preferred bidder for the concession project which is for 25 years.

The rise of a much-needed new cruise terminal for Durban is expected to see new technologies implemented as well as tourism numbers boosted for both Durban and South Africa.
