The Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) has published Port Development Framework Plans that stipulate how R13-billion will be invested in South Africa’s commercial seaports over the next five years.

With these investments, the TNPA aims to create capacity at the ports, as well as ensure the long-term sustainability of the port system.

The framework plans followed a robust public participation process and will be used to guide port infrastructure development in the short and long term.

The plans will be continuously reviewed to ensure they remain relevant and in line with international best practice.

TNPA aims, for example, to position the Port of Port Elizabeth as an automotive hub and to relocate manganese and liquid bulk facilities to the Port of Ngqura.

Additionally, the South Dunes liquid bulk terminal will be expanded to handle liquid and gas commodities at the Port of Richards Bay, while the Port of Durban will continue to serve as a regional container hub.

At the Port of Mossel Bay, TNPA plans to acquire strategic land parcels for expansion of the port, develop the Culemborg back-of-port logistics park at the Port of Cape Town and provide liquefied natural gas facilities at the Port of Saldanha Bay.

The plans can be found on the TNPA website.
