Proposed projects include rail and material-handling infrastructure for a new railroad car rotary dumper in Saldanha; expansion of the container terminal in the Port of Cape Town; new iron ore train-loading facilities at Postmasburg; fire-suppression system upgrades at various locations; resurfacing of various berths in the Port of Cape Town; new-build port buildings; and numerous building upgrades and expansions.
