Visual assessments of current pavement conditions in the stack areas of Berth 203-205 at the Durban Container Terminal-Pier 2
MetadataShow full item record
The Durban Container Terminal is currently the biggest and busiest container terminal in Africa and handles about 2.7-million TEUs a year. DCT handles approx. 70% of South Africa’s containers and generates 60% of South Africa’s revenue (Port of Durban, 2014). The Port of Durban is currently assessing and introducing infrastructure to accommodate the rapid increase in export and import in the container terminal. The concern is whether or not current pavements will accommodate the weight of the new infrastructure without failing. Assessment of the current pavement condition in the container stack areas of Berth 203-205 at Pier 2 at the Durban Container Terminal was carried out and is presented in this paper. The results were analyzed and conclusions, as well as recommendations were made.
