Hi Gys,

I know this is a bass site but some things must be shared. I was privileged enough to be one of the first persons (member of the public) to have gone up onto the top of the arch of the newly build soccer stadium in Durban – Moses Mabhida Stadium.

We, Master Builders KZN, provided a safety consulting service for the stadium for the past two years and have been visited the site on a regular basis. Last week was our last site visit and we managed not only to get some great photos of this magnificent stadium but also managed to go up onto the top of the arch with the cable car.

The construction is completed (ahead of schedule) and it was only the German Company that was busy with the cable car commissioning. I know the engineer that was in charge of the construction of the 107m high arch and he let us on the cable car. Very impressive indeed!

Man that's hugely impressive, I had no idea a BFSA member was so intimately involved, that's a big pat on the back Norkie. It's great that South African companies can deliver this sort of result, lets just hope that the soccer tournament itself goes off as smoothly.

As for CC finals at the new stadium you are spot on Ruff Riem. The Sharks or rather the NRU is not moving over. They told the Municipality to go jump in the sea when they were told to move to the new stadium.

As for no CC finals being played at the old stadiium for the next couple of years ........ eish boet moet nie te gou praat nie! Jy weet hoekom Blou Bull mans supporters se monde so groot is en hull vrouens sin so klein is ne? :blue-question: :blue-biggrin:
