What an amazing construction project to capture in longterm timelapse. The reconstruction and deepening of the Maydon Wharf Berths is quite something to see unfolding! The Durban Harbour, where these berths are located, are part of one of the oldest ports in South Africa.

Transnet Group Capital, executing this project on behalf of TNPA, completed work on both berths within the timeframe. Reconstruction commenced on 7 April 2014 and was completed by 2 March 2018.
This project has given new life and a safe environment for larger ships to berth. The newly built walls will now have a lifespan of about 50 years.

This R1.5-billion project was awarded to Stefanutti Stocks Axsys joint venture in 2014. The project scope involved demolition of paving, rail track work and services, construction of new steel sheet piled quay walls, demolition of existing piled crane beams, extraction of timber, concrete piles and a limited number of steel sheet piles and removal of the existing quay walls and capping beams.

Quick Facts:
- 800 Timber Piles removed
- 1198 Total Piles driven
- 400 Anchor Piles driven
- 16m Dredge depth

    From the Jemaa el-Fnaa square buzzing with life and mystic mosque towers of Marrakech, to Berber stone villages lost somewhere in high Atlas and moon-like Anti-Atlas sights, along with the Sahara desert and Erg Chigaga dunes - this trip has helped us rediscover a lost, but very vibrant world, which in a sense hasn’t changed for thousands of years.
