Abstract

Transnet Group Capital (TGC) was appointed by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) to manage construction of a revetment at East London Foreshore in East London, South Africa. The revetment construction was initiated to halt a 40 m regression of the reclaimed land between the grain elevator and the sea. This area accommodates the access road to the terminus yard as well as the rail lines that serve the grain elevator.
