The port of Durban will be closed to all shipping for 36 hours on two separate occasions during September.

The purpose is to permit geotechnical drilling within the entrance channel in preparation for next year’s planned widening of the entrance channel.

The dates and times of the two closures are:

  • from 12.00 on 7 September until 24.00 on 8 September


  • from 12.00 on 14 September until 24.00 on 15 September.


  • SA Port Operations, operator of the Durban Container Terminal has meanwhile made arrangements that container ships will use the new deepwater berths D – G at the Point for laybye purposes to help reduce or even avoid any unnecessary delays to container handling.
