TNPA gives access to Durbanís North Pier for visit of Queen Mary 2

Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) has agreed to open the gates to the new North Pier at the entrance channel to Durban harbour to enable members of the public to watch the arrival and departure of the Cunard passenger ship QUEEN MARY 2 on Tuesday, 23 March 2010.

Number 2 Gate will be opened between 05h30 and 07h30 on the morning of the visit, and again later that day between the hours of 17h30 and 19h30. The public will be able to watch the ship enter or leave the channel from close up and will also have access to Festival Island (next to the Maritime Museum) and Wilsonís Wharf which provide excellent vantage points to see the 150,000-gross ton ship while she visits Durban.

Queen Mary 2 is expected to enter Durban harbour at 6am and will sail that evening at 6pm.

The only stipulation being imposed by the TNPA is that no liquor will be allowed onto the North Pier, which remains a construction site until the 31 March.

Thousands of people are expected to visit the harbour precinct during the day to see the great ship on her maiden visit to Durban and South Africa.
