THE development of a waterfront at the Port Elizabeth Harbour has taken a giant step forward, with Transnet officially allocating a section of the harbour for leisure and recreation.
The move was confirmed this week by Port of Port Elizabeth manager Rajesh Dana.
It comes after two decades of public pressure and seven years of active lobbying by business and development bodies.
Now work on the waterfront could start by 2016.
Plans are already in the pipeline for the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) to issue a call to private businesses to develop a master plan for the precinct.
