With less than nine months to 2010 World Cup kick-off, construction of the new Cape Town stadium is nearing completion, as contractors are busy with the final touches to what could be one of the most impressive stadia in the world.
“Work is also underway on the internal architectural finishes such as painting, ceilings, doors and locks,” said City spokesperson Nick Whiteley.
Most of the inside equipment has been installed on five of the six levels.
“We expect the stadium to be completed by December 14 this year,” said Whiteley.
The raised Green Point traffic circle is almost complete and is already taking traffic on the incoming lane to the city centre.
Cape Town will host eight World Cup matches, most of them at night, including one semi-final.
