The City warns Seli 1 vessel be removed by June
2 February 2012
The City of Cape Town has warned that the wreck of the Seli 1 vessel must be removed before winter to prevent the procedures costs from skyrocketing.
The City is planning to declare an inter-government dispute after the national departments of transport and environmental affairs failed to attend meetings.
The Seli 1 ran aground in Bloubergstrand in September 2009.
The City’s JP Smith said that costs would exceed R30 million if the wreckage is not removed by June this year.
He added that there are time frames and in winter it will take longer to remove it and push up the costs.
