Clairwood: Advantages to operating in the industrial park
Both the specified industrial park and the surrounding industrial area have easy access to the N2 as well as the port of Durban by road, while the railway lines run parallel to the freeway and form the western boundary of the logistics park. Should the proposed dug-out container port become a reality, the logistics park will be the prime location for transit companies.
The facility is expected to create 18 900 jobs during the four-year construction period and more than 4 600 permanent jobs once fully operational from December 2020.
Controlled access, a secure perimeter and round-the-clock security will be coupled with truck lay-bys and staging areas, large yards and container stacking areas that property brokers believe will justify the higher rentals.
The South Durban Basin has a cross-section of commercial and industrial space interspersed with residential. The eThekwini Municipality has also invested in low-cost housing projects.
