Africa: Full steam ahead
Pinsent Masons is supporting South African law firm Ledwaba Mazwai in advising the Gauteng Provincial Government on a major rail link project. Geoff Roberts and Metja Ledwaba report on the venture and the PPP scene in South Africa
The Gautrain rail link project is being seen as an opportunity for South Africa to show its mettle in public-private partnership (PPP) and infrastructure projects. Gautrain consists of an 80km high-speed rail system linking Johannesburg, Tshwane (Pretoria) and Johannesburg International Airport. It is being procured using a PPP model and is the largest transportation infrastructure PPP project undertaken in South Africa (and Africa) to date. The private sector participation entails the design, construction, operation and maintenance and part-financing of the system.
