Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium: 27 of 33

The good news is that Nelson Mandela Bay stadium is on track to meet its June 2009 deadline when it will host the British Lions. Construction at the stadium is reaching its final stages with roof girders being lifted into place at quite some pace. The roof consists of steel girders wrapped in a PTFE membrane and aluminium cladding, combining to form a spectacular landmark for the friendly city. 27 of the 33 girders which form the roof structure are now in place.

Landscaping and paving has also started around the stadium, with roads being closed and fences being moved to accommodate the earthworks.
