oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Past Master 17 : Sir John Coode : history and heritage
Several engineers have had a lasting influence on the well-being of Cape Town - one thinks of Stewart, Lloyd-Davies, Shand and Morris - but few have been as influential as Sir John Coode. It was his plan for the progressive development of the Table Bay Harbour complex which eventually led to the reclamation of the foreshore and thus doubled the effective area of the CBD. Coode also made a huge contribution to the development of the harbours at East London and Durban and had a hand in the design of most other South African ports.
