Abstract

Through its , the South African Institution of Civil Engineering honours projects that masterfully capture the essence of civil engineering and that, at the same time, engage broader socio-economic enhancement imperatives through infrastructure development.


In 2011 the recognition goes to the mammoth, engineering-intensive Gautrain Project which provides a rapid rail link between Johannesburg, Tshwane (Pretoria) and the OR Tambo International Airport. The completion of the airport link in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup contributed hugely to South Africa's image as a world-class destination.
