The construction of Berth 208, a new additional bulk liquid berth, in the Port of Richards Bay, has been completed. This berth shares a border with the eChwebeni Natural Heritage Site (NHS), which is part of an original mangrove site that existed prior to the development of the port. The environmental impact assessment (EIA) for Berth 208 identified potential impacts in respect of this site, with specific concern for the expected increased shoreline erosion due to greater ship movement. The record of decision (RoD) recommended that a solution be found to address the ongoing erosion between the existing Berth 209 (and the newly commissioned adjacent Berth 208) and Spinach Point.
