South Africa Is Just Crazy About Transport Infrastructure
by Brian Phillips · November 26, 2008
Two numbers in the news today:
(1) South Africa has announced a $17.5 billion investment (R170 billion) in transportation for the 2010 World Cup.
(2) South Africa is expecting around 450,000 visitors for the same World Cup.
If these numbers are correct, South Africa is planning to spend nearly 40,000 US dollars on transportation for every person who visits the country during the tournament. I hope the improvements will be useful after it ends. . .
