Repairs to Track between Port Shepstone and Izotsha.

There was not much repair work needed to the track. However some of the work was critical such as securing the approaches to the bridges and fixing sleepers on the bridges.

Strapping of the line at at sections was also important.  This emphasises the need for the statuary institutions to take over the responsibility for track and infra structure maintenance.
