In April 2010, the South African Minister of Transport proposed a Johannesburg–Durban high-speed rail system.[1] There are concerns about the cost and engineering difficulty of the project,[2] which would have to cross the Drakensberg mountains.[3] but the minister repeated proposals in June 2010. The project is expected to cost U$30 billion,[4] but there are hopes that alternative funding sources will be available.[5] China Railway Group says it is in talks with the South African government for construction contracts.[6]
