Trusses to support the 1,500-ton glass roof for South Africa's Green Point Stadium are already in place, and fitting the roof will start next week, officials say. The roof, which will have a slight green tint, is expected to last 50 years. Roof construction is expected to be completed in September, and the completion date for the stadium is December. The glass roof is said to be the first in the world at a stadium.
