How long will it take actinidia to cover a south-facing fence of approx 2.4m height? I know what the sellers give as expected growth but is this correct?



Once established, Actinidia shoots will grow 10 feet or so in a season. They need a support system to twine round. I staple Bean netting to the fence as it is invisible from a few feet away and cheap to buy. The Actinidia may take a while to obscure the fence, make sure you encourage some shoots to fill in low down or else all the growth will go up to the top.
