Historic fig included in construction plans

The construction of GO!Durban, theIntegrated Rapid Public Transport Network (IRPTN) through New Germany, the initiative by the eThekwini Municipality to provide a public transport system for the citizens of Durban, is advancing well.

Part of the construction of this IRPTN requires the widening of Qashana Khuzwayo Road (formerly Shepstone Road), and the construction of a bus lane and station with a side walk. The widened road will be located close to an existing fig tree on the corner of Regent Street and Qashana Khuzwayo Road. This Natal Fig tree, with its aesthetic value, is a landmark tree that has been present in its current location for well over 60 years. It is a prominent feature to the area and well appreciated by local residents and business people.
