Phase one construction update

Construction for corridor C3 has started for the GO!Durban project and residents in the area can already see changes to the retaining wall on Beviss Road in front of Highway College. Further changes include the widening of the underpass on Beviss Road in preparation for the meridian Bus Rapid Transport lane.

In addition to these changes a new traffic light system is being installed at the intersection between Oppenheimer and Beviss road. These traffic lights became a necessity when the Principal of Highway College noted the high number of accidents in this area. These traffic lights aim to prevent any further incidents along this route.
