The M41/N2 interchange
Whether you live, work or visit Umhlanga, the M41/N2 interchange is a hot topic of discussion in KwaZulu-Natal. The big question is, when will it be complete? Every day you are bound to see queues of traffic coming in or out of Umhlanga, which is without a doubt the leading economic hub of KwaZulu-Natal. Not only is it home to Umhlanga Arch, there are other popular attractions including Gateway Theatre of Shopping, as well as Durban’s trendiest restaurants and bars.
It has been reported that around 40 000 vehicles pass through the M41/N2 interchange each day. It’s a huge game-changer for businesses and developments within the Cornubia/Mount Edgecombe area, as well as Umhlanga, as travelling in and out of these popular areas will become more free flowing. This project has taken over 5 years, with the finished product expected to be delivered as soon as March this year.
The interchange is expected to be the longest bridge and structure within South Africa boasting 947 metres. Doubling the number of lanes and allowing free flowing traffic, cutting down the amount of time travellers spend on the road. This inevitably will make it even easier to access Umhlanga Arch on a daily basis, whether you are a travelling businessman, a resident or an out-of-towner who can’t get enough of our retail high street.
