The construction of the road began during the 2016/17 financial year, with the completion date envisaged for the 2019/2020 financial year. The project’s value initially stood at R126.1 million.
In February 2019, Mxolisi Kaunda, the former MEC of KZN Transport, explained that the total value of the project’s budget would be divided among the companies working on the initiative. This would see 14 companies working on the first phase, and six on the second part of the project. Seven companies were hired for the third phase of the project, while the remaining last phases would be completed by three companies.
While the project took considerably longer than the initial 18 months, it is now ready for motorists.
Concluding, Premier Dube-Ncube said that the road was built at a cost of just over R127 million and created 427 job opportunities for the local community.
