South Africa's government is setting aside R4 billion for maintenance and improve conditions on the N1 road between Kranskop and Makhado.

The property node along the N1 extending from the Buccleuch Interchange to the Samrand off-ramp in Gauteng is fast becoming the most sought after commercial real estate in the province, and possibly in SA.

Meanwhile, the N1 to Musina from Gauteng is one of the country’s strategic routes. It provides a gateway to Zimbabwe and the rest of the African continent. As a result, the  road carries high volumes of traffic, including trucks used for trans-border freight services.

Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says government plans to invest just above R4 billion in efforts to improve conditions on the N1 between Kranskop and Makhado in Limpopo.

Nzimande spoke recently at the launch of the festive season road safety campaign in Modimolle. Nzimande and officials from the province joined by religious leaders cleansed a portion of the N1 which is notorious for fatal crashes. Nzimande says future plans include the separation of traffic lanes.

”There is some more investments that are going to be made here in Limpopo to improve our roads, for instance we need to attend to the fact that the separation of the north bound and south bound carriage ways between Kranskop and Makhado will have to be done in future,” explains Nzimande.
