Construction work on Dumisani Makhaye Drive (MR577) in between the Newlands Express Way and Inanda Road (M21) running through KwaMashu K Section and CastleHill, will begin on Wednesday 2 July 2014.
Contractors will start working on the fast lanes in both directions as they prepare the way for dedicated public transport lanes, which will eventually run down the middle of the MR577. While these lanes will be closed, one lane in each direction will still be operational. The road will be widened to accommodate two lanes in each direction.
Construction along this route will last until mid-2015. Some delays will be expected as drivers get used to the traffic flow without a fast lane.
The MR577 links KwaMashu with Pinetown and this forms part of the C3 Corridor of the new GO!Durban integrated rapid public transport network which is being developed in the eThekwini Municipality.
