The Western Freeway is the 'gateway' for traffic entering the city of Durban from the N2 north and south, as well as the N3 from the west. The client, Ethekwini Municipality Roads Provision, is well aware of the strategic importance of the Western Freeway, which is the busiest road in KwaZulu-Natal, carrying more than 120 000 vehicles daily. The Western freeway was constructed in the early 1970s and had reached a stage when the road pavement was in dire need of heavy rehabilitation.
