The location of the Warwick Triangle in Durban, with its historic market for the informal economy, caused tremendous conflict between pedestrians and vehicles. It is a transportation hub and a major gateway to the Durban central area. Every day hundreds of thousands of pedestrians and traders, and more than a 100 000 vehicles entered and left the Warwick area, resulting in serious congestion and an alarming accident rate (of which more than 70% were pedestrian related). The 2010 FIFA World Cup provided an opportunity for the city to transform the Warwick Junction into a world-class transfer facility.
