The southeastern portion of Lesotho does not have an adequate road network. Communities living in this remote area of the 'Kingdom of the Sky' are cut off by rivers. When these rivers are in flood the only transport options are travelling by foot or by horse, and clinics can often only be reached by the 'flying doctor'. Recently the construction of five major bridges, which will form critical links in the area's road network, was initiated. Construction of these structures is close to completion. Aurecon is involved in the planning, design and construction supervision.
The final phase of the planned upgrading of the N2 freeway between the Cape Town International Airport and the City Centre required the upgrading of the Hospital Bend interchange. The area occupied by the interchange is very restricted and needed to be well utilised as the intention was to eliminate extensive weaving manoeuvres.
