The longest bridge since the independence of Namibia in 1990 is set to be completed by April 2014, connecting the Husab Uranium Mine with the outside world. This new bridge-over-river is located in the Khan River Valley approximately 14 km south of the B2 main road leading to Swakopmund, and about 7 km north of the proposed mine on a route that winds partly through the Welwitchia plains of the Namib Naukluft Park. This 22 km stretch of surfaced road will connect the new mine with the Namibian road network, and, with its unique moon landscapes, promises to be one of the most picturesque routes within Namibia once completed.
