The M4 starts on Durban's beachfront and heads north over the Umgeni River before ending at Ballito some 40 km away. A very popular tourist route, weekends see dozens of cyclists enjoying the ambience. Unfortunately, the section from Umhlanga to the Umdloti River was notorious for the poor condition of the road, and was full of potholes and cracks creating dangerous conditions, especially on the shoulder where the cyclists mainly ride. There were also many overhanging branches adding to the danger, and most of the side drains and guardrails were badly in need of refurbishment.
