Upgrading of the Umgeni Road Interchange was required to reduce traffic congestion on the busiest section of National Route 2 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. The South African National Roads Agency appointed Hatch Goba for the design and contract administration of this project, which was co-funded by the eThekwini Municipality. The construction contract was awarded to the Rumdel Cape / EXR / Mazcon Joint Venture. The site is surrounded by residential and commercial properties, the Umgeni River, the Inanda Road Interchange and services which include bulk water and wastewater pipelines, a Transnet gas pipeline, heavy and medium voltage electrical lines and telecommunication cables. These constraints, together with the need to minimise disruptions to the extremely high traffic volumes, presented major challenges for the design and construction of the interchange.
