The Samrand Interchange on the Ben Schoeman Highway (N1) between Pretoria and Johannesburg was recently opened. Integrating the interchange with the existing Ultra City development required an underpass for Samrand Avenue beneath the N1. This had to be constructed without disrupting the traffic on the Ben Schoeman, which carries between 70 000 and 90 000 vehicles daily. The interchange, costing R35,5 million, breaks new ground as the developer, Samrand, has financed the construction . The most significant benefit is for businesses in the area, which will have direct access to their premises.
