The project will see 33.7 km of the N2 national route between Mtunzini Toll Plaza and the Empangeni T-junction in northern KwaZulu-Natal upgraded from a single-carriageway road to a dual-carriageway freeway. This section of the N2, the last section of the important link between Durban and the North Coast towns of Empangeni and Richards Bay, has traffic volumes in excess of 12 000 vehicles per day. Sanral identified the need to improve capacity and strengthen the existing pavement. On 21 October 2011, Sanral appointed UWP to provide the consulting engineering services for this project, including the preliminary and detailed design, contract documentation, tender preparation and construction supervision.
