Business community informed about Wild Coast Road plans

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber was recently given a comprehensive overview on the progress made on the construction of the N2 Wild Coast Road.

This meeting formed part of SANRAL’s stakeholder relations programme to keep communities, organised business and labour and professional bodies informed about developments relating to the freeway in the Eastern Cape.

Craig McLachlan, the Project Manager and engineer, informed the chamber about the planned single-span bridges across the Msikaba and Mtentu River gorges, designed to be among the biggest bridges in Africa. He highlighted the impact the road will have on local economic development – especially tourism, agriculture and regional transportation – as well as SANRAL’s commitment to allocate important construction packages to local small and medium enterprises.
