Construction has started on record-setting Mtentu Bridge

The Mtentu mega-bridge, part of the N2 Wild Coast Road flagship project, is under construction. It includes upgrades to an 18km provincial road to link the future Mkhambati Interchange to the Flagstaff-Holy Cross road, providing a direct link between the future N2 and the town of Flagstaff. The project has a contract participation goal of 4% for local labour. Three community development projects of approximately R50 million apiece will each train and mentor 10 local Grade 1 SMMEs and construct community access roads in/between Makamela, Baleni-Jama and Mdatya-Xolobeni. Over 100 local residents will be employed on each of these.
