Huguenot tunnel to become two-directional

For over 33 years the Huguenot Tunnel has served more than 100 million road users. SANRAL implemented much-needed upgrades to the south bore, and is set to upgrade the north bore, which will involve bringing a second tunnel online. This will ultimately result in the Western Cape’s first two-directional tunnel, which will be on par with some of the world’s safest and most advanced road tunnels. It is estimated that this R2.5 billion project will take 5–7 years to complete.
