N3 upgrades set to boost transport corridor


The provinces of KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and Gauteng are set to see considerable growth in the economy due to upgrades to the N3, which will take 8–10 years to complete.

This includes widening the N3, with four or five lanes in each direction, and reconfiguration of most major interchanges along the sections involved. Community development projects will provide extensive opportunities for generating economic growth and alleviating poverty.
