Motorists travelling through Musina will have to wait a little longer to enjoy using the N1 ring road currently under construction around this busy border town.
The new anticipated completion date for the N1 Musina ring road is April 2019 if no further delays occur. The project was to be completed by November 2018, but is currently behind schedule for a variety of reasons, among them the extremely high temperatures, which influence the concrete production for structures, and delays experienced in service providers that need to relocate services such as electrical power lines and supply of materials.
The construction of the N1 ring road around Polokwane is still on schedule with an anticipated completion date of December 2018. According to SANRAL, the upgrading of the route from a 2-lane (1-lane per direction) single carriageway to a 4-lane (2-lanes per direction) divided dual carriageway will enhance the traffic capacity and the safety of the route for many years to come.
