Built by a joint-venture between Devru Construction and the South African National Roads Agency, this awesome structure has recently been completed spanning the N2 freeway between the Gateway Shopping Centre and Sibaya Casino to allow for easier access between the nearby Blackburn Village and the Gateway precinct.

The 177m long cable-stay suspension bridge is unique in the region with its central A-frame concrete pylon towering impressively some 61m up into the air. Built within just a 12 month contract period this wonderful structure is a welcome addition to the Durban skyline, an exemplary example of good modern design and construction. Designed to reduce pedestrian deaths from people haphazardly crossing the freeway to get into the hub of the Gateway Precinct this structure is certain to change the wellbeing and lives of many.
