In order to improve the current traffic flows and to provide a road network that will stimulate development and economic growth in the province, SANRAL has set out to upgrade the existing road infrastructure and to add new road infrastructure. The development of the network is based on the “user-pay” principle (i.e. the network will be a toll road network).
