PROPOSED UPGRADING OF THE ISIPINGO INTERCHANGE ON THE N2 SECTION 25, KWAZULU-NATAL

Description:

The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) is proposing to upgrade the existing Isipingo Interchange on the N2 Section 25 located approximately 21 km south of Durban.  The existing overpass bridge is susceptible to constant impact due to insufficient vertical clearance while the existing span over the N2 is not long enough to accommodate the future widening of the N2.  Traffic projections indicate that the bridge would also need to be widened to accommodate the predicted future traffic volumes.  The proposed project requires the undertaking of a Basic Assessment process and a Water use Licence Application process.

Client:

Naidu Consulting (Pty) Ltd on behalf of SANRAL

Status:

The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) issued an Amended Environmental Authorisation (EA) for the proposed project on 23 June 2017.  The granted amendment relates to the extension of the validity period for the EA.

The Amended EA is available for download below.  A copy of the original EA is also still available for download below.  For information purposes the Final Basic Assessment Report is also still available.

Any person who wishes to appeal against the Amended EA must submit an appeal to the appeal administrator, and a copy of the appeal to the applicant, any registered interested and affected party, and any organ of state with an interest in the matter within 20 days from the date that the notification of the decision was sent to the registered interested and affected parties by the applicant.
