Roadworks continue on busy EL airport route

Home Infrastructure Construction & Civils Roadworks continue on busy EL airport route

EAST London motorists should expect traffic congestion until well into 2023 as roadworks continue on the airport route.

That’s according to the Buffalo City Municipality, which said new kerb inlets are being constructed as part of upgrading of the existing pavement structure.

“The Settlers Way R72 is subject to excessive traffic and congestion during peak hours and this has resulted in many of traffic delays and longer travel times along this route,” the municipality said in a statement.

The multi-million-rand project is a 7.6km stretch that seeks to upgrade Settlers Way from the airport intersection to Fleet Street intersection.

The project will consist of a construction of an additional lane capacity to both Settlers Way and Military Road as well as the upgrading of the existing pavement structure.

The rehabilitation will be done in phases, and it is expected to be completed in May 2023.
