Traffic flow to change direction as M13 interchange undergo a revamp
The Municipality wishes to notify residents that traffic flow is due to change direction temporarily from Monday, 27 January at the M13 Highway and Essex Terrace Interchange which is currently being upgraded and is under construction in Ward 30, Westville.

Commuters and drivers will notice that the contractors are already moving concrete barriers this week from the Pinetown to Durban carriageway of the road, to the Durban-Pinetown carriageway. After the moving of barriers, traffic will be flowing in both directions on the Durban-Pinetown carriageway.

It is anticipated that the traffic flow switch will be completed on Monday, 27 January, and will remain in effect for seven months. Motorists are requested to slow down, and heed the temporary traffic signs and instructions, and road safety warnings.

The upgrade of this interchange has been necessary to ease traffic flow in the area due to the significant increase of new residential and recreational developments that have taken place in the zone, as well as to accommodate future developments.

Head of eThekwini Transport Authority, Thami Manyathi said: “We ask that people exercise caution when using the roads, and to be patient as we strive to improve our roads infrastructure. Construction will always slow down the traffic hence we advise drivers to start their journey earlier and to opt for alternate routes.”

Manyathi further mentioned that the estimated completion time for the entire interchange development is in 14 months from now.
