Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project
The Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) comprises different phases to upgrade and implement new freeways of an ultimate 560km freeway network. The first phase, comprising the upgrading of 185km of the most congested freeways is currently under construction (a total of 15 work packages).
Apart from widening of the freeways, the GFIP project will also ensure that bottlenecks at interchanges are resolved. For the first phase of the GFIP, 34 interchanges are significantly upgraded, including infamous interchanges such as the Allandale, Rivonia, William Nicol, Gilloolys and Elands interchanges. Furthermore, median lighting and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) will be provided on the network.
