Its been upgraded to a double carriageway and a new bridge was also built.
Madikizela says more than
300 jobs were created during construction which began two years ago
"More than 80 percent of the people who worked on this project are coming from the surrounding areas, including the sub-contractors and millions of rand have been spent to benefit these sub-contractors.
