Umhlanga-Cornubia flyover bridge open

Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre continues to connect people and create a place of convenient living. The R280 million flyover bridge to and from Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre and Cornubia has officially been opened this month.

“The bridge over the N2, with its dedicated bus lanes, has been a vital key in unlocking the development of the C9 route from KwaMashu to Umhlanga for the GO!Durban integrated public transport network,” shares Thami Manyathi, Head of the eThekwini Transport Authority.

Manyathi continues, “The eThekwini Municipality’s vision for the new transport network, which links the entire city, is driven by the need to redress the imbalances of the past and propel the economy forward. Areas that have been historically segregated are now being linked. This means better access to opportunities, as well as the potential for economic activities to develop around the transport nodes. The bridge is a great reminder that the improvement of public transport is not about infrastructure and roads, but about the connections and links human beings are able to make with people and places.”

The addition of the flyover ensures that people living in Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre not only have access to amenities but also have easy access to industrial businesses and office sites outside of the area. For those living in the Phoenix and Cornubia areas now have a direct access point to businesses, retail and lifestyle amenities in Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre. Everything becomes closer and a lot easier to get to.

With this new development transport routes will become faster, and more development will take place drawing further investment into Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre. While this node is the centre for top businesses, we can only see more offices relocate and set up here; enhancing the live-work-play lifestyle.

To ensure you live within this flourishing and connected node, contact our dedicated development consultants and secure one of the final opportunities in Summer Park Umhlanga.
