According to the department’s Bongani Tembe, dirt roads will now be something of the past, with the new road also featuring the largest suspension bridge in Africa.
“Currently, if you travel between Kosi Bay and Maputo, you spend about six hours. We have been told that once this road has been constructed, it will take about 90 minutes to travel. That is a huge achievement,” said Tembe.
He added that the initiative is aimed at developing the area shared by South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland.
“If tourists from different parts of the province want to go to Mozambique, they go via the Kosi Bay Border Post. It’s now going to be much easier for tourists to travel to Maputo. This will facilitate trade between the two countries,” he said.
