Second freeway phase launched

20 November 2019 | Infrastructure

Yolanda Nel Phase 2A of the Windhoek – Hosea Kutaku dual carriageway was officially launched on Monday.
Roads and transport minister John Mutorwa said at the event that this development brings people together. “Namibia’s road infrastructure is important and gives us access to connect with our neighbouring countries.”
According to him, this project signifies and portrays the national commitment and determination to provide world class road infrastructure to serve the Namibian people. “This will link Namibia not only to SADC but to the rest of Africa.”
During the welcoming remarks, Windhoek East councillor Joyce Nangula Namuhuja said that the completion of the highway will improve the local traffic continuity. “This road will also promote business, trade and economic activities which will be beneficial to all residents of the Khomas region, tourists and visitors.”
Namuhuia added that Namibia’s road infrastructure is ranked first in Africa. “It remains the commitment of government to expand and modernise our road, rail and maritime infrastructure to support economic growth in the country.”
Phase 2A runs from the Sam Nujoma Drive interchange to Dordabis interchange and will cost around N$950 million which is funded through a loan by the African Development Bank. This section consists of 19.5km of dual-carriageway (freeway standards) that includes three interchanges and two river bridges.
The scope of the work starts at Auasblick and ends near Kappsfarm. More than 400 Namibians are expected to be employed for this phase.
Phase 1 of the Windhoek-HKIA dual-carriageway construction which runs from the Western Bypass close to the University of Namibia was funded by government. According to Mutorwa, phase 2B will run from the Dordabis interchange up to HKIA and could be funded by the Chinese government.
