Welcome to Sandton Central
The next stage of upgrades to the M1 freeway and bridges in Johannesburg will start in early May. Construction work on the Double Decker section and the Oxford and Federation Roads bridges is continuing and traffic diversions will remain in place for the next 12 months.
Home to a burgeoning list of green buildings - including some of the largest and most cutting edge on the continent - Sandton Central and the broader Sandton node is an epicentre for green building in Africa.
The massive R180 million upgrade to roads and walkways in Sandton Central continues apace.
The Johannesburg Road Agency (JRA)'s major rehabilitation to three bridges on the M1 freeway is soon to enter its second phase. The construction will lead to significant long-term improvements to the City of Johannesburg's freeway network – but this phase will also cause inevitable short-term disruptions to traffic and delays for road users.
