Bikers, motorists and public transport drivers are to note that new traffic signaling has been installed on the Josiah Gumede and St Johns Road intersection.
Previously the Northern (where Key Pinetown is located) and Southern sides (where Nandos is located) of the intersection worked as two independent junctions having stop lines in the centre of the bridge. Cars had to stop halfway before proceeding through the intersection completely.
Now the Northern and Southern sides of the intersection will work as a single junction. This means that now there are no interim stop positions on the bridge.
This new intersection has been created to allow for the underpass on Josiah Gumede to form part of the dedicated bus lane for GO!Durban, the City’s new integrated rapid public transport network
