Situated south of the Allandale interchange and north of the Buccleuch interchange, the overpass creates a direct link between Midrand and Waterfall City, opening up an important route that makes travelling easier and faster for the growing number of people who live and work in this leading-edge Gauteng development node.
The superstructure of the bridge totals a length of 115.8 metres and carries four lanes of traffic – two in each direction – a pedestrian walkway, a cycle track and a raised centre median, resulting in a width of 22.7 metres. It also features street lighting below and above the bridge, illuminating the N1 highway and Bridal Veil Road.
The development was undertaken in strategic phases to minimise disruption to traffic on the N1 while the overpass bridge was being constructed.
The new Bridal Veil Road Overpass bridge was completed on time for the launch of the iconic new 127,000sqm super-regional shopping centre, Mall of Africa, at Waterfall City, which will opened in April 2016.
