Section three of the Brakwater to Dobra dual-carriageway complete
Section three of the dual-carriageway, running from Brakwater to Dobra River, between Windhoek and Okahandja, has been completed.
The upgrade of the 10 kilometre long dual-carriageway began in January 2014, and was completed in December last year.
Roads Authority Namibia Chief Executive Officer, Conrad Lutombi, has told a media briefing the completed section was also renamed from B1 to A1, in accordance with Roads Authority and Ministry of Works and Transport, standards.
The standards state that all freeways should be called 'A', and road signs should not be green, but blue.
The completed section, consists of two new crossing points at Dobra south and north, where all the interchanges consist of a freeway that underpasses the main freeway, leading to the nearby municipal network.
The project cost N$335 million, which was provided by the Road Fund Administration, through a loan from the German funding agency, KfW.
Seven kilometres of the section is expected to be completed by the end of June this year, while its total completion is envisioned for January 2019.
Lutombi says the Roads Authority will engage Government to extend the freeway up to Otjiwarongo, with a possibility of reaching to Otavi.
