9 LONGEST NATIONAL ROADScompiled by Buyile Mdladla
According to the South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL), with an approximate road network of 750 000 kilometres (made out of 158 124 km paved, 459 957 km gravel and 131 919 km un-proclaimed gravel), South Africa has the 10th largest road network in the world. That is pretty remarkable for a country which is the 25th largest in the world at 1,22 million square kilometres.
South Africa’s vast road infrastructure is always being developed and remodelled. It is made up of roadways like the main paved/unpaved sections of the road, the side areas that are called shoulders, various structures like flyovers, bridges, and facilities to drain the water from its surface.
Our list of the 9 LONGEST NATIONAL ROADS refers to the extent of distance in kilometres of the country’s national highways/expressways, which are primarily high-speed corridors that connect important trade/business centres or capitals of provinces.
