Seeing Through the Cracks - Johannesburg Bridges Under Scrutiny

On February 28, the Johannesburg Roads Agency will be closing the M2 highway between the Crown Interchange and Maritzburg Street in Johannesburg. This is the first step in maintenance work which will continue until October, the city's mayor Herman Mashaba said, explaining that "78% of the city's bridge infrastructure is in poor condition".
