Paper presented at the 33rd Annual Southern African Transport Conference 7-10 July 2014 "Leading Transport into the Future", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
A first for South Africa, the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Transport (DoT) has partnered
with the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL SOC LTD) to upgrade the R102 /
P535 / P743 intersection( west of the eSikhawini off-ramp off the N2 between Mtunzini and
Empangeni) into a Turbo Roundabout traffic circle. Royal HaskoningDHV was appointed
for the design of the turbo roundabout.
The benefits include:
improved driver safety
reduced delays and congestion at the intersection; and
improved pedestrian safety and crossing opportunities
When compared with a normal traffic circle, the crossing over of lanes when exiting the
circle has now been eliminated with the design of the Turbo Roundabout, resulting in less
side swipe accidents.
