A1, Namibia

19 April 2017

A 10 kilometer segment of the new A1 freeway in Namibia was inaugurated on 19 April 2017. It runs from Brakwater north of Windhoek to de Döbra River. It seems to be the first new freeway in Namibia since at least the early 1980s. It is part of the Windhoek - Okahandja freeway upgrade project.

For this occasion, new A-numbering for freeways has been introduced and blue signs are used for such freeways.

It appears though, that the freeway itself may have been in service since December 2016, but the official inauguration by the Roads Authority occurred on 19 April 2017.

Mind that this is just opening of one carriageway used in contraflow, while the other carriageway is built on the footprint of the old road that is now replaced by the opened carriageway... I wouldn't call that a motorway opening, thus, as construction is still fully going on....
