Highways in the Cape are free; except for two sections, one the N2 Tsitsikamma Toll Route that crosses over a number of deep gorges as massive arch bridges over 200m high. The other, the Huguenot Toll Tunnel (4.4km long) 70km outside Cape Town on the N1 freeway, that section costs R25.00 for light vehicles (US$3.50). Both routes can be avoided by using the alternative routes of the R102 and R101 respectively.

There are so many highways in SA that I particularly like. One of my favourites is the section between Middelburg and Graaff-Reinet of the N9 with the Lootsberg and the Naudesberg Pass.

Í really like the design of Hospital Bend, especially as it goes around a very important hospital.

The pics on this thread are amazing. South Africa's got a very comprehensive road network.

Anyway, I'd like to know why the traffic work-home are much stronger in the Pretoria-Johannesburg rather than the other way around?

The traffic is heavy from PTA-JHB in the mornings because as much as 80 000 PTA citizens work in the corporate offices of JHB (as the economic capital). Much less JHB citizens work in govt dept or agencies in PTA, thus traffic is much higher in the mornings coming into JHB and later as workers leave the city. There's a huge controversy ATM as govt has upgraded the roads (they look crazy- smooth, fast and illuminated) and wants to toll them. Users are up in an uproar so they've posponed it but
