Over R1 billion has been spent on upgrading the road network to improve access to Waterfall. While the Allandale Road exit which connects to the N1 freeway was upgraded to create the first free-flowing intersection of its kind and scale in Africa, the building of the Bridal Veil bridge across the N1 also drastically improved traffic flow in this area. The Woodmead interchange is currently being upgraded and construction of the K60 is in the pipeline, which will furthermore ease traffic congestion. All infrastructure plans are designed to consider future traffic flow and growth.
