WBHO has successfully completed Phase one which consisted of the realignment and rehabilitation of 25km of the N4 between Rustenburg and Swartruggens. Phase two consists of an additional 25km of the N4 just outside of Rustenburg. The project is being constructed while the existing N4, a major artery into Botswana, remains open to commuters. Construction is being conducted in half widths to minimize stop/go systems in combination with diverting traffic onto temporary traffic accommodation shoulders.
