N2 Wildcoast Toll Project

HSRC Research Report on Pondoland (PDF - 901KB)

The Wild Coast in the Eastern Province is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. However, it is also one of the poorest and would be well served by the development of a road system to encourage tourism and open up the region to economic opportunities. Environmental considerations are paramount and a comprehensive public participation process has been followed over several years. The final scoping report, with alternative alignments, has been submitted to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism.

The Final Scoping Report (FSR) was accepted by DEAT in 2007. The draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) were presented for review in 2008. The review period closed on 22 January 2009. The final EIR will be submitted to DEAT shortly for decision.
