Bridal Veil Bridge over N1
Situated south of the Allandale interchange and north of the Buccleuch interchange, the overpass creates a direct link between Midrand and Waterfall City, opening up an important route that will make travelling easier and faster for the growing number of people who live and work in this leading-edge Gauteng development node.
The superstructure of the bridge has a total length of 115.8 metres and carries four lanes of traffic – two in each direction – a pedestrian walkway, a cycle track and a raised centre median, resulting in a width of 22.7 metres. It also features street lighting below and above the bridge, illuminating the N1 highway and Bridal Veil Road.
The new Bridal Veil Road Overpass bridge was completed on time for the launch of the iconic new 130,000sqm super-regional shopping centre, Mall of Africa, at Waterfall City, which opened in 2016.
