The eThekwini Transport Authority (ETA) in Durban, South Africa are in the process of planning, designing and implementing the various corridors of the Integrated Rapid Public Transport Network (IRPTN), branded Go!Durban, across the city.

Corridor C9 traverses land owned by Tongaat Hulett Developments (THD) in the Cornubia precinct, north of Durban. In conjunction with Hatch (traffic and public transport) and IYER (town planning), SMEC has been appointed to provide concept, preliminary and detail design for the IRPTN, Corridor C9, better known as the Cornubia Boulevard Transit Orientated Development (TOD).



The development is located along a central public transport route with large commercial, mixed-use and residential properties. The vision of both ETA and THD is to develop Cornubia Boulevard as a high-density, mixed-use, urban transit-oriented development (TOD) led by the IRPTN network.

SMEC was appointed to the project on the basis of its strong project team, delivery on previous projects within Cornubia, the team’s technical capabilities and industry-leading knowledge of the area.
