The changing landscape of the motorway between Johannesburg and Pretoria is ever present with these three photos taken from the same spot over 2 years.

This is the bridge that will carry the Gautrain, across the Lyttleton junction.

The Gautrain (derived from Gauteng being the province) is an ambitious rapid rail link that will operate through many suburbs through Pretoria and Johannesburg. It will certainly make a positive contribution in easing the traffic congestion between the two cities. It's main function is to augment the development of the public transport infrastructure that is so badly needed in this region. And, it will provide a safe and rapid transport system to service the commuters traveling between the two cities.
