The beautiful Msikaba Bridge is scheduled to become the second longest span crossing ever constructed on the African Continent with a tower to tower distance of 580 meters. Only the Maputo-Catembe Bridge in Mozambique will be longer, having opened in 2018 with a suspension span of 680 meters. The new cable stayed bridge will also become the third highest bridge in Africa with a deck 194 meters high. This drop is exceeded only by the 216 meter high Bloukrans Bridge and the 223 meter high Mtentu Bridge, also located on the new N2 tollway bypass road.

The Msikaba and Mtentu Bridges are part of an improvement to the older N2 Wild Coast Toll Road that will be 85 kilometers shorter and 3 hours faster. Designed by DISSING+WEITLING, the concrete structure will have a deck 22.8 meters wide with walkways on both edges.
