The Windhoek-Hosea Kutako International Airport phase one extension-southern link has been officially opened for drivers. Conrad Lutombi, CEO of the Roads Authority, announced the opening in Windhoek.

This 5-kilometre stretch of road, connecting to the Police Roadblock on the Windhoek-Rehoboth road, was completed over two years at a cost of three million dollars. The link allows traffic from Okahandja to travel to the Rehoboth police checkpoint without passing through Windhoek.

This will help alleviate traffic congestion around the Aus interchange. Safety measures like traffic lights, cameras, and lighting have been put in place.

The RA plans to begin work on the Windhoek-Rehoboth road next year. A 1.5-kilometre section is still needed to fully connect the motorway to Rehoboth, which will provide access to the military base and other areas.

Phase one of the airport road is nearing completion, and phases 2A and 2B are expected to be finished by July and November 2024, respectively.
