N2 roadworks project reaches practical completion

From today, 5 December 2017, motorists have been able to enjoy travelling on the new lanes of the N2 between Borcherds Quarry Rd and the R300.

A Chinese start-up has developed a flying car that it plans to roll out as soon as next year.

Four battery-powered propellers lift the drone off the ground, and it’s equipped with fully automated navigation, according to Hu.
