Road closures on the N3 today begin at 4 am until 4 pm to accommodate the demolition of the temporary pier in the median, which might cause delays.

The N3 north-bound carriageway fast lane will be closed at Ohrtmann Road bridge and the road will open back to two lanes after the Chota Motala bridge.

The N3 south-bound carriageway fast lane will be closed and the road will open back to two lanes at Ohrtmann Road bridge.
