N2 project concludes December 2016

2016-09-21 06:00

THE South African National Roads Agency Soc Ltd (SANRAL) has announced that the N2 Bramlin off-ramp to the salt pans near Coega will be completed by December 2016.

This R198 million roadworks project with a duration of 18 months has now reached 80% completion. The outstanding work on the freeway relates to road marking and the installation of bridge joints.

The bulk of the remaining surfacing work is on the freeway on-off ramps, and cross roads and will be carried out during off-peak time during weekends and at night.

“The roadworks are being carried out on one of the most heavily trafficked freeways in the Eastern Cape. This section of the N2 also carries a lot of local commuter traffic thus requiring careful planning in order to minimise traffic congestion and inconvenience to the public,” said Mbulelo Peterson, Regional Manager for SANRAL Southern Region.

“SANRAL became aware that motorists from the western suburbs experienced acute congestion on Friday, September 9, as a result of a truck that overturned between Cotswold and Stanford interchange. Unfortunately, the freeway also became congested on Monday, September 12, when the contractor had to close one traffic lane in order to complete an operation that was interrupted by the Friday accident,” he said.

SANRAL regrets and apologises for any inconvenience caused during the implementation of this necessary road maintenance project. – REPORTER
