The South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) would like to notify motorists of road resurfacing taking place on the R75 on/off ramps between Despatch and Uitenhage.

“The road closures are necessary due to the constricted construction area that requires resurfacing. The area that requires resurfacing cannot accommodate both the construction plant and the travelling public safely and therefore requires road closures,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Region Manager.

Appropriate traffic accommodation and temporary road signage will be in place.

The following on/off ramps on National Route R75 freeway from Despatch (km 12.6 road marker) to Uitenhage (km 29.1 road marker) will be closed daily from 07:00 until 17:00:
