Pretoria – Motorists travelling to Tshwane have been advised to avoid low-lying bridges that pose a risk of flooding.

Tshwane EMS spokesperson Johan Pieters told News24 on Tuesday morning that the Apies bridge in Capital Park was partially covered on Tuesday morning.

“People should take extra care; we expect more low water bridges to be affected by the flood. The bridges do flood in areas and Apies is partially covered. People must take care,” Pieterse told News24.   

The SA Weather Services said flooding is expected in places over the eastern parts of the North West province, Gauteng, as well as on the southern and eastern Mpumalanga Highveld.

Pretoria will be partly cloudy with scattered showers and thundershowers with a maximum of 33 degrees on Tuesday.
