The N3 will be fully closed on 12 June 2024 between 14h30 and 15h00 to facilitate blasting next to the Market Road Overpass Bridge in KwaZulu Natal, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.

This work is part of the N3 upgrade project from Gladys Manzi Road to the New England Road Interchange.

Jason Lowe, SANRAL’s Eastern Region Project Manager, explained the closure:

“The N3 closure will take place between the Ashburton and New England Road Interchanges. Closures will also be necessary on the following secondary roads in the vicinity of the blasting activities:

  • Market Road at Van Eck Place
  • Alan Paton Ave at Blackburrow Road

Our traffic accommodation team, with the assistance of the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI), will manage and monitor the diversion of traffic during all sessions,” Lowe said.

The full road closures will occur as follows:

  • 12 June 2024, Wednesday
    • 14h30 to 14h45 – Close N3 and secondary roads and blast.
    • 14h45 to 15h00 – Clean up any debris on all roads.
    • 15h00 – Reopen N3 and secondary roads for all vehicles.

The R103 will be available as an alternative route during the blast. However, substantial delays are likely as the R103 cannot handle the same volume of traffic as the N3.

The closure may need to be adjusted depending on weather conditions on the day. If that happens, a second notice with information on the new time will be issued.

Motorists are urged to remain patient during the closure and are advised to plan and adjust their routes while adhering to speed limits.

“SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused and appreciates the public’s patience during the ongoing major road enhancements,” said Lowe.
