The agency said it would update the travelling public on progress and changes.

“Motorists are urged to exercise patience while driving through the alternative routes and to plan and adjust their route trips ahead of time. Please adhere to all signage and speed limits.”

Sanral said the M13 bridge over the N2 will be closed with both the Westbound and Eastbound traffic being unable to use the King Cetshwayo Bridge.

The N2 will also be closed to traffic in both directions between the Spaghetti Junction and Umgeni interchanges (North and South bound carriageways).

“The closures are due to the demolition of half of the King Cetshwayo bridge on the M13 as part of the N2 upgrade process. The traffic accommodation team, with the assistance of the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) and Durban Metro Police, will manage and monitor the diversion of traffic during the closure.”
