Those planning to travel on the N3 in this area are encouraged to consider alternative routes to minimize delays and avoid the affected section of the freeway.

“There is also a diesel spill which must be cleaned before the road can be safely reopened to traffic. All traffic is currently being stacked at both closure points,” said Anita Heyl, spokesperson for N3 Toll Concession.

She said, light rain in the area was also contributing to difficult driving conditions.

Road users are advised to approach the area with caution.
