The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) will conduct rock blasting on the N3 near the Camperdown Overpass bridge on March 14, 2023 at 14h00.

The blasting will be done to necessitate the construction of the stormwater system and pavement layers.

According to Sanral Eastern Region project manager Thabiso Dladla, the blasting exercise is part of the ongoing N3 upgrades from the Cato Ridge Interchange to the northern end of the Dardanelles Cutting.

To ensure the safety of the construction team and road users, the speed limit along the route has been reduced to 80 km/h.

Lane closures can be expected in the evening to allow construction vehicles to safely enter and exit the work zone, and the public will be informed in advance of any such activity.

Motorists are advised to plan their trips carefully and be vigilant while travelling on the road due to expected delays resulting from the reduced speed limit.

Sanral apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks road users for their cooperation and understanding as necessary upgrades are made.

“The blasting on the N3 is an essential part of the ongoing infrastructure development projects aimed at improving the road networks in South Africa,” said Dladla.
