The South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) is warning motorists of the closure of the N3 southbound from Sanctuary Road to Link Road for the reconstruction of the slow lane.

SANRAL informed motorists about the relevant road closure with regards to works on the reconstruction of the slow lane on National Route 3, Section 3 from Sanctuary Road (km 15.2) to Link Road (km 21.2).

“The Contractor is scheduled to undertake works in the median drain on the southbound carriageway of the N3 at night on 28 June 2022,” said SANRAL.

The current closure in the lanes has reduced the roadway to two lanes – only the middle and fast lanes are in use.

Due to the site conditions and safety concerns, SANRAL would like to notify the public and motorists that the following closures will be required on the southbound carriageway:

21h30 to 22h30: All traffic will be hampered while the contractor prepares in reducing the two lanes to the single middle lane closure. The Hilton on-ramp will also be closed so no vehicle will be allowed to access Hilton Avenue.

22h30 to 23h30: All heavy vehicles will be stopped at the compulsory stop at the arrestor bed area. All light vehicles will be re-routed via Hilton off-ramp onto an alternative route.
