The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) would like to inform the public of special maintenance road works that will be carried out on the N2, Section 2 from the Gordons Bay Intersection to Houw Hoek Pass.
The project, which starts in May 2018, includes the resealing of distressed areas of the road surface, an asphalt overlay, as well as shoulder widening at the foot of Sir Lowry’s Pass, Steenbras River and near Kromco. Works will extend for a total length of 39 kilometers.
Construction will be concentrated in specific work zones and will not affect the entire stretch of road at any one time. During the construction period, one-way traffic will be accommodated on certain sections of the road, and traffic will be regulated with Stop/Go systems during day time and traffic signals at night.
Up to four road closures, covering a maximum length of two kilometers will be encountered with an average waiting time of approximately 15 minutes at each point.
Construction work between the Gordons Bay Intersection and Grabouw will be carried out during night time, however limited work will be required during day time.
“Motorists are requested to reduce speed in the construction zone and to be on the look-out for workers and pedestrians at all times. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by July 2019,”said Randall Cable, SANRAL’s Western Region Manager.
SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused during the construction period.
