Blasting cancelled on the N2 between Makhanda and Fish River Pass in January
Eastern Cape, 25 January 2024 – The blasting planned on section13 and 14 of the N2 between Makhanda and Fish River Pass has been cancelled for this month, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.
The blasting was scheduled to take place on Thursday, 25 January and on Monday, 29 January 2024. This effectively means there’ll be no blasting before the end of January on the two sections.
SANRAL says a new traffic advisory for February will be issued to advise motorists of the blasting dates and times. The upgrades to that section of the N2 will include improvements to the horizontal and vertical alignments, the provision of climbing lanes and construction of community access roads in three villages on the Peddie side of the project.
“The temporary road closures are unavoidable as SANRAL continues its work to upgrade the N2 in the Eastern Cape, which will ultimately benefit road users. Motorists are requested to plan their trips accordingly, consider alternative routes and use caution when making use of the roads,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Regional Manager.
SANRAL apologises in anticipation for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closures.
