Huguenot Tunnel open to all traffic

Western Cape, 8 May 2024 – The Huguenot Tunnel is currently open to all traffic, in both directions, as of 01h30 today. This after a serious crash between a heavy motor vehicle and a bakkie with a trailer, just before 19h00 yesterday, 7 May caused a full tunnel closure, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.

“Rescue services were quickly on scene and attended to injuries and thankfully no fatalities occurred due to the crash. Provincial Traffic redirect traffic via the alternative route while the emergency response and tunnel maintenance teams retrieved the wreckage and cleared all debris. The teams had cleared the scene and ensured it was safe to re-open the road by 01h30 this morning and the tunnel remains fully open to all traffic,” said Mike Vinello-Lippert, SANRAL Project Manager for the Huguenot Tunnel.

SANRAL will keep the public updated on the tunnel operations.
