Huguenot Tunnel open to all traffic

Western Cape, 27 April 2024 – The Huguenot Tunnel is now fully open to all traffic in both directions, following a temporary closure for heavy vehicles, due to strong winds on the viaduct (long bridge-like structure) leading to and from the tunnel, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.

The wind has significantly subsided to acceptable levels.

“We will continue to monitor the situation closely and notify road users the moment the situation changes,” said Mike Vinello-Lippert, SANRAL’s Project Manager for the Huguenot Tunnel.

SANRAL appeals to road users to exercise caution as wind speeds can fluctuate and will keep the public updated on the tunnel operations.
