Huguenot Tunnel Open


Huguenot Tunnel Open

Western Cape, 8 April 2024 – The Huguenot Tunnel is now open to all vehicle classes in both directions, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced. This follows a temporary closure on the weekend, due to strong winds on the viaduct (long bridge-like structure) leading to and from the tunnel.

Despite continued windy conditions, emergency services were able to recover a blown over vehicle on the viaduct, which was obstructing traffic.

“Late on Sunday night, the tunnel was opened to light motor vehicles only and by this morning we were able to open to all vehicle classes. We wish to express our gratitude to all emergency and law enforcement teams who worked tirelessly to ensure we get traffic moving again,” said Mike Vinello-Lippert, SANRAL’s Project Manager for the Huguenot Tunnel.

SANRAL appeals to road users to exercise caution as wet and windy conditions prevail across the Western Cape.
