INSTALLATION OF TEMPORARY LIGHTING BETWEEN SANCTUARY ROAD AND LINK ROAD
Pietermaritzburg, 19 July 2022 – Roadworks to erect temporary lighting will lead to the closure of the N3 from Sanctuary Road to link Road, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.
“In an attempt to improve road safety in the area temporary lighting will be installed on a portion of the N3 between Sanctuary Road and Link Road (between km 16.2 and km 18.4). The work entails the installation of numerous 14m long poles in the median between the two carriageways,” said Thabiso Dladla, SANRAL’s Eastern region Project Manager.
To provide enough space for the safe installation of the infrastructure the fast lane on the northbound carriageway will need to be closed daily from 21 July to 29 July 2022, between the hours of 09h00 and 15h00.
The alternate route to be used by light motor vehicles only during the road closure is the Old Howick Road (R103). Motorists travelling from Pietermaritzburg towards Harrismith can use the Old Howick Road and can join the N3 either at Hilton or Cedara. All vehicles above 8-ton MAY NOT use the R103 and should allow for extra time for their journey.
“SANRAL wishes to apologise to the motoring public for any inconvenience caused during the road closure. We appeal to road users to adhere to the road signs and speed limit when approaching the construction site,” said Dladla.
