Lane closures for N2 upgrade between Kraaibosch and Touw River

Western Cape, 21 February 2024 – Lane closures will be in place on the N2 section 7 from 27 February 2024, for the upgrade between Kraaibosch and Touw River on the Garden Route, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.

For improved mobility and road safety, as well as to meet the demands of growing developments along the Garden Route, the existing N2 route and access roads will be upgraded by widening and/or reconstruction over the next 27 months.

Construction will be carried out in such a manner that two-way traffic will be maintained on part (half) of the road surface while work takes place on the remaining part of the road surface. However, necessary closures, over a maximum distance of 500m, could take place for short periods to ensure public safety, i.e., removal of vegetation or relocation of services which may endanger the traveling public.

“We appeal to road users to exercise caution, reduce speed and adhere to warning signs in the construction area and to be on the lookout for road construction workers at all times,” said David Le Cordeur, SANRAL’s Project Manager.

SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused. This is however a short-term inconvenience in the pursuit of long-term road safety upgrades, which will benefit all road users.
