N2 night-time road closure at Thembalethu Bridge in George


Western Cape, 24July 2023 – The South African National Roads Agency (SOC) Limited (SANRAL) would like to inform road users traveling on the N2 George, of planned night-time road closures at the Thembalethu Bridge, from 25 July to 4 August 2023.

“These closures are required to remove form work and steel beams used during the casting of the new bridge across the N2,” explained Petronella Theron, SANRAL Project Manager.

During the lane closures, motorists will be able to use the off ramps at the bridge to gain access to the N2 on the other side, in order to continue their journey.  Closures are expected to be in place from 18:00 to 05:00. For two nights the closures will affect the eastbound traffic (direction Knysna) and for the other two nights it will affect the westbound traffic (direction Cape Town).

“We appeal to road users to reduce speed in the construction area and to be patient. We have opted to execute these works that necessitate a lane closure, under night time conditions, so as to minimise the inconvenience to road users,” said Theron.
