TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Immediate
R61 towards Mthatha is partially closed
Eastern Cape, 3 May 2022: The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) wishes to notify motorists that the R61 about 12 km beyond Ngcobo towards Mthatha, close to Engxogi village, is partially closed due to a minor slope failure.
The failure was caused by persistent rain experienced during the past weeks. There is a stop-and-go control in place and one way traffic will run up until both lanes can be reopened. The distance of road closure 500m and the estimated time for practical completion is four weeks.
“Motorists are requested to plan their trips accordingly, consider alternative routes and use caution when making use of the roads,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Regional Manager.
