Reduced lane widths and shoulder closures on N3 northbound between M13 interchange and Hammarsdale interchange
Durban, 13 December 2023 – Short-term single lane closures will be applied between the M13/N3 and Hammarsdale Interchanges between 12 December 2023 and 29 February 2024, for the placement of the concrete barriers and for the remarking of traffic lanes, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) has announced.
The Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI), with the assistance of our contractor’s traffic accommodation team, will manage and monitor traffic during these closures.
Furthermore, the traffic lanes on the N3 Northbound (Pietermaritzburg-bound) between the M13 and Hammarsdale interchanges will have long-term reduced lane widths from 10 January to 29 July 2024, as part of the construction process for the realignment of the N3 between Key Ridge and Hammarsdale.
Concrete barriers will be used to separate public traffic from the construction areas where the works will take place. Traffic will be flowing on the slow, middle, and fast lanes, which will be reduced in lane width from the M13/N3 merge up to the Hammarsdale off-ramp.
“Motorists are urged to be patient during the closures and to plan and adjust their trips to ensure they arrive at their destinations on time, while adhering to sign posted speed limits. SANRAL apologises to the motoring public for any inconvenience caused and thanks them for their patience during road construction,” said SANRAL project manager, Jason Lowe.
