Road closure along the R75 south bound near Kariega

Eastern Cape, 25 January 2024 – The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) advises road users that the R75 near Kariega (formerly Uitenhage) at Union Avenue, travelling south- bound towards Gqeberha, is closed until 6 March 2024, to allow for the replacement of bridge bearings and joints as well as other roadworks.
• Traffic will be diverted off the R75 at the Union Avenue/R367 off-ramp at Kariega and proceed via the R367 to Despatch. Traffic can then rejoin the R75 or travel via Algoa Road to Despatch.
• The on-ramp used for entering the R75 south-bound from Union Road/R367 will also be closed.

Traffic to Kariega off the R75 will remain unaffected. Motorists are advised that information sign boards and all other speed-limiting temporary signs for the road closure will be placed along the construction zone.
The contractor’s traffic safety officer as well as the site safety officer will be present for the duration of this activity. Flag personnel will be placed at various locations along the R75.

“Road users are requested to plan their trips accordingly, consider alternative routes and practice caution when using the alternate roads,” said Mbulelo Peterson, Regional Manager for SANRAL Southern Region.

SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused in this regard.
