Road closures on the N1 due to sinkhole rehabilitation

Pretoria, 23 February 2022 – The South African National Road Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) wishes to notify road users to expect road closures on the N1 North bound between Botha Avenue and N1/R21 (Flying Saucer interchange) in Centurion to allow for rehabilitation work on the sinkhole.

The lane closures on the N1 section 21 at Km 22.1 will be implemented as follows:

  • Wednesday 23 February 2022 at 22h00 to Thursday 24 February 2022 at 04h00.
  • Thursday, 24 February 2022 at 22h00 to Friday, 25 February 2022 at 04h00.

Progress Hlahla, SANRAL’s Northern Regional Manager, said the closure is required for gravity survey testing taking place in the lanes of the northbound carriageway as part of the geotechnical investigations required for the remediation works on the sinkhole.

During this period only two lanes will be open. The duration of the closure will be kept as short as possible.

“Motorists are requested to plan their trips accordingly, consider alternative routes and use caution when making use of the roads,” said Hlahla.

SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused during this period and will continue to provide updates to road users as information becomes available.
