The rehabilitation of Sections N4-3 and N4-4, between the OR Tambo and Van Dyksdrift interchanges, commenced earlier this year and is now 17% complete. The extensive project awarded to Raubex Construction is valued at approximately R380-million.
The project was initially scheduled for completion in November 2021, but the coronavirus national lockdown resulted in delays. The new completion date has been set for March 2022.
The 19km stretch of the N4 Toll Route was originally built as a concrete road and was overlaid in 2008, as part of a rehabilitation intervention. The current rehabilitation and expansion project includes the removal and replacement of failed concrete slabs and overlaying the entire section. An additional seven kilometres of passing lanes will also be constructed.
Road users are advised that traffic flow will be affected during construction and lane reductions and/or deviations will be in effect. This may result in delays and road users are urged to be patient and plan their trips accordingly.
We would like to thank the public for their cooperation at construction zones along the route and assure you of our continued commitment to keeping the N4 Toll Route in an excellent condition.
