Northern Cape, 4 December 2023 – The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) wishes to inform road users that Stop/Go traffic accommodation will be implemented on the N8 Section 6 between Volop and Griekwastad, fromtoday (4 December 2023). 

In order to accommodate holiday traffic, works will be suspended on Thursday 14 December 2023, and there will be no further Stop/Go operations until 9 January 2024, when works will resume. 

The scope of work will involve the Periodic Maintenance (pre-treatment and re-seal of the existing road surface) of the N8 Section 6 as well as the improvement or replacement of existing drainage and ancillary works infrastructure. 

“Speed restrictions of 60km per hour will be applied at the work zones and the repairs are expected to be completed by the end of September 2024,” said Ms Jabulile Nyatela, SANRAL’s Western Region Project Manager. Motorists may choose to make use of alternative routes or allow extra time when travelling on this section of the road. 

SANRAL appeals to motorists to adhere to the warning signs, to reduce speed when approaching the construction zones and to plan their trips accordingly.
