Eastern Cape, 15 August 2022: The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) wishes to notify travellers that remedial work is taking place on the N2 from Makhanda (formerly Grahamstown) to Fish River Pass until mid-December 2022. Stop-go traffic control is currently underway to accommodate half-width construction works and will operate for a full 24 hours each day, including weekends.
The works will include stop-go controls between the Coombs turn-off at km 79.5 to km 85 and at km 88.5 to km 92 at Frasers Camp where works are being carried out on one half of the road. Motorists are advised to obey the speed restrictions, consider the safety of road workers and other road users, and to be aware of loose stones on the roadway.
Motorists are advised that the stop-go control from km 88.5 to km 92 is in the westbound direction, towards Makhanda.
Future works will include a stop-go control between km 79.5 to km 85.
Motorists travelling westwards between East London or Qonce (formerly King Williams Town) and Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) may consider using the following alternative route:
- From East London, follow the R72 to Port Alfred and Kenton-on-Sea through to Nanaga and turn left onto the N2 and continue on to Gqeberha.
