TEMPORARY RAMP CLOSURE AT UMLAAS ROAD INTERCHANGE ON N3 SECTION 2
Pietermaritzburg 11 April 2023 – The northbound off-ramp of the Umlaas Road (Umbumbulu) Interchange (no 61) on the N3 between Camperdown and Pietermaritzburg will be temporary closed on 14 April 2023 for approximately three (3) months, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has said.
“Motorists traveling north on the N3 from Durban towards R56, Richmond, Thornville or Umbumbulu are advised to take the Camperdown off-ramp and to turn left onto the R103 towards the R603 and Umlaas Road, as per the yellow route indicated below,” said Corne? Roux, SANRAL’s Eastern Region Project Engineer.
The closure is necessary to lower the existing N3 in the vicinity of the current access, as part of the current upgrade of the N3 from a four-lane to an eight-lane freeway.
SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused.
