TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE OF D706 IN CLIFFDALE ON-RAMP
Thursday, 15 June 2023 – Full-road closures are scheduled to take place along the D706 Meadway Road, which serves as the southbound carriageway on- ramp at Interchange Number 40 that joins National Route 3 (N3), the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.
“This section on D706 will be temporarily closed from Monday, 19 June 2023 until 31 October 2023. The closure is due to the construction of the concrete culverts replacing the Armco pipes that collapsed during floods in the eThekwini Region in May 2022,” said Mpho Nephembani, SANRAL’s Eastern Region Project Manager.
During the closure, warning signboards will be placed on the affected section. Motorists are required to proceed on Meadway Road to access the Hammarsdale Interchange (Interchange No 43) Southbound carriageway on-ramp on the N3. An access gravel road will be provided for local small vehicles and NOT for any heavy vehicles with gross vehicle mass above 3.5 tons (GVM >3.5ton). NO heavy vehicles will be permitted on the temporary road deviation.
“SANRAL would like to apologise to the motoring public for any inconvenience caused during the road closure. We appeal to road users to adhere to the road signs and speed limit when approaching the construction site,” said Nephembani.
