N2 stop-go traffic alert

Home Infrastructure Construction & Civils N2 stop-go traffic alert

THE South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) has announced stop-go traffic controls on the N2 Section 13 between Makhanda (formerly Grahamstown) and Fish River until mid-June 2022.

The controls are in place to accommodate half width construction works and are for a full 24-hour period each day, including weekends. This includes the public holidays on Wednesday 27 April and Monday 2 May.

The road will be under stop-go control on two sections between the Coombs turnoff at km 79.5 to km 85 and from 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 to beware of loose stones on the roadway.

Motorists travelling westwards between East London or Qonce (formerly King William’s Town) and Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) should consider the alternative route along the R72 to Port Alfred and Kenton on Sea through to Nanaga and turn left onto the N2 and continue on to Gqeberha.

Motorists travelling eastwards between Gqeberha and Qonce or East London may consider using the following alternative routes:

  • From Gqeberha, follow the N2 to Nanaga and turn right onto the R72 at the junction at Nanaga and travel on via Alexandria and Port Alfred to East London.
  • From East London, turn left onto the N2 and travel westwards through to Qonce.

“Motorists are requested to plan their trips, accordingly, consider alternative routes and use caution when making use of the roads,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Regional Manager. He apologised for the inconvenience.
