Closure of Daniel Pienaar Road On-ramp in Uitenhage for Upgrade

JANUARY 7, 2015

The South African National Road Agency Limited (SANRAL), the parastatal responsible for the management, maintenance and development of South Africa’s national road network, on Wednesday announced that it has commenced the closing of the on-ramp between the R75 and R334, also known as Daniel Pienaar road, near Uitenhage, just outside Port Elizabeth.

The on-ramp is closed due to construction required to stabilise the slope next to the on-ramp.

An alternative on-ramp is now in place for motorists exiting Uitenhage for Graaff-Reinet via the R75 or Daniel Pienaar Road.  Motorists will be required to follow temporary road signs and make use of the alternative on-ramp with immediate effect today (07 January 2015).

SANRAL hopes that maintenance and upgrades to the existing on-ramp will be completed in August 2015.

Motorists are encouraged to adhere to rules of the road and drive carefully.
