Upgrading of the N2 highway between Grahamstown and Fish River Pass

The South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) would like to notify travellers that controlled blasting is scheduled to take place on the N2 between Grahamstown and the Fish River Pass on Friday, 18 August 2017, between 2:30pm and 4:30pm. The road will be closed for approximately 1 hour between these times.

The closure will take place approximately 34 km East of Grahamstown (Settlers Monument turn off).

 Motorists between Port Elizabeth and East London could consider using the R72, although there are roadworks on that route as well.

 “Motorists are requested to plan their trips accordingly and be cautious when making use of the road,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Region’s Manager.
