Port Elizabeth drivers advised of road closures

The South African National Roads Agency Ltd (SANRAL) would like to advise motorists of traffic disruptions taking place this week in Port Elizabeth, within the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

The roadworks, which started on  Wednesday, include patching on the eastbound lane between Bramlin interchange and William Moffett Expressway. 

SANRAL will also be patching in the westbound lane between Stanford Road and Cape Road off-ramp.

This lane's closure started on Wednesday and will last up until Saturday.  The on-going work on the undercut in the eastbound lane on Stanford Road is expected to be completed by the middle of November.

These roadworks are part of SANRAL’S 18-month long, special maintenance construction project, entailing localised repairs of existing pavement failures, resurfacing and drainage improvements. 

“We are aware that this portion of N2 carries very high volumes of traffic and all efforts will be made to keep traffic disruptions to a minimum, with most of the construction work being undertaken outside peak periods,” said Mbulelo Peterson, Sanral Southern Regional Manager.

“We urge motorist to travel with caution and to plan their trips in advance or take alternative routes.”
