Roadworks on the N2 between Komgha River and Grahamstown

Resurfacing of 41km of the N2 between Komgha River Bridge and Grahamstown (1820 Settler’s monument) will take place until March 2017.

The South African National Roads Agency Ltd (SANRAL) would like to advise motorists that there will be up to a maximum of three 24 hour road closures during this time. There will be one temporary roving closure during the day closure that will be erected in the morning and dismantled before sunset, for a distance of 2 - 4km. Currently this closure is situated between Lothians and the R343 Alexandria/Kenton-on-Sea turnoff and moving towards the Grahamstown monument.

Motorists are required to plan their routes and allow an additional 40 minutes between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown.

An alternative route is to take the R343 Kenton-on-Sea turnoff and proceed to Port Elizabeth / Grahamstown via Alexandria.

At present the three 24-hour road closures are situated between the Komgha River and Pumba Game Reserve.

“Motorists must be observant of all lane closures and warning signs, and exercise extreme caution when travelling through the construction work zones,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Region regional manager.

SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused.
