N2 to be closed again to facilitate the construction of the pedestrian bridge over the N2

N2 to be closed again to facilitate the construction of the pedestrian bridge over the N2

Issued George Municipality on behalf of Aurecon

9th November 2018

 

CLOSURE DETAILS: MONDAY 12 NOVEMBER from evening 19h00 to 06h00 TUESDAY morning 13 NOVEMBER, the N2 at km 25.6 on Route 2 Section 7 near George will be closed to facilitate final preparation and the cross-over of contra-flow traffic from the East Bound Carriageway onto the West Bound Carriageway.

 

Traffic using the N2 will be detoured through George during this time. Additional signage has been placed at relevant main routes in this regard.

 

George and Provincial Traffic Departments will assist with traffic management during this time. Road users in George should take note that diverted traffic from the N2 will also affect traffic in town, and people should allow for extra travel time on such days.

 

All road users must exercise extreme caution on the N2 at all times, and should be aware that crossovers may have been implemented or changed since the previous time they have travelled on that stretch of road. Please take heed of road signs and adhere to temporary speed restrictions put in place.

 

During partial closure of the N2, temporary crossovers over the median will transfer road users from one carriageway onto another and two-way traffic will apply on one carriageway at a time.

 

Please note construction is weather-dependent, which may affect implementation dates. If applicable, please watch and listen out for media updates in this regard.

 

According to Aurecon, the road engineers for the South African National Road Agency Limited (SANRAL) on this project, the safety requirements relating to the placing of beams over both carriageways necessitate partial or full closure of the N2 for hours or a day at a time, depending on the nature of the work being done.
