The Municipality would like to notify motorists of a planned closure of the left hand lane of the N2 Southbound carriageway in the vicinity of the Umgeni Interchange from 7 – 12 October. The lane will be closed to traffic from 9am -3pm from Monday to Friday and from 9am – 1pm on Saturday.

The road closure is necessary due to heavy cranes and concrete trucks working in the adjacent lane which may become a safety hazard for the passing vehicles and construction personal working on the interchange.

There will be flagmen and temporary signage in place along the closed lane to caution passing motorists to be alert when driving pass the roadworks.

The Municipality would like to urge motorists to be cautious when travelling in the vicinity and to exercise due patience and courtesy to other drivers.
