The closure may need to be adjusted depending on weather conditions on the day. If that happens, a second notice with information about the new time will be issued.



The N3 will be fully closed on June 6, 2024, between 2:30pm and 3pm, to facilitate blasting next to the N3 opposite the Peacevale Interchange, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.



The N3 closure will take place between the M13/ N3 split and the Hammarsdale Interchange.



Closures will also be necessary on the following secondary roads in the vicinity of the blasting activities:



  • Meadway Road at Thousand Hills Street intersection
  • Sterkspruit Road at Capital Hill Drive intersection
  • D706 Road accessing Peacevale.


“Our traffic accommodation team, with the assistance of the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI), will manage and monitor the diversion of traffic during all sessions,” explained Jason Lowe, SANRAL’s Eastern region project manager.



The full road closure is proposed to take place as follows:



Thursday, June 6: 



  • 2:30pm to 2:45pm: Close N3 and secondary roads and blast.
  • 2:45pm to 3pm: Clean up any debris on the N3 and secondary roads.
  • 3pm: Reopen N3 and secondary roads for all vehicles.


The R103 will be available as an alternative route during the blast. Substantial delays are, however, likely as the R103 is unable to handle the same volume of traffic as the N3.



The closure may need to be adjusted depending on weather conditions on the day. If that happens, a second notice with information about the new time will be issued.



“We ask motorists to be patient during the closure and to plan and adjust their route trips to accommodate the closure while adhering to speed limits. SANRAL apologises to the motoring public for any inconvenience caused and thanks them for their patience during road construction,” concluded Lowe.
