Notice of road maintenance on R46
Periodic maintenance is being undertaken on the R46 between Malmesbury and Hermon from March to November 2019. This R86 million Department of Transport and Public Works project is expected to be complete by February 2020, if everything goes according to plan.
Half-width construction will take place on this road with stop/ go closures. There will be a maximum of three closures, and motorists can expect to have to wait for up to 20 minutes at each closure. There will be a maximum of three closures, which means that delays of up to 60 minutes are possible. Even longer waiting times are likely on steep grades of the Bothmaskloof Pass near Riebeek Kasteel during peak periods.
Motorists are strongly advised to use the alternative routes provided on the attached sketch. The public is requested to be patient, to adhere to speed limits, and obey all road signs. This signage has been put in place to ensure the safety of road users and construction workers.
