TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE 16-19 MAY 2017 – N12, Section 9, between Hopetown and Kimberley will be closed daily from Tuesday 16 May to Friday 19 May between 12h00 and 14h00.
The South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) would like to inform all road users of the following road closure. The N12, Section 9, between Hopetown and Kimberley will be closed daily from Tuesday 16 May to Friday 19 May between 12h00 and 14h00 for widening of the bridge over the Orange River.
While motorists travelling from Kimberley towards Hopetown via the N12 have the option to use the N8 as an alternative route to connect with the N1 and then back onto the N12, the distance of the detour is of such a nature that it is not likely to save time.
“Motorists are asked to plan their trips accordingly, and where possible, rather extend their stop-over in Kimberley and use the time to rest before continuing on their journey. From the other side, it is advisable to extend their stop in Hopetown, rather than sitting in a vehicle for up to two hours, without moving,” said Kobus Van der Walt, SANRAL Western Region’s Manager.
SANRAL apologises for any inconvenience caused.
