Traffic on the N2 and M13 will be severely affected this weekend due to the demolition of the King Cetshwayo bridge.
The SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) said traffic will be affected between Saturday, October 14, and Monday, October 16.
Sanral said this major road network is and has been under major stress for a number of years, as traffic volumes have exceeded the original design capacity of the EB Cloete Interchange and its feeder roads.
"The N2 north and south between EB Cloete Interchange (Spaghetti Junction) and Umgeni Road Interchange and the M13 between Westwood Mall (Essex Terrace Interchange) and 45th Avenue (45th Cutting) will be closed to traffic," Sanral said.
M13 closed as follows:
Eastbound (Pinetown to Durban) at the Essex Terrace Interchange near Westwood Mall
Westbound (Durban to Pinetown) at 45th Avenue
N2 closed as follows at the EB Cloete Interchange (Spaghetti Junction) N3/N2 Interchange:
