Cape Town -

All major roads, apart from the R62 between Ashton and Montagu, were safe and open to traffic on Wednesday, a Western Cape official said.

Transport spokesman Al-Ameen Kafaar said the R62 was opened at 6pm on Wednesday and motorists should expect a stop-go traffic flow.

“Maintenance teams are filling up a portion of the collapsed road through the Kogmanskloof pass. It flooded when the Kesie and Kingna Rivers burst their banks due to the heavy rains,” Kafaar said.

He said the all other major routes and passes including the N1, N2, N7, Route 62 to Ashton and to Uniondale, Sir Lowry's Pass, Meiringspoort and the Mossel Bay Pass in the Western Cape were unaffected. - Sapa
