Starting from March 17 and expected to continue until May 13, the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) will conduct routine maintenance on the R21 between OR Tambo International Airport and Pomona road. While this is good news for the longevity of the road, it’s important to note that there will be some disruptions for road users as reported by Engineering News.
To ensure that the maintenance is carried out as efficiently as possible, work will take place every day between 09:00 and 15:00. During this time, motorists can expect some delays, particularly on Pomona road southbound up to OR Tambo International Airport southbound and OR Tambo International Airport northbound up to Pomona road northbound.
Sanral urges all road users to plan their trips accordingly and consider alternative routes. While the maintenance may cause some slight delays, motorists must exercise caution when making use of the affected roads. Road signage and speed adjustments will be put in place to ensure that everyone can navigate the area safely.
“We understand that this maintenance may cause some inconvenience, but we hope that everyone can be patient and comply with the necessary road regulations. The safety of all road users is our top priority, and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation during this time,” says Sanral Northern region project manager Oakley van Eyk.
