The new section of the North-South Motorway has now increased to 80km/h.

Northbound lanes open

Fri., 26 March, 2021

The northbound lanes of the new section of the North-South Motorway opened on Friday 26 March, 2021.

Speed restrictions will remain in place along the newly resurfaced section until late June, weather permitting. This is to enable excess bitumen to be worn to a safe level and testing and commissioning of the ITS prior to the full speed limit of 80km/h being applied.

Southbound lanes are expected to open in the next week, keep an eye out for more information.
