The announcement follows MEC's visit to the area following complaints from motorists and residents regarding the state of the road. 

The Department has been maintaining the road from time to time but due to underlying underground water, the road continued to deteriorate. 

"Due to persistent challenges with the road, the Department took a decision to conduct tests and assessments to determine the causes of the deterioration. Our studies have indicated that there was water and rock formation underground that affected the quality of the road. It is for this reason that we have taken a decision to do a complete overhaul and rehabilitation of the road,"

Mamabolo explained. 

The road will be closed for a period of three months starting from Monday, 16 March 2020. During this period, works including blasting will be carried out, which necessitates the closure of the road. Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes through Waterfall to R55. 

"We are cognisant of the inconvenience that the closure will cause, however, the safety of the road users remains a priority. We remain committed to providing cost effective smart mobility as this is a major road linking M1 and other key main roads"

MEC said. 

Mamabolo further announced that the Department will soon be launching a pothole APP where members of the public can report challenges they experience on the road.
