King Cetshwayo bridge demolition will result in road closure Of N2 and M13

The N2 and the M13 will be temporarily closed from Saturday 14 October 2023, at 18:00 to Monday 16 October 2023 at 05:00, to facilitate the demolition of King Cetshwayo bridge on the M13, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) has announced.

“The M13 bridge over the N2 will be closed with both the West bound and East bound traffic being unable to use the King Cetshwayo Bridge. The N2 will also be closed to traffic in both directions between the Spaghetti Junction and Umgeni interchanges (North and South bound carriageways)., The closures are due to the demolition of half of the King Cetshwayo bridge on the M13 as part of the N2 upgrade process. The traffic accommodation team, with the assistance of the Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) and Durban Metro Police, will manage and monitor the diversion of traffic during the closure.” said Mabuyi Mhlanga, SANRAL’s N2 Upgrade Programme Manager.

The full road closures are to take place as follows:

M13 closed as follows:

  • East bound (Pinetown to Durban) at the Essex Terrace interchange near Westwood Mall.
  • West bound (Durban to Pinetown) at 45th Cutting.

  • N3 West bound (Durban to Pinetown): Ramp to N2 North (to Umhlanga/King Shaka International Airport).

The alternative routes available to traffic are detailed in the Diversion Route Map overleaf.

The time of closure may need to be moved due to weather. SANRAL will keep the travelling public updated on progress and changes to the above through further media statements.

“SANRAL wishes to apologise to the motoring public for any inconvenience caused during the road closure. This is an unavoidable consequence of the road improvements. Attempts have been made to minimise disturbances as far as possible and closures have been restricted to hours when traffic is at its lowest level,” said Mhlanga.

Motorists are urged to exercise patience while driving through the alternative routes and to plan and adjust their route trips ahead of time. Please adhere to all signage and speed limits.
