Motorists should always be well versed with what will be going on in major roads in the country. This enables them to be aware on which roads are experiencing smooth flow of traffic and which ones are experiencing massive delay. Journeys will be planned accordingly on time and inconveniences are avoided. This makes the day for motorists easier and they will be able to achieve the set targets.
Members of the Johannesburg Municipal Police Department on Monday the 13th of September gave out a traffic advisory message which showed what is going on one of the major roads in the country. The road in question is the N1 freeway.
The N1 stretches from the Limpopo Province, passes through Gauteng and connects with the KwaZulu-Natal Province. This might be the busiest of all freeways in the country and an incident which happens on a certain part of it may affect hundreds if not thousands of motorists.
According to a traffic advisory message from the JMPD officials, there are some roadworks which are being done on the N1 particularly the Northbound lanes. They are being carried out just before Beyers Naude Drive.
At the moment, at least 3 lanes have been closed down. Repairs are being done to the off-ramp lane as the city fathers seek to make the roads better. It is not yet known how long it will take for the road to be repaired.
To ensure a smooth flow of traffic, the authorities have since created a temporary off-ramp lane which has been set up further up the road. Motorists are being notified that they should expect delays in the area and they should approach with caution.
Queues of motor vehicles are being seen on the images which were taken. Those motorists who do not wish to experience any inconveniences are being urged to make use of alternative routes.
